Basicly after a trip into the gravel at lavant yesterday I need a new rad.
I see on ebay a suzuki dealer is selling a new one( first dibs)
However as I am thrashing the pants off the car and its supposedly got 160bhp I am wondering if i need or on the safe side should run something bigger. I read somewhere that you can use an audi one( dont quote me on that)
What do you all use
Cheers

Hi Brian,

Talk with Andy aka Swiftmotorsports.
He converted his Gti to run an Audi 80 or something like that.
It is also bigger capacity so I'm sure it will benefit for the cooling your uprated engine and rally driving.
