Default MRT Radiator for WRX

I Live in Sacramento and there have been many days where the temperature gets in the 90's and the 100's in the summer. I do not have any power mods. I noticed that during those hot days the car is straining to accerate is bogged down by heat.
I installed the MRT radiator that I bought from Vivid racing. The thickness of the cooling area (core) of the radiator is substantially larger. It is advertised to as having a 40% larger or more capacity. I tested it out and it seemed to pull more Hp's in this 90+ degree weather. How much I cant say but it was noticable. I liked the idea behind cooler operating temps. I see it as a nice to your Car mod. I mean it can air conditon syou.. Why not give it a break as well.

I could be totally wrong here, but maybe the computer was pulling timing? I know my civic loses at least a second in the 1/4 when its hot and humid outside. If it worked for you though, congrats...

It's a nice piece of hardware. Strikingly similar to the PWR; even having a PWRxxx number stamped on it.
