OK first I have searched and searched and without seeing things from 2007 nothing on a way to truly say this is how it's done.
OK i have a 2001 GT
On3 turbo kit
Well the rest doesn't matter for what I'm seeking info on so don't wanna waste people's time lol

Well I want to add a bigger radiator 3row but can't seem to find a easy way to drop the radiator in and fan without bumping against my turbo.
I seen people said to pull the radiator back and your good but clearly they didn't measure because that's about 4 inches of clearance needed. Yes I have my AC system and all but if I have to I don't mind losing it because honestly I don't ever turn it on regardless of the temp outside. Any help is appreciated

For what it’s worth, I have a Mishimoto radiator in my 00 Gt. I don’t know if it’s a 2 or 3 row but it’s about twice as thick as stock so I’m going to guess it’s a 2 row. I don’t know what temp thermostat it has but it rarely gets above 200*. I’m not boosted like you are so your results may vary but I can tell you it works.

Well my concern is the space between the rad fan and turbo. Most say remove the condenser and push it back but it's not just that simple. Mishimoto sent me a 3 row to try out but no space so I'm trying to we if anyone ran into this

If it’s not running hot maybe leave it alone. I don’t think the cooler water temp will translate into cooler air charge temps but maybe??
Not necessarily lookinh for cooler air charger but I can say if it's about 90 and humid I can get up there in temp which bothers me. That's why I am looking to go bigger and more flow. Basically to have my coolant system run efficiently knowing that I creating alot of heat from my setup

What temp does it get up to? As a stop gap you could lower the temp at which the fan comes on if it’s not already lower than stock.

I have them lower in my tune which is fine but I seen Temps around 215 which causes my intake Temps to rise drastically. Hence why I edited the hood to get some of that trapped hot air out while driving

215 is nothing to be concerned about and is normal.

Your intake temps increase because your turbo is sucking in all the heated air that is passing through the radiator. Move the air filter.

If there is a cooling issue here it is more likely a result of there being a very restricted air path out of the radiator/fan. A larger radiator moving things even closer to the engine may very well make things worse.
Agreed hence why I wanna push the radiator away from the turbo. 215 isn't bad but at a stand still it rises. That's my issue. So I wanted to make sure that my cooling was sufficient is all.

If it rises while idling that’s an airflow issue. Either the radiator is plugged or you need a bigger fan.

Agreed. I looked at that 2. I want to drop dual fans in there with a shroud but finding 1 has been a challenge

Hell yeah that's awesome. So my question is.
1) when mounting the radiator did u have to remove the condenser to make room?
2) when using the mishimoto radiator with stock fan did button against the turbos.

My radiator fits in the stock location so does the AC condenser. No mod's required.

My turbo system is all custom made by me so I made it work the way I needed it to. With this said one downpipe hit the plastic cover on the fan motor so I notched the plastic cover so it didn't melt. As close as the DP is to the fan motor the motor hasn't failed....yet.
