    yes get one from a south africa spec car
    the better way would be a uprated Rad in the car to cool the water down better

        with the power your running a new thermostat wont make the car run any cooler
        what your going to need it a uprated alloy radiator to cool the water down better

          Happs, I would have a look at what angle your cooler is sitting at, as it must be stopping air getting thru to the water rad, if your running 100 degrees on your gauge, real temps must be merging on 120 and you will warp the head mate

            but the strange thing is that last summer there were no problems the problems this summer is after i had upgraded to the hybrid turbo.....

              you could fit a small water rad to cool the water down after the Turbo for under £200

                  ask any good tuners they will say more power = more heat
                  you need to up the cooling system on cars to keep them cool or they just cook

                      Hmm this sounds very interesting, will this cool the super heated water from the turbo, or just aid in cooling the turbo itself?

                        it is wery interesting....it will cool the hot water from the turbo befor going back to the expansion tank and then there will not come turbo hot water back in the cooling system....

                        that i will try to look into....

                          they are good on the Turbo cars I had one on the cossie
                          along with uprated Rad
                          it cool's the water down kind of a pre Rad Cooler
                          well worth the money on high powered cars
