Ok. So in front of my radiator is. Another r4adiator like thing. Im pretty sure its for the AC.
What im wondering is I don't have my AC connected. Can I just take that thing out. Will this make the radiator cool more efficiantly.

Nope 5 speed.
It has the AC gas cylinder on the front of it. So I figure its a AC thing. Coukd be a oil cooler or something. But I think they are on the bottom of the rad.

Yeh it'd be the AC. If in doubt just follow the lines.

To answer the question: Yes, it will help the radiator cool more efficiently. Bit of a no-brainer, would be like turning a fan in front of your face from low to high.

I've been thinking of doing this as well, as i dont use air/con much (even in qld summer). and my radiator temps reach 105 degrees sometimes. Removing the condenser would help.

when i had my old eb i took the aircon radiator out as it was stuffed. I had to put some mesh in the grill at the bottom because leaves and crap would get in it and stick to the radiator. Most people said i was a d**k for doing that because they said rocks would hit my radiator and damage it, but i never had problems with that.

car never overheated again once i took the aircon radiator out.

you have no A/C what so ever or just not gassed or compressor stuffed etc?

You can remove it I would suggest as another member said put a mesh or something just to limit the s**t that will build up etc.
