  1. I appreciate that but then it would probably end up the cost of brand new ones ?
  2. I would of had these but I’m miles away
  3. I have a Powerspeed box, repackable, 7 inch can but not 100% it’s 2 1/2 inch inlet, I’ll check when I’m home later
  4. Sorry I thought they had brackets to fit uprights, I hadn’t known they were a simple replacement
  5. Hi ash what uprights are the brakes for ? Do they come with the fixing brackets ?

    Over heating

    @SootySportswitch turns on around 85 degrees, the point is I shouldn’t need a fan while driving and free air passing through the rad, any power demand and the temp goes through the roof so have to be very mindful and be smooth, the cars built to be , let’s say....well used but I can’t all the while this temp keeps rising, I’m baffled, I’ve done a block test too and that’s all fine. @the stoatno thermostat, I removed it.

    Sorry engine is a zetec blacktop, all internals uprated, supercharged, the pipes In the rad are too and bottom (my drawing , sorry) @RussH i know because it’s boiled over 3 times now, all different coolant, I’ve even put wetter water in to help lower the temp, the dash seems to read around 10 degrees higher @Thrustyjust there is a small outlet pipe on the other side that’s blanked so I take that off to bleed it, I’ve run the engine several times up to temp to check the rad (like a house radiator) feels hot throughout @kenton taken away all the small ali Westfield pipe work and replaced with silicone hoses, the two heater outlets at the bottom of the thermostat housing are blanked off, is this correct ? Taken the thermostat out to check it wasn’t that, still runs hot when power is demanded ?

    So I’ve been having difficulties with the temperature of my car, this all started after I upgraded to a new dash 2 i changed some of the pipe work to neaten it up a bit and I’m wondering if I’ve made a mistake at all, see picture for what I currently have, it would be good to see diagrams of what everyone else is running as regards to plumbing cheers
