    I would double check to make sure you don't have any air in your cooling system....thats what it sounds like to me.

    *edit* I think this because my b16 never gets the temp gauge above 1/2 and I'm using a stock CRX HF radiator.

    Maybe your thermostat is shot?

    how do i check for air, i ran it without the cap on till it was hot to bubble off the excess, is there another trick to it??? i replaced the t-stat also but like i mentioned it isnt overheating it stays at a constant temp of hot about 3/4 the way up the temp gauge

    I know this is what a manual would say "have you checked to see if the fans are plugged in?" When I changed out mine for an Si radiator, i forgot to plug in one of the fans, but that really didnt affect much considering it was the second fan that almost never comes on.
