yup thats the same as the one on mine but mine is welded hard pipes a lot more than silicone joiners. if you want to keep stalling and power loss to a minimum then make sure the metal hard pipes protrude well into the silicone hoses so they cant collapse under vacuum.

I wonder if you will lose much bhp going to the smaller cooler?Dunno

As your air charge temps have got to be higher using a cooler half the size.

Top end bhp slightly less, drivability and throttle response better.

Hi guys thanks for all the support and help though my supercharged project.At the moment he car his not behaving its self Sad

So me and carl have been trying to sort my cooler issues. Thought we d sorted it thursday, but friday going to french car the thing cooked its self in traffic and also one other time going though traffic near bath.then on track the temp rockered lucky the alot of offs ment we where only getting 5-6 laps before being brought back in.the session ended when I came in and the car was smoking,radiator coolant was p**sing out the overflow. So leaft it for a bit topped it up drove fine on the way back and today round town.

Kinda thinking along the lines of selling the charger and getting some bodies and cams Wink

Track was scary but fun, thought quarry would be more scary that it was I get the pictures up and some point Smile

Won't be problems with fans or relays if happening on track. Boddies etc wont help you Sam to be honest you have either got a water pump with no veins left on the back so water doesn't circulate, serious airlock (though I doubt it) or head gasket is on its way out.

Get Carl to do a sniffer test on it when stinking hot. Particularly if its over pressurising and pushing coolant out the overflow I imagine its HG Sad.

I've never noticed mine run any warmer due to supercharger kit other than the oil temp when ragging it and now have a cooler on there to sort that. Probably got to hot at pugfest or on the way there etc and cooked the HG.

Water pump is new as we did the belt etc just before putting the charger on, Im thinking you may have a bigger problem ie head gasket.

Got to think the engines done 117k miles and you just slapped a charger on it, its like asking a pensioner to suddenly run a marathon!

Yeah I guess,hoping its a hg issue quickly checked for mayo and oil in the rad this morning and found none, does nt smoke either.money seems unefficented.

Well fingercrossed because my financial situation atm would probably mean me breaking it to recop my losses which I really really don't want todo Sad

So did grench car show, still working though was issues.well just the one which is my cooling issues .managed to get a few laps in at combe before it completely cooked its self Sad
So now searching for either a hg failure or a better rad, maybe a due core full alloy job.also need to either cut the boost pips and reweld giving me more ground clearance or get the low boost ic welded up ?

Here some pics from the weekend













Hoping its a simple ish fix as lately have ploughed a huge amount of time and money into it and really don't want to be in a situation where I have to break it Sad

The power was truly epic on track was finding hard to get grip through camp but plenty in quarry.was going hell for leather as had a 250 mile trip home.

Looking good mate, prepare for HG

i would have checked this first before spilling the beans on a nice new rad.

You can have the coolant checked for exhaustgasses, very quick way to find out if the HG is the failure.

Its looks great on track, and i like the coolingholes in the bumper, and no way youre breaking this because of a HG failure.. thats peanuts in comparising what you did to the car.

Yeah ive checked engine oil cap, nothing, checked rad fluid got changed quite abit I can't see much out of the orderly.

Is it a obvious colour and spell or a oily colour?

My daily drive meants the car is on a road for quite abit so cooling is nt a issue sits and 80-75.even drove into town and back yesterday and got to 90 when I got home fans cut in when I turned it off.

Anyone now the rough price of a head gasket? And price of rich hg kit?

I will be getting the low boost ic in a some point as the high boost pipes are well too low can't be dealing with having a titchy bum when ever I go into town on have to go over a speed bump.

the rich w gaskets are around 85 on their own, or about 120 with the same head bolts he would use for a highboost 6
