I recently put a VW Scirrocco radiator in my Turner 950S. I have run these in my Alfa race car for a couple years and I had a spare in the shop already. With good air it should handle 150+hp race engines.

The radiator is larger than you list. It has significantly greater surface area than the stock one it replaced in my car. Also they are very efficient as they are full alloy, single row, w/plastic side tanks.

It was easy to mount. Bought on ebay brand new OEM Behr brand for less than $100. Had recepticle for a factory screw in 200 degree heat switch ($18) that now runs an electric fan. It did require the addition of a remote fill/pressure tank.

I could probably find time to post some pics of the radiator in the car if needed.

: The radiator that came with 30/206 just isn't doing it. I have had it boiled out. I have a new engine. I have an electric fan. I have a higher pressure radiator cap. And, it still gets too hot, ultimately boiling off water.

: I really need to install a new radiator.

: Any suggestions on what "off-the-shelf" radiator would fit? Someone once said VW Scirocco. But, at 22.5" x 11.75" that is actually smaller than the available space - 24" x 15".

: Short of a custom racing radiator, what have any of you used in your racing Turners?

: Thanks.
