I put a BIG Koyo Radiator in & STILL had the same problem.

Then I changed the Crucial Racing thermostat in my car for a stocker & problem was Solved.

Now HW cruise @ over 50 mph will have coolant temps in the 120* range which is not good - so I have to put a piece of cardboard over the radiator ice road trucker style to keep coolant temps up.
What temp Crucial did you use?
