    The fans look a bit dangerous .
    I think a guard to stop any dopy bastard sticking his fingers in there
    a CX turbo motor as well would make it worth it

    Why bother that skinny radiator for CX2.0 wont be an improvement. My original DS23 radiator for Aussie with thermo fan works fine.

    I think all the later cars had that alloy radiator with plastic tanks.... Actually I don't think it's as well done as the turbo one. It was really nicely sealed up into the nose an an angle from memory. This is still a better setup than standard with the two big fans though. Who needs a spare tire after all

    Default Works well

    I converted mine a couple of years ago, its a bit of work, you have to cut the cross member out to get it low enough. I put an electric water pump in too. I reckon its got about 10% more power (old ID19B engine) and its a lot quieter (no fan). I also vented the front guards and removed the number plate panel. One electric fan is connected to the thermostat in the radiator and the other is to the EWP. I would only recommend it in a play car, keeping it original will retain the best value.
