thanks for the tip, if the OE one is 26mm I'd wonder about a 42mm fitting anyway as there isn't much space to the belt pulleys as it sits now. I might look into getting a custom one made, could possibly get better efficiency without it having to be heaps thicker than stock. Or just swap the IC out for a plazmaman or something, but that would be a shame.

Thanks, I looked up Fenix radiators and it seems they do a 28mm standard, 32mm 'heavy duty' and 42mm 'performance' radiators for the FG. I don't really want to go to the effort of changing this IC out for something smaller so the PWR radiator is not going to be an option, but 42mm could work... pretty bloody tight in there though.

 

Even though the tune I was running was supposed to be a track tune, I might get another one done with much lower boost. No point running a tune that the cooling system can't handle for more than a few minutes.. reminds me of the hours wasted overclocking PCs...

A richer tune helps cooling too. Lean AFR's gain power, but useless on a hot circuit.

That's not bad for an old boat anchor.  Only 2 seconds off a HSV W1

There an easy 34 there next time.

Not sure I'm any where near Warren Luffs pace on Trofeo's and massive brakes. :) , but it gives an indication of my car's potential.

Have no dought he would put it around in a 32.
