    Tex when you put your second rad up top did you have to do anything to the bottom rad or rad cap?

    Nope cause the top rad has a psi cap.

    I just looped the lines in series and tee'ed the over flow line into the other over flow.

    Works 100%

    Was going to install a bypass setup just incase one gets a hole but then u can just hook the lines up to the good rad.

    Re: 2009 750i bruteforce overheating issues

    Does anyone have a suggestion on where to get the 2nd rad kit? and what kind of price will I be looking at? I looked on the highlifter site and all I could find was a relocation kit for the original rad.

    Tex, isn't it hard on your water pump to circulate coolant through two rads? ...besides is it really necessary to run two rads if your engine is not hevily modded (BBK, stroker, cam, port, etc.)?

    Y would it be hard on the pump ???
    Been on there for 3000 plus hard km. Stock pump and all.

    If the bottom rad is pluged up its still getting some heat out. Just the extra coolant capacity alone makes a difference.

    Also a cooler engine works better and has cooler oil too ( which is a built in coolant )

    Yup, extra coolant and additional distance since each foot of hose adds additional stress to the pump. I never really gave it a second thought until KBrunlees was speculating that might have been the cause of the pump fialure in his Canned-Ham. ...not saying anything, just asking the question.

    Huh.

    It's a kawi not a can ham tho

    Keith brute is the same way and has a 880 bigbore. Said his pump looked 100 %

    Dunno guys top rad gets hot fairly fast.

    And there is 1 to 1.5 feet of hose added so don't think that has a bearing on it
