can't help having the rocker cover breathers plumbed back to one another, don't think it's suppose to be like that, probably why it's not running so good

Yea mate, you will need that vented.

Have you run it with that 1/2 sized radiator in it yet? You will probably find that you will need your radiator fan on constant, even for normal driving. My car only lasted about 5 laps of the medium track at taupo before temps went off the gauge...

not liking the look of that blue silicon vacum hose you have used for the turbo oil feed........... you have gone to all the trouble of using braided line but havent been bothered to get a 90 degree speed flow fitting..........

Why?
The NA's run perfectly in any outside temps with them no matter how hard you abuse them.
No reason a low CR turbo engine will run any hotter than an NA in any usual blatting around.
Those rads actually have plenty of volume and will work ok but will prolly struggle with track time thats for sure.

Itll be fine.

Evan, would you mind stopping undermining people?

I am speaking from experience here. I ran one for half a year. It worked but temps would sit at 3/4 around town with the fan on. Trips in the country were hard because of all the accelerating/boosting needed (no just a constant speed like the motorway). A turbo does introduce a fair bit more heat into the cooling system.

I'm not talking out my ass.

If you want a good radiator that will fit and be small enough to run 3'' piping either side of the radiator use an 85 Ford Laser one. Identical core width to an ET one, looks to be the same core thickness and in/outlet positions, just has tanks at the top and bottom pposed to sides. Mounting tooke to be simple too.

It looks to me like a blue sleeve on a stainless pipe.
