    Cooling system

    Hey Fellas

    Just wondering on my 98 ls1 formy A4 (or our cars) how is the factory cooling system limitations (while still running stock stat,auto fans, shroud etc.) when does it tax the system? horsepower wise? I'm building mine slowly how long can i keep using the factory stuff before the inevitable happens!? that slow needle rise to the red without it never coming back down! my example would be = (while runnin a/c its 90-120 ish out in Vegas while stop an go on the blvd) also helpful what CFM do the dual fans have? I guess i love vegas cruises alot and according to slp i have atleast the "350 PerformancePac" or better, any help thanks in advance!

    i am running patriot stage 2.5 (port polished too the limits) 224/226 566/568 112 cam and still using stock T-stat runs great. unless you are seriously modding the hell out of it you are fine with the factory...i am not a fan of the 160 stat..personal preference though.
