I reckon the temp gauge going to 3/4 on a long climb is fine - as long as it stays out of the red, I wouldn't be too worried just yet. That whole white zone is the "normal" range if you look in the owners manual. You have to expect it to heat up a bit as it is really working when climbing a hill, as in max fuel, lower revs and basically developing maximum heat in the cylinders. If you want it to stay in the middle and not budge at all, you'd have to fit a really. really big radiator (which you could considering you are gunna turbo it).

As a few suggested, check the actual temp with a VDO gauge or some mechanical one. My 2H goes to 90 - 95 if I really work it up a hill with a load on.

The od 2H is a good motor for low speed and off road, but was never meant to be a freeway flyer, and they will get a bit warm if you try and work it like one.

Yeah one day mate, maybe when the prices come down :lol:

In the meantime, how about just an exhaust manifold?
