Can I add a second pump+radiator to this TT kit?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a TT bigwater 760i ( i know, i know) So I wasn't able to get rid of it and am now trying to improve my temps (currently my load temps are 59,51,54,56 {ambient 24ish} . So heres my idea; can I add a second rad and a second pump?

I don't want to get rid of it because I've already spent the cash. Instead I thought maybe this second pump could just help the flow and also act as a backup in case the first pump failed. If so can you guys recommend a decent pump and rad that comes with 3/8 fittings?
I don't need the bleeding edge but just a solid few components to add to this mediocre kit.

p.s. I think the biggest problem with this kit is the fact that rad is so small (120 mm fan sits on it) doubling or tripling would greatly improve my temps. I think

Save your money and buy a whole new w/c gear like http://www.petrastechshop.com/pecoel.html ... yeah it would cost alot, but it would we worth it, because the TT kit has copper + aluminium, causes galvonic corrosion and basically kills the block.

to answer your question.
yes you can always add a pump and rad.
you could always try to sell the kit and start over (good this time )
but if you don`t want that, just get a nice pump and rad and be happy

Thanks for the replies guys. I'll re-haul this entire setup but it will be a while. I just wish I could do it now since summer is right around the corner.
