1> You really shouldnt worry about it UNTIL you are making numbers... I ran mine up until I crossed the 200 point.

2> The stock radiator and stock fans suck... eventually you will want to water cool your turbo.. which will put even more strain on the **** OEM components and eventually you will run into the said overheating issues (especially on track/hot days)

3> See what paul said about godspeed... for 160 bucks you cannot go wrong.. half the ppl on this site have them.

This is true, the silky smoof godspeed radiator!!!
At that kind of power, in Florida, a built motor, it is not worth risking it, just get it now and do a coolant re-route and be done with it before you blow another motor.
