Did you update your install with heavy duty radiators?? Anyone will tell you that adding a turbo will increase engine heat and that heat has to be removed somehow, thus upgrading your radiators is mandatory. You can add some "water wetter" to your coolant or mix the coolant to 70 percent, but that's just a stop-gap fix.

If you install a S type front bumper you can add a third radiator.
