Default WTB Radiator Suitable for 250 whp

Its summer time, and my newly turbocharged car has started to overheat on hot 90+ degree days. Does anyone have a extra radiator sitting around they want to sell me? I am running the 1.125" racing beat sway bar up front, so it will need to fit around that. Let me know what you guys have.

You could probably get away with keeping the stocker and adding some ducting. Also look into the coolant reroute. I run a cxracing (I think that's the brand) two core rad. Paid $220 shipped. You probably need to get some slim fans if going that route. Right now I only have one fan in because the IC piping under the throttle body gets in the way. I've got an FM sway up front, which is a 1" solid bar, so not quite as big as the RB one, but it's not an issue at all.

Do you have a coolant re-route? the main problem in the Miata cooling system is NOT the radiator, is the the shitty flow throughout the engine. If I were you I would a re-route instead of buying a bigger radiator. One is cheaper; two you will help your #4 piston not to melt, detonate due to the already mentioned shitty flow. My $0.02

I have looked in to coolant rerounting, but right now I am looking for a cheap radiator as I am affraid mine might be leaking. There was a fair amount of collant pooled in my undertray after I left my car sitting for two weeks during a clutch install. I can not find where it actually leaked from. If I can get a good deal on somehtiing that offers better cooling capabilty, why not be better safe than sorry is my plan.
