    I'm using a CRX 4-core radiator and the stock temp gauge never sees half.

    mine was constantly hot too... in fact it was having a lot of problems with it overheating. we had to install a fan since the one i had wasn't working at all. now it doesn't.

    because of the higher compression in the motor, you'll run hotter anyway. just as long as it's not pegging out all the time.

    my suggestion: get a thermostat that opens at a lower temp, or install a better fan. :)
