Probably wont be any differences. Temps never went above 185ish before.

Maybe oil temps will be a bit lower because it should flow more through the radiator.

How many parts of your car have cost you more than $500?

Set of rims? Tires? maybe the MS?

Wheels were less than $500... Tires were less than $500... Twin disc was less than $500...

Technically Xidas were more than $500. But I sold my old suspension for as much as I bought the Xidas for.

MS was the only thing on the car that cost more than $500 in one go.

The TSE rad is expensive, because it's worth it. The difference in price paid for itself in ONE track day that I didn't have to cut short due to overheating.

I've never had to slow down because of overheating. It really never goes above 200. Ducting and hood vent works pretty well.

Only got the CSF for potential reliability concerns with the CXRacing one. Even though there are no signs of it deteriorating.

Fairnuff. I was figuring since you were changing you were running a bit warm with the old rad on hot days.

Is the one you ordered black and all metal? From the drawn pictures I have seen on amazon, it looks the same as the rad in my car.

There wasn't even a picture. Just found the part number on the csf website and then searched it on Amazon.

I would have bought it from 949 if I didn't have the gift cards from work. No reason not to.

So I swapped my tires side to side last week. And I have more outside wear than inside wear. Last time I checked tire temps they were quite even, at around 32-34psi at the track.

Should I try running more pressure? 205 z2*'s

Ahha. Yeah, mine is some strange brass one that looks like the drawing for the other CSF available on amazon (the $100ish one).
