San Antonio, 

I have an ’83 944 that I’ve had since it was a year old. I do most of my own work on it. I replaced the original radiator and water pump with upgraded OE parts year ago. I live in San Antonio and the cooling system cannot keep up with the Texas heat when I’m in heavy urban traffic and I can’t use the AC for more that few minutes unless I’m at highway speeds. I often must turn the heater on full blast to keep the engine from overheating, especially in stop-and-go traffic (this is not new phenomenon).

I’m wondering if there are any cooling system mods/upgrades, such as a racing radiator, that I can do so it’s not so miserable to drive in the Texas summer?
