Re: cooling sys wows

I would look at upgrading the radiator, the stock one doesn't offer all that much cooling especially with a blower. I havent done too many kms with my blower but haven't had any cooling problems so far. I have a 4 core radiator instead of the stock 2 core and twin Davis Craig fans. Some recommend alloy radiators which are great but cost a fortune, I would say at least look at a 3 row copper core if not a 4.

I've been reccomended to add a thermo between the intercooler and a/c cooler/radiator if possible should i come across any overheating problems
