If you were tracking the car constantly and the engine was running higher than normal temps, I'd say go for it.
But I'd be looking at an oil cooler first in that case.
Would it actually be any lighter, as its high flow, surely it will be larger core wise so would hold a larger volume of water? so probably not any lighter.
you could go for a cool running thermostat, or get an OEM item from a hot country like Australia or South Africa. but then you might have warming up problems with the car as it wouldn't get up to temp properly...
Please don't think I'm having a go about it either. I thought fitting a bigger dual core full width alloy radiator to my DC2 turbo would keep it nice and cool on a hot day on track.NOPE! Because of the extra volime of water in the rad it just delayed the time before the overheat protection kicked in on the ECU.
The problem was actually the bloody intercooler restricting the flow of air to the rad and oil cooler. As soon as I moved it from in front of the air dam on the bumper, temps dropped away to 86C driving and only creeped up a little in traffic instead of 105C
Hi most times when starting the car i hear a bad loud'ish grinding sound for 1 to 3 seconds. Car runs fine, just this sound. Some times it doesnt make it, other times it does. I've done over 210k km, so the car isn't new anymore.
Any ideas? Starter motor? PCV?
Any suggestions on what to...

It will be the only car in my house hold. It'll sometimes be used for driving around Uk and abroad, sometimes with my young daughter.
Heard some people say the FK2 is a harsh ride. How bad is it compared to the FK8? am I better...
Hi i have purchased a Honda type r 2007. I love the car and i have taken a great interest in making it feel like new again. everything else seems in order apart from the interior rattles. I have sorted out a few such as the squeak coming from the interior light panel, taped up the metal seat...
Hi guys, i recently bought a Type r fn2 with 106300 km.
Today is 110k and since i bought it i had to top 1l of oil.
I drive it normal to go to work, 15km total and some vtec pulls on the weekend.
Seems a bit weird and i suspect i have to change piston rings.
Just got an unlucky CTR?
Hi peeps, so i decided to replace the PCV valve on my FN2 Type R 2009 and snap the end of the threads of came off inside? Sigh... Can someone tell me the actual name of where the valve goes in, and can it be removed via the 2 bolts that keep it secure? :( was such a easy just job just not my...
