isnt it just a normal rad cap with a trd sticker?

I thought the uprated rad caps help have a quicker boiling point for the water coolant inside the rad, making the car reach normal operating temp. quicker?

Matt, I'm sure I read that somewhere before !?

the thermostats open sooner to allow the engine to run hotter sooner(get upto temp), then the uprated rad caps allow the boiling point to be raised before pressure is released, thats why it is wise to ensure you have a good functioning cooling system before fitting the uprated rad caps

going a bit :offtopic: but staying with eBay and trd parts (as being relativly new to jap tuning) is £20 cheap/expensive for an TRD oil filter

is there anywhere in the uk where I can by trd, tte parts from

like: rad cap, oil cap, fuel cap, oil filters, stickers ect, just little touches

as it can be quite hard to distinguished between real and fakes

I might sound stupid but what is the purpose of this cap then . does it give better perforance etc. :unsure:

I think the Q has already been answered:

The higher pressure allows the thermostat to open earlier as the optimum operating temperature is achieved sooner. Therefore greater efficiency and improved performance.

The downside is, that with a poorly maintained cooling system will be more prone to leaking.

to be honest, i highly dount the stuff on eBay is real trd

if you want real TRD stuff, the TRDUSA stuff can be got from Fensport

engine stuff as i have alreadu pointed out i can get.

just a point though, TRD USA is not part of Toyota its a franchise, and so the "bling" stuff is normally made by TRD USA, the real tuning stuff, cams, pistons etc is made by TRD Japan, which is the tuning side of TOYOTA
