Removed the OE Radiator

Nov 2, 2010 update on MacLotus's 1999 Lotus Elise Sport 190 (Series 1)

Because the Acura TSX engine operates at higher coolant pressure, it is recommended that it be replaced.

It seems the OE Lotus radiator has some plastic end caps that may pop off if over-pressurized, causing loss of vital engine coolant (not to mention dumping it all over the race track).

I removed the front clam shell to gain access to the front mounted radiator, and disconnected the existing radiator.
