Default Heat while on boost with ESS 575 kit

Hello, I just got a ESS 575 kit on my car and when driving spiritedly the coolant temp started creeping to the 2nd dot. Before it got to crazy I let off the gas and temp went back down after a bit. Oil temp was pretty good sitting in the middle. Currently I am running a Mishimoto radiator, SPAL fan, Motorsport thermostat, new coolant, ESS intercooler, and CSF oil cooler.

Granted it was 84 degrees and I was running the AC at the time. I am wondering a few things, especially folks who have the same kit. Does your temp generally stop at the 2nd dot? Or are you normally running dead middle?

I am thinking of just going all out and getting the Zionsville competition radiator to cool things off. Anybody have any thoughts on whether that will help alleviate the problem? Any other suggestions to deal with the temp creep?

Thanks!

You might have not bled your coolant properly and or your thermostat is not functioning properly. Also verify your ac fan is working properly and the spal fan is also working properly.

Hmmm...I will rebleed for sure. Thermostat is about 2 weeks old so I figure that is good. But I do like the idea of checking out the AC fan. Thanks for the ideas!
