Radiator Releif product

suposedly provides better heat transfer from metal to the coolant. You add it to your favorite coolant.


What do ya'll think. My Mog wants to overheat on long sharp upgrades so I need something. Not any room to add an aux. fan on the radioator though I may add one to the oil cooler.

What do you mean by "overheats on long upgrades"?

Any engine will get hotter going up a grade because its burning more fuel. If it doesn't boil, its not too hot.

This ideal of keeping an engine "cool" is a myth. An engine is supposed to run hot, that's why it has a thermostst in it. An engine can be "cool" at 250*F as long as the coolant isn't boiling. Look where the red mark on your temp gage is.

Whether the product you referenced works, I don't know. Why don't you give it a scientific test and let us know.
