need some opinions!

ok so i just ordered a mishimoto aluminum radiator and mugen racing thermostat from password jdm. I want to essientialy do a complete overhaul /upgrade of the cooling system. on that note has anyone found an actual radiator hose kit for our cars or are some of the universals worth while? Also what is a good water pump or upgraded water pump? i replaced it about a year ago but i think it might be leaking so im going to return it and get a new one. any advice?


i also kinda wanna know if anyone has used the royal purple hps oil and filter yet? and/or the purple ice radiator additive they make.

Re: need some opinions!

Check for leaks first. If the leak is the radiator replace it. Factory piping is adequate, the waterpump factory is adequate.

If you wanted a change, look into electric pumps to free up some hp. You could also get a permacool electric fan kit for the radiator, and that would keep the temps stable.

Royal purple works best after a system flush. Oil and filter are overkill for day to day usage, and expensive. Mobil 1 can't be messed with IMO,

Re: need some opinions!

well i did check for leaks. the only problem is i just removed my ac/ and most of the ac lines so ithink alot of what i am seeing is freon leaking. i used the uv light and glasses from work and its glowing pretty bad so i dont think its coolant.

i was thinking silicone hoses for more of a "showy" look and just another thing to get points at shows but cant seem to find ones for 4th gens. is the measurements for a 5th gen tht different? and thanks for the info about the water pump

and purple power hps is nline for like 8$ a quart which is the same ive been paying for castrol syntec and it breaks down way to fast. and i have been using a k&n oil filter which is about 12 and the new royal purple ones are only like 16

royal purple is horrible for oil IMO. I use mobile 1, usually half a quart to a quart between changes is burned off. the first week I switched to royal puple, I burned about 2 quarts

Re: need some opinions!

You should have had the freon removed properly vs just ripping everything out... just saying, it's not healthy to inhale that ****....


As sideswipe said - stock waterpump and hoses will work fine. Mizu or Mishimoto (same damn thing) fans will help, i know mine kick much harder than stock fans.
