your planning to run a UDP (slows the water pump down), get rid of half of your heat exchanger, and run boost? You could get it to fit, but I dont think its a good idea IMO. Is the S/c touching the radiator or something?

atleast run your water pump at normal speed... aka no UDP. Increaseing the heat inside of the engine and cutting down your cooling by half (radiator and slowing the pump) does seem like a bad idea. I have, however, seen people run turbos with half radiators.

Try and find a better performing radiator and a better fan setup. That may help make up for the lost surface area. That and changing the coolant/water mix is also a good idea. Maybe adding some additives to help the heat transfer, like water wetter etc.

thanks for your advice problem is right now i do not have my factory crank pully anymore and now i'm running with UDP i guess my best luck would be finding good half size rad and good fan combo.. i need that space so bad.. which is where A/C fan is ...

3 row may work but stay away from the LC half radiator. My beta swapped lc is is using the half radiator, it can and does get to hot just using the a/c in the really hot summer days.
