Is anybody on here using the MPI type front mounted radiator on their boosted Mini ?
Iím looking at options and have one sat here doing nothing, it looks a little on the small side and I could go with the Cinquecento if the MPI one will be inadequate circa 200hp. Thoughts/experiences?

I ran an MPI rad and it was a bit marginal in traffic on a hot day. This was a normally aspirated 1380. I've opted for a cinq one for the 16v build just for that extra margin of safety. Much more restricted on space though incorperating intercoolers etc mind.

Cheers. I pretty much knew what the answer would be but just wanted to confirm it.

I found the standard fiat one wasnít enough on mine on Trackdays. Gone to an alloy fiat one.

Phil, i'm using an alloy MPI rad on mine. No issues in traffic, fan cuts in and out nicely. I only see the high side of the black line when doing 120mph..

Yea no issue at all, stays cool on track in 30 degree heat. Only trouble I have is in traffic in hot days, could do with a bigger fan or an extra one.
