are you sure you need a new radiator? at idle, with the fans running it should more more than efficient enough to cool off ANY engine...

Check for other issues first;

- proper amount of coolant
- engine oil level
- is the thermostat opening when it reaches temp
- Is the rad cap in good condition
- are the fans running
- is there a blockage between cooler and condenser
- head gasket issues

you may know about all these things, but I decided to post this because no one else has commented on other problems that could cause overheating

I thought stock thermostat was 180? In anycase I don't have a factory intake I have a eddy vic jr. And as far as what I have that much tied up into.
Teksid
1000s 5.0 mmr stroker 24cc dish arp 2000 hardware
Ap steel rings
Melling high pressure oil pump
Mhs Stage 3 head cam combo w manley beadlock ss valves stage 3 blower cams with hd springs
Victor jr with eddy fuel rails sheet metal upper intake.
10%od innovators west dampener
BBK lt with cat less x pipe.
Snow stage 3 water methanol injection
Mcleod original twin w/ aliminum flywheel
Custom made 26 spline input.
That was the stuff to make this set up work, then the tranny dropped 4th so now I have bronze shift pads the shift forks were already steel, carbon fiber blocker rings and billet keys.
And even though it wasn't in this years upgrade I also have a lethal performance budget return system running 2 aeromotive stealth 340s, and a vortech si trim with a 3.25 tungsten carbide coating and a tread stone 3 core Fmic tial 50mm bov and hpx slow style maf through 75mm accufab tb.

I also tried repainting the car but the clear had epic issues but just this year I have receipts for pretty close to is say about 14k. Not including paint stuff. And at this point the other stuff I need to fix like my melted steering shaft and burned o2 sensors...

I honestly think the over heating was a fan issue. But it was hot as ***** out and when the ac stopped working I forgot to check the fans I was more curious as to why the ac stopped working. So once I fix the steering shaft and o2 sensors I'll be checking that stuff out because like you I don't see it over heating at idle. Even though humidity was high and it was 95 out lol

Stock Therm is 195 I believe. My new intake goes on tomorrow along with a 180 degree therm. It should make a little difference hopefully.

I was gonna say 5900 seems low for that kind of build but lack of cams and springs would explain it, I'd say you stand a good Chance at 700, how much you have left in the blower? Sounds like your current set up may be maxed at 7k. In any case I'm hoping for your current numbers but at 7k instead of 5900 through an si trim.

My d1sc is about pullied out, and I run a 10%od crank. Curious to see how much boost was missing from 5900 to 7k though, probably gonna add meth as well considering the boost to pump gas ratio as well.

Is it pullied out at 5900? Or current set up will max sc out at 7? I've seen almost 700 out of a 2v on a d1sc but that doesn't flow near as well as b heads and it was on e-85. You def need meth, surprised you aren't running it already with 20psi. Your leaving a lot on the table I would think. My tuner wouldn't let me run 18 without meth lol. You just ed up pulling all the timing to make it work anyway almost seems pointless but it obviously worked in your case
