Unhappy Overheat problems

Here's the deal,

I'm driving around town and the water temp (on factory gauge in the cluster) goes WAY high. Like red line high. In order lower down the temp, I tried turning the heater on with temp set to the warmest position. All this made things even worst ! I turned the dial back to the coolest and even if the water temp stayed above normal, it seemed to help to cool things off.

- Coolant level is O.K.
- Outside temperature was 1 degre F...

Can anyone help ?

This was my first drive after installing a VF30 (still stock engine management and no outside boost controler). I was wondering if maybe the lower coolant hose on the turbo (the one that loops over the turbo bracket) might have been pushed too far and is now kinked, hence slowing the coolant flow.

Any imput would be appreciated.

Thanks

Probably gotta burp the system, seems like you have some air in your hoses after installing the turbo.
