subaru cooling systems are rather robust IMO.

If you had a turbo'd vehicle it might be worthwhile....but just for a n/a setup.....nahh.

I've seen turbo'd 2.5RS's making 50% more power than stock run open track days with the stock radiator and no cooling problems whatsoever. Subaru's cooling systems are very stout.

No. Cooling the water temp more than necessary can actually cause problems in the engine. Much like cooing oil that doens't need to be cooled. Luckily cars have thermostats to solve the water temperature problem, so unless you are opperating hot, there is no point.
