I'll drain my radiator and put new coolant.

You don't have to drain and refill. Jack up the front of your car as high as you can. Remove the radiator cap and then start the car. Let the engine warm up until the fan turns on and off. Refill the radaitor as coolant level goes down. Repeat letting the fans turn on and off two more times. During this time also watch temp gauge and make sure it is staying about 11-12oclock.

I bought a radiator cap from o'rileys and replaced the old one. The temperature stayed at "12:00" but would lean closer to hot after a somewhat long drive. I didn't remove the bubbles yet, I'll do that once the car cools down.

The problem I have now is getting the mspnp to run properly and to fix my coolant temp issue. I need to play with my VE table and AFR table so it doesn't lean out. I believe it's heatsoaking due to leaning out.

.. I changed the rad, thermostat, upper and lower hoses, and bled the system. My coolant-air density settings are off.. I didn't bother to tweak on that yet.

...shouldnt take 3 months to install a turbo kit and get the car running on a stand alone. Average time it takes 2 days to install a turbo kit, maybe 3 with an intercooler and a week to tune it with the first day getting most of the map tuned and the rest dealing with cold start and idle stuff.

took 3 days to install the kit with intercooler and didn't bother to tune it yet. Car sat for a while ever since the "heatsoaking" problem. I ordered some rx7 460cc injectors. I'll try to do another datalog today and post it up on here.

You have the ms.. tune that pull the junk fpr.

Disconnect the waste gate and tune on the stock injectors up to 100ish kpa. Stock injectors will give you plenty of fuel.
