Well, upgrading engine needs to be cooled good, guys don't know will the stock radiator and fans be enough for 370 hp. Should i look at be cool system, or it's not worth it, mean the money waste?

I think you should be ok with the stock stuff,but I recommend if you have the $$$ to change to a Meziere electric water pump. By the way, how did you get all those American cars over to Mother Russia? ed

Well, i don't know how to answer your question:) how do people get to Russia? By plane or by sea, surely. All the cars/bikes/ATV, etc, get to Russia/Ukraine by sea, to Russia they arrive to Finland at first, and then go to Russian customs in Saint-Petersburg. There are plenty of them here from US- those ugly Infinity FX, pretty nice BMW X5, unreliable Mb ML320, and others.

I just want to lower the temp a little bit. So you want to say it's not worth that money? Found kit for 1200$ with the fans, and all the hardware.

The stocker will fit your needs. When you are modifing your engine for all out race then you should upgrade. Plus there are cheaper alternatives to BeCool.

Spend no money on fans and radiator and be fine. A 160° thermostat and custom fan programming will do all you need. Put your money into something worthwhile.

Well, thanx. Any ideas about short headers, know that long ones would be better, but can't afford because of the bumpy roads. What short ones will be best?

Charismatic Racing Concepts. Basically a stock style radiator but made of all aluminium which allows for better cooling. But again if you're not building an all out fully modified engine then your stocker will be fine however this makes for a nice replacement for not that much more coin.

You have reverse cooling, so you're already ahead of the game with factory stuff.
