I think that if you can make the plumbing work, and the custom mount it will do well in your hot climate. GWHF

thanks for the reply ,
the plumbing it´s more or less the same has swift gti
only the downpipe is a little far from the gti radiator, about 5 or 6cm to the side, no trouble att all i think
the mounts will require some hard work with some hardware, but i like to customize, for better results

I have a radiator from an Audi 80, 2.0L 8 valve.

Holes for the bottom mounts are already in the Swift x-member, inlet and outlet are in the same place as the Swift, and all you need to do is extend the existing coolant hoses and enlarge them (most silicone hose manufactures do them).

Plus it gives you more room in the engine bay as the radiator fits under the upper panel.

ImageImage

I've now fitted the fan (non standard) on the back of the rad where the original was.

I have done many rally's with this set-up, and the car hasn't got hot once.
The last one was 3 weeks ago in 25+ degrees of heat and 10 mile stages revving the engine to 8500rpm (engine is 160hp), never went over 110 degrees all day.

Never had issues with the temp, only time we saw the temp get to around 125 degrees was when we had finished a stage and waiting at a control, and that was because I hadn't manually turned the fan on (I have a seperate switch on the dash to overide the fan temp sensor), however I still have the fan sensor fitted which kicked in and the temp dropped back within 30 seconds.

As I said before, on the last event we were doing 10 mile stages flat out in every gear on a hot sunny day with no problems.

I've had that set-up for around 8 years now and never had problems.

Short vid of the event, we're at 2min 23secs.

We won Class A (up to 1400cc, 15 in class) by 5mins and 21secs :D

Thanks.

Pretty much the only thing that's left of the original car is the bodyshell, even that's had every seam welded, everything else has been modified in some way.

It has an expansion cap fitted on the inner wing so it's a closed loop system, same as most Audi/VW set up's.
