The radiator comes with a 1.3 bar or 19 psi high pressure cap. The stock radiator cap is rated at 0.9 bar. By increasing the cap pressure the boiling point of the coolant is increased to around 268 degrees or 56 degrees higher than the normal boiling point of water. Internal boiling reduces cooling efficiency by hampering heat transfer so raising the boiling point is a good thing.
To install the Vortech kit we first had to remove the radiator. The fit of everything is super tight near the front of the car and removing all of this stuff makes the kit installation much simpler.
Next the belly pan and front fascia were removed.
Now we have full access to the front of the engine.
The blower mounting bracket and intermediate shaft were pre assembled.
Next the bracket was installed on the front of the engine using existing bolt holes with new bolts. The new front drive belt was installed and tensioned.
