SEE BELOW:
[QUOTE=Braineack;193233]the godspeed radiator is huge and cheap, see our group buy. - Thank You!

you'll want to upgrade your fans, one for space, two to draw more CFM. - I have 1 16" electronic fan (not sure of the cfm) but its more then the 2 stock

you'll want to completely enclose the radiator shroud. top, sides, and bottom. - this took 3 hours to properly do but i ducted all air with 1/16" tin

you'll want to consider a scooper to draw in fresh air under the intercooler and directly into the radiator. - has a slight body kit, but nothing major, i also have little air ducts (blinkers and head light)

you'll want to perform a coolant reroute. - this should be next, i just found out about this earlier today

you'll want to consider an extraction hood. - modified the brackets on the hood, 1 1/2" extensions to raise the rear of the hood up to make a sort of cowl induction hood, this also allows for 2 air scoops at the headlights


you need to back up your claims of power. like i said, i havent been running my full set up in 1 year, with the fm turbo at 15psi, external bov, link ecu, 880cc injectors, 2.5 straight pipe, 12" intercooler, o-ringed head, and in tuning stages( I HATE THE LINK ECU DO NOT BUY IT!!!!) i put down 259bhp [email protected] 6800 235 tor @4500... THIS IS ON 15PSI I RUN 18-20PSI AND I HAVE A 100% LARGER INTERCOOLER THAT I RUN... once tuned properly, it should put me at 300+ on a 1.6L... and i havent even played with the cams yet

first, you need to adjust your attitude supernewb
second, you need to learn how to use the search function

the people that have tried to help you forgot more about common problems with the miata cooling problems than you have learned so far, so respect their input and choose your responses more wisely, getting banned will not help you any will it?

so far you got good suggestions, so spend some time searching about them and just see what all has been discovered to cure your problems

Bwahahahahahaha Nice. Do you also live your life a 1/4 mile at a time?

Miata.net might be a better place for you to get advice. If you stay on here you'll likely end up crying.

- My attitude was fine until paul insulted my intellegence


second, you need to learn how to use the search function.

- This is my first time on the website, i have searched hours on end in different forums looking for help but never joined one for help. asked many people in the spec miata circuit. and i have managed to put my brain and others together to get what i have now, thats why i came here in the first place... more help. i do not mean to disrepect anyone, but paul needs an attitude adjustment, because he started this.


the people that have tried to help you forgot more about common problems with the miata cooling problems than you have learned so far, so respect their input and choose your responses more wisely, getting banned will not help you any will it?

-no, and the people that have helped me i have greatly appreciated their feedback and ive said that, and IF IVE LEFT YOU OUT.. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!



so far you got good suggestions, so spend some time searching about them and just see what all has been discovered to cure your problems.

- I am definately looking for some feedback on the godspeed rad any input?

Paul can very likely become your best friend, you should kiss his *** not recomend he adjusts his attitude, Paul is one of the most helpful people i know on here and would never start ****...its just notlike him, yes i read the posts and conclude that he did nothing worng, he assumed you ran no IC due to your lack of mention of other IC you are running
i suggest you appologize to him...the guy has done way to much good to be talked down to
you called him idiot first, yes you did, now shake hands and make up, lols
but seriously, you are new here, cant start **** yet...wait your turn
look at my initial posts, i thought i was big and bad too
no one here will bug you if behave baby

- I was not refering to no IC, honest mistake by anyone. what i was refering to was the tap water comment. that insulted me. in my eyes you would have to be a SUPERNOOB to not know to use distilled water, which is where i got idiot from. therefor i deduced he called me an idiot (IMPLIED).

i suggest you appologize to him...the guy has done way to much good to be talked down to.
- if hes willing to kiss and make up and say that he didnt mean to insult my intelligence with tap water then im fine with appologizing calling him an idiot.

you called him idiot first, yes you did, now shake hands and make up, lols
but seriously, you are new here, cant start **** yet...wait your turn

any fyi, i was behaving just fine until i took pauls post about water as an insult, and 2 others have insulted me, read my posts and you will see i was nice and considerate to all the were the same to me
