    Charge cooler radiator ideas

    I can see a career change coming for you Dave, Radtec track tester

    What's worse is that it appears Radtec have just gone along with a request. Surely they should be advising what's going to work and what's not

    Front number plates

    I had a 305 x 75 plate on mine for years, never any problems with police, bumps or mot

    Mine was running at 98c on the gauge which I established was over-reading by 4c, so actual on track temps were around 94c On normal road use the gauge would show 93-95c, so roughly around 90c

    Depends where the 10psi of boost Dave referred to is being measured. I am sure I read somewhere that a typical set up will lose around 2psi of boost from the compressor outlet to the throttle body

    What is your coolant mix ratio?

    It's a C30-74 which can be spun up to 120,000 rpm from memory. If Dave is running the reduced pulley (75mm I think?) that I had on it then it will be close to that level at 7000 engine rpm. I think I had peak boost at 13psi with that set up. I did run a 6" barrel charge cooler setup with the London Taxi heater matrix as linked above. When I had it mapped at Skuzzle with this setup I was seeing 60c intake manifold temps after being charge cooled. I swapped to the radtec and the intake temps came down to less than 40c. Dave - what coolant temps are you seeing? And where is the temp being measured? Have you ducted the nose? Taken the grille out?

    Mark, thanks for the observation. The brackets I have mounted to are the same bracket that held the rear seat belt upper mounting which is why I used them. What I have made is an copy of a bar that is available on the market to purchase. I will take a look though and see if there is a way to improve it

    Front seats will go when I have found some eBay bargain replacements

    Front brake upgrade complete. The pedal is absolutely rock hard with the engine off but a bit spongy with the engine running. System has been bled several times including a software/ecu forced ABS pump purge/bleed. Hopefully it is a bit soft as the pads need bedding in. Also the fact the caliper piston is slightly larger will no doubt be contributing to this I guess?
