Just a data point here-
with temps at 100F here in Denver these days - slightly higher on the roadways - I took the car out on the highway over the weekend to see what temp she would be running at in such hot weather. Cruising at 80mph (w/ambient of ~100F) my temp gauge said about 87C (190F). At one point I exited and stopped - temps climbed to 95C - but dropped quickly once back on the highway. On slow seconday streets temps hovered around 95C (203F). This is with 3B motor and stock urq cooling system. I was not driving the car hard on the slow streets and the highway was flat.
With these kind of water temps I wonder if a big alum rad would even be much of an improvement....
