Post subject:  1.5 GTi Conversion Questions - Radiator

Hello,

I am looking into doing a 1.5 conversion to my swift GTi, after an accident at the tracks, I have to buy a new radiator. I used an ebay aluminium OEM replacement radiator with no problems at all in my 1.3 engine doing 112whp (stock compression). The temperature stood steady lap after lap with absolutely no problems.
My question to you is would this same radiator suffice for the 1.5 engine, if i were to build a high compression version.

Thanks,
Neil

Can't see a problem, the turbo guys are using the same radiator without issues and some of them are making twice the hp that a NA 1.5 will ever make.

Thanks! Just was concerned with the lap after lap use.
