I use a Setrab radiator, which is 20" x 6" x 1.5". fits under a corrado bumper perfectly. completely invisible unless you bend down and look for it Very Happy

I use this pump. Probably a bit extreme but better to have more flow than not enough Very Happy 3 gallon water tank in the boot to go with it. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I wonder if an oil cooler would suffice?,i've got a new 16row cooler that's just sitting there dowin nowt and it has half inch attachments so it's easy to plumb in.

I would get the largest pre rad you can get behind the bumper to insure maximum cooling.

My one is quite large (27"x 8" x 2.5")and houses a filler cap at the top,it holds a fair amount of coolant so ive had no need for tanks in the rear etc.

I use an r32 aux pump,(but i will upgrade this as its a bit week imop.) to run through a xs-power chargecooler 19mm hoses.

Also i run a aprillia RSV cooling fan on the rear of the rad controlled by my inlet temp gauge.

Im only just fitting duel inlet temp probs so will give me a more accurate readings,but the inlet manifold has always been cool to touch after a hard run.

Some pics.

I bought it from the states when the pound was good,not so good now and your better off getting a custom one made or go to the likes of pace etc and see what sizes they do.

Allrite James,i found it,thanks mate Very Happy.
If i was to go another way such as,maybe using two 13 row oil coolers
side by side,1 in each wheel arch,do you reckon it'd be enough to dissipate the heat produced?.
I want to try and re-connect my corrado's air conditioner as it gets really hot here in summer so i'm going to need all the space i can get behind the grille.
Tell me what you think.

I could not say if the oil coolers are a good idea or not.

Most oil coolers are thick walled in construction and would dissipate the heat slower than a thinner alloy rad,you would be best going down something like what ive got or use a car rad to do the job.

Or an aircon rad but the inlet and outlet need to be decent in size for flow.

I was going to use some motorbike rads a while back,small and have the right inlet/outlet sizes plus most have fans attached....just a thought!
