Yes Cobalt, vacuum advance was included in the 45, i have a large trans cooler, i thought was too big but transmission is running within right temps, engine is on a Jeep so with under load i meant uphill snow driving like a did yesterday, snow was pretty deep and partially frozen so vehicle needs a lot of power to drive through, also i have the stock temp gauge wich just gives you an idea of the temp because there are no numbers on it but just C/H, i mesured with an infrared gun while the gauge pointer was about in between of C and H and temp was close to 205 F.
Temp sender is on the cylinder head, pass side, i guess that was the stock spot for it even if i have alu heads.
