Re: Part numbers, and overheating problems

I run 2.0 bar and never had an over heating problem. At the most, I get
just a mil. over the half way line and that's it. I get that sometimes on
normal boost conditions. I would check for clogged anything. Your
condition doesn't seem right to me even with the extra boost. Mine is an
auto on top of everything and it doens't get hot. Check the rad for
clogging, overflow tube, overfilling, blown head gasket. Be weary of
engine flushes. Could be a bad cap, too. Good luck.
