Full race probably built that car with intentions other then road racing. In a car designed for drag racing a back door I/C with a half size radiator is usually pretty ideal. I can not see the pics but i know that there is room for a backdoor intercooler and a sufficiently sized radiator, you might want to go to a dual pass radiator if the one you have isnt already dual pass.
I just looked at the pics on google, there is no doubt nothing about that setup is designed to go around a track, thats a highway monster/ drag car. Full race knows what they are doing and im sure with proper drive train that car could run some incredible times on the drag strip. That being said i still would not make any changes to the cooling system until you know it is an issue. The turbo on the other hand might need a downsize to be ideal on a track. Either way super nice hardware, even if its not designed for what you have in mind.

I was looking through your engine bay pictures, and was wondering, why is the engine so crooked?

Did you take all of their stickers off? That would be the first thing I would do, **** looks stupid.
