1.8 bar modification for 5kcsq

I have a question about radiator capacity/modifications that might be necessary to accommodate a higher boost. I am in the process of installing SJM-AutoTechnik's modified ECU with the 1.8 bar WG spring in my 87 5kcsq. The higher boost ought to mean higher heat generation in the engine, and therefore should need a higher heat dissipating capacity. In a typical heat exchanger design, we would increase the area of the heat exchanger, or let the radiator operate at a higher temperature (i.e., increase the temparature difference between the coolant and the air to accomodate a larger heat duty with the same area. Is there any BTDT on this matter among the listers on the impact of increasing boost on radiator/engine cooling performance ? Thanks for the help.
