    s2000 vs zetec cooling?

    s2000 vs zetec cooling?
    just starting to look at the cooling side of things on the estate, im wondering...will the same radiator setup as i was running before keep the s2000 cool..?

    it doesnt run a heater of any sorts, and used to be zetec powered with a polo rad, and 12" fan, and kept cool, and worked fine for 1000's of miles, its less fab work if i can run this setup...basically, i know the s2000 motors are silly efiiciant on the cooling side of things, but what are peopls thoughts?

    Cant remember what Rad Neil used in the S2000 he built, but at trigs trackday i think its stayed at about 60-70 degrees all day. Might be worth asking him?

    I would use your current setup and see how that works out. My 4age is excellent when it comes to cooling so are b series and k series hondas too. The f20c will only be a improvement due to being a newer engine and better design. If you look at when these engines are in their orginal shells, the jap manufacturers use really small radiators and they manage fine even when theres a power increase.
