yep. ideally you want a better radiator, maybe some ducting. a little temp rise is ok on the street, but if you're racing the thing, you wanna minimise it, and prolly lower the water temp to the high 70's

I think he's referring to something to direct air to the rad better now that you have an FMIC.... do you have a radiator panel that goes around the hood latch area? All of these things will help.. what CFM is the fan ur using? A Koyo unit, radiator deflector/panel, high cfm efan and the right mix of coolant should be all you need to be good on the street...
