Re: what radiator are u turbo scirocco 2 guys using? (scir260)

hmmm..
what are your water temps. Why do you think the the roc 2 radiator can't cool enough. is your turbo water and oil cooled or just oil cooled. Do you have an oil cooler
I'm actually a big fan of the roc 2 radiator except for the upper hose design http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

im running a radiator out of an 87 gti in my 85 rocco. i had to lenghten the top hose about 4". but the lower hose out of an a2 will bolt right on.

From what i hear its not an issue and the radiator without an expansion tank has been proven to work.

I am running the stock radiator with no problems so far. I still have A/C and a Massive front mount intercooler. I have had zero problems so far. I did run a little hot in stop and go traffic with the a/c on last summer, but nothing bad. I am putting a euro GTI oil cooler which should help shed heat for this summer.

why not try replacing the Fan to one of the high air flow ones im getting a custom rad made for my rocco because my Eaton takes up alot of room

is your Rad dirty ? i have seen that play a big part in high temps

Just curious are you running a single fan? If so swapping to a dual fan should help significantly. I have one for sale out of a '90 Corrado if interested, just PM me an offer.

i have run scirocco 16v rads. my friend has run g-60 rads--both of us have not had a problem.
fan wise, i have had the single fan on my car, and never ran hot. sits at about 1/2 all the time. I am planing to switch to the dual fan setup found on passats as it will cool more, and be "thinner".

Can anyone else add any validation to this statement. I've heard the exact opposite.

I use the old non expansion tank radiator, it works fine.

Re: what radiator are u turbo scirocco 2 guys using? (BUNNYLOVE)

I use an old rocco non expansion tank radiator on my juiced 16v and never had an issue w/ cooling. Just look at honda guys using 1 1/2" thick radiators that are half the size of ours on boosted b18's w/o issues. VW's have overkill radiator systems just like our motors. Owning a dub is a blessing sometimes...until something breaks
