Ive always ran a 31" radiator, with 1 to 1 pulleys and 15 fan and a stock water pump, on a 9 to 1 gas engine. I would like to save some weight, would a 22 inch 2 core radiator with 17" fan cool, and possibly a good high flowing racing water pump?

we switched from a 31 to a 27.5 last year and didnt run any hotter. i have a friend who runs a 22" but he also has no nose piece and has alot of airflow to the rad/motor. he also runs 12 to 1 motors. with only 9 to 1 compression you'd be safe going down that small with a GOOD pump (stewart, moroso ect.)

I've been running a 22" for 2 years now. 9:1 gas, stock pump, 17" fan, good shroud, 190*, works good.
