    Your stock cooling system should be good for some serious Hp. What range are you looking at?

    I was just wondering in general...like if you had a heads n cam car or power adder...at what point does it need upgrading. If it doesn't need upgrading then that's great..lol.

    You would have to be making a lot more horsepower than most people make to have to upgrade the stock one.
