Hi can everyone post their sleek cooling ideas. running turbo XR6 with 14psi can result in huge heat. I have bigger intercooler but this probably blocks the radiator for cool air. What about thermostats? heat tape, any other ideas?

Here is a pic of my car by the way. If anyone is interested in those 20 inch wheels, first person with $2000 can have them. As brand new and in sydney..

Post your cooling ideas please...

Get a decent oil cooler set up, and a bigger trans cooler if you dont already have one,
mount them in the front fenders if you have room, Hook fans up to the oil and trans cooler for those
massive long burnouts. :) PS cooler might be
somthing to consider aswell!
I think PWR might make better radiator too (expensive tho).
Thermal tape is good, keeps the heat in the exhaust, and should give you like 1 or 2 Kw... not that you will notice it. :(
Heat shields also work well.
Every degree down makes a difference when
your trying to make things cooler.

and dont expect replys so soon!


change the coolant for redline watter wetta and distelled water! that works awesome

you prolly need to get the heat out of the engine bay
so mabey the EF/EL style bonnet scoops to help remove the excess heat

before using heat tape get the headers ceramic coated

Put in an engine oil cooler, use decent turbo grade oil, and maybe a bigger radiator. There are HD units, taxis had them.
