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....
