What radiators are you all using on your 7mgte.
Mine has a stock mk2 radiator and is overheating at anything over 50 mph.

The radiator I have could be bad, but I have heard people saying that mk2 radiators cant handle the 7mgte.
Just to clear some things up,
I have allready
Flushed system
Changed Coolant
Put in Redline Water Wetter
Changed Thermostat
Changed Radiator Cap

Thanks in advance

Ken,

There are probably other options as well but most of us here in the desert southwest (Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada) are using the 3 core radiator that Don Culbertson and Shawn Pease developed. A little pricey maybe but your car won't overheat. I've been running mine for over a year in the desert and have never had an issue with it.

Have you cleaned the rad? They get lots of stuff in them and don't get much airflow, leaves, dirt grime etc. Just try it and you will see what I mean. If you have cleaned it, I say it's time for a new rad. Jim K is working on an alum one you might want. :)

Yes make sure you clean between the ac and the radiator. Lots of stuff gets trapped in between there. Regs 7m runs on the stock mk2 cooling system but it is not as hot up here.

I have cleaned everything such as fins, and in between radiator and ac, the only option i have left is a new radiator.
What is the cost on the Don C and Shawn P unit?
