I think that was part the problem. Swapped radcap and took coolant from the overflow to top the rad up incase it was overfull. I just wonder why occasionally I open it and it's below the fins.

Ok got my bc coilovers installed. With the front strut tops I turned them 90' so it adjust camber and caster. Is there any reason this would be bad? Just wanna know before I drive it much?

Nope, its good.
Set em to full camber/caster, then go get a proper wheel align.

And I'm being paranoid but full caster is leaning towards the rear of the car right?

Ok so running toe Out on the front may have been a bad idea as I have scrubbed the out side shoulder of both fronts..... Bugger waste of $300 in tires.
On another note I put my gopher rad in and it doesn't fit. It sits to high I has to put 10mm spacers under the front mounts and slot the bolt holes.
Also I had to enlarge the fan shroud holes. It's in and almost perfect accept fan shroud isn't sealed to the radiator there is like a 5mm gap in places. And the bonnet stay doesn't fit as the upper radiator mounts sit 10mm to high and I won't sit.
Gonna dig through and check that I'm not running 205 upper mounts as I know their different. Other wise gonna have to cut and weld sone brackets to suit.
Any one have any input?
The gopher rad was ment for a manual 182-184 but the seller said it was the same and it seems it but I still worry.
Cools well but found a patch of coolant under the block twice outta 5 trips so I don't get why it's intermittent.....??

got pictures? I know that I will have to cut the bottom radiator bush on one side to lower it into position.

I can take photos just not today as its raining. I didn't think cutong the lower mounts was a good idea as metal on metal contract and vibration would break the mounts of the radiator?

Wow long time since update.
So what's changed... Broke clutch pedal last November so decided it was time for a haltech ps1000 standalone ecu..... Makes sense right?
So spent this year piece ing it together and a summary is:
Gen 3 3sgte
Haltech ps1000 with fuel pressure oil pressure oil temp and boost control
Gtx2867 turbo 3" exhaust
Pwr fmic
Rc front bar and bonnet.
Turbosmart fpr
Hks ssqv
Haltech racepak dash
Xiii Motorsport mounts needed to be modified to fit.
Solid brass shift bushings

Ok so cars running again. It's running a base tune from a st185 so is rich and conservative but has enabled me to check for teeth issues and I've found a few.
Ps steering lines are leaking. I can't get a spanner on it to tighten it so will drain the fluid and use a socket to nip it or up or get a different fiting as currently it's a washer seal and I've got a feeling the rack should be inverted flare. Not a big deal.
No boost spiking in 4th at 6.5k rpm so that's promising.

Major concern at the moment is the radiator fan. I mounted a 12" Davies Craig fan and at idle it is on more than it is off. And given it's warm but not hot weather at the moment I think I need another fan for the car to survive summer. Looks to be enough room so surely two 12" pullers will be ok.
When moving but water and air temps are fine so it's just a matter of fans
Hopefully a tune in the new year. Car has taken a back seat to a few family issues and other life expenses but once it's done it will be very fun. Not long now

That's just toyotas way of dealing with high boost on a stock ecu= dump fuel lol.
It's mega rich with the haltech because it not actually tuned it's just a safe map to move the car around
