That doesn't look enough to me - there's no blanking plate, or long head to top hose pipe...
Is anyone in a rush for this? If not I can supply info when I figure mine out - hopefully October?

I think the cooling circuits are still the same though buddy? Afaik, the only cooling mod on the 2.5 is the redesigned head gasket to balance the flow and they hoped even the temps out a bit better... But I'm not the wizard in that area ;-)

Here's a nutz thread on the subject :handgestures-thumbup: they go fairly in depth.
Yeh i think a standard system is fine for normal use, and even ones used on track that are normally aspirated are generally ok with a bigger rad. i think the extra turbocharger heat starts presenting problems on track over longer stints
