Marvick08GT Posted August 23, 2017 Share Posted August 23, 2017 EDIT: Left out info lol, I never monitored coolant temps until after my big turbo. Having this issue but the gauge on the dash never moves. When I looked, the car had the 1bar eared cap on the reservior and radiator. Thats why I replaced both caps to 1bar eared on reservior and 1.37bar on radiator. Got my new radiator caps from subaru. Installed them and bled the system. Driving around town I'm at 189-205. When I get on it (even revs with no boost) I can get the temp to go up by driving it hard. It doesnt shoot up, just creeps as long as I'm in it (highest was 223 before caps, highest now has been 217 under constant load.) Coolant used is 50/50 Motul Inugel Expert. Thermostat is new (PO), but unknown brand (probably cheap) As soon as I am not in it, the temps come down very quickly to ~200. Reservoir stays at the same level, no bubbling when shut off. I know my radiator is cheap and aftermarket (everything the PO used was cheap AF... Is my radiator just not sufficient? Thanks guys! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
