    Got my car dyno and very happy with the outcome. The Best run is 423.4whp SAE. After 3 pulls, my coolant temperature is touching the red markClick here to enlargeNow I am thinking of a electric fan

    Before you buy any of that. Check your fan clutch. When I had a AA kit I had some heating issues at first. It was the fan clutch.

    If your coolant hit the red section after only 3 dyno pulls, there is something wrong. I would start with these potential problems in this order:

    Air in coolant system (90% this is the problem)
    Faulty Fan Clutch
    Faulty Thermostat
    Faulty Water Pump

    Unless... Was there a fan in being used in front of your car on the dyno? Did you let your car just sit there and idle for a long period of time?

    The place where I do the dyno only has a mid-size fan blowing in front of the car, which I think not efficient enough to cool down the engine temperature. I have never seen my coolant temperature get past middle when pushing on public road. However if I intend to bring it down to a track, then I think I need better coooling

    If you car over heats while driving turn the heat on.

    I'm just talking from my experience. Everybody was saying alot different stuff. The fan clutch would be first place I look.

    Air in the system makes sense since it's a new install, and from what I remember, you have to drain the coolant and replace it right?

    Replace coolant and let any air bubbles out.

    Get a fan clutch change or motorsport thermo... Both will cool the car considerably.

    No I don't need to completely drain the coolant in order to install the kit, but I do have to take out the water hose that on top of the radiator in order to remove the plastic bracket that attach on the fan shroud. I have to top off about 500ml of coolant/water mix after the installed, then I bleed it with the vent screw. How do I completely flush the coolant? I can't locate the drain plug for the engine, and IIRC there is also no drain plug underneath the radiator as well Click here to enlarge
