higher cyl pressure does increase heat, on top of hotter exh temps and oil temps etc etc. this is where a great innercooler and e85 come into play for best results.  i run a 2 core 2 pass radiator on my turbo 4cyl. i believe it's  a 2 core, 31" x 16 or 17" tall and 2 pass.

Thanks Big Dave. I had my finger on the "buy now" button on that radiator, but it was a little too big for my space. I bought a 16" X 29" X 2" with dual fans. I am guessing that yours is turbo. If so, do they make more heat than n/a? I plan on calling Outfront about safe rpm, but what is your opinion?
Yes mine is turbo. I would thank the add heat from the oil retuning for the turbo would add heat. as for rpm limit. mine is set at 6800 from outfront.

best bang for the buck. works great on my 2.5 suby. Aluminum 3 fans. I only run two fans and it cools it great. my scope gets in the way of the center fan. I run the 219.99 one the fans mounting system is better on it.  This is on Ebay.

I just ordered a radiator twice as big. Dual fans. It would reach 210-220. I would just stop and the fan would take it back to 190 pretty fast. I never turned it faster than 4000 rpm. I have the Stinger ecu from John.

Hi harvey0,

Tell us a bit about yourself?

Any cool projects on tap?  Prior experience?  

Do you have the winning lotto numbers?

i agree with fabr......spal fan all the way. cfm rating is key.  what temp did it hit at its hottest?  if your running the stock ecu then it has a factory rev limiter. if you have an aftermarket ecu then you can set it. if you can set it then i would say 6k rpm would be safe enough until you find some hard data. there a few suby guys on here that should be able to tell you.

Too big of a ratio gap between 2nd and 3rd. I also need to research the safe Max rpm of a stock 2.5. I didn't expect the old used stock clutch to work, but it did. I couldn't push it hard for very long at a time, because the engine temp would go up.
