Busted Radiator

Pic 1: NEO cover!

As mentioned in my previous posting, I've a problem with my cooling system. I think the N1 Water Pump has a very much higher pressure than the stock unit and as a result, my radiator got busted. Well perhaps old age might also got something to do with it.

Anyway, my radiator developed hairline cracks and water starts to seep out from it especially at higher rpm.
Coolant laced water were splashed everywhere in the engine bay. The car is drivable but I rather not risk running low on water and overheating the engine. Looks like it's time to get a radiator upgrade. :)

  8. Jeff, the N1 Water Pump price is pretty good considering the asking price here in Malaysia. :)
