    Hi guys as tittle says I have an s14a with a 1jz gte vvti engine
    I have got a koyo ally rad made for a s14a/sr20
    Twin mishimoto electric fans
    Brand new Toyota water pump
    New thermostat

    Any idea as to why it keeps overheating?
    It only overheats on idle really.
    Anything I can buy to help keep temps down?

    Sounds like the coolant system needs a good bleed

    Sounds like airlock,

    Jack the front of the car high as you can ( or until radiator sits higher than the engine), run the engine and keep topping up the radiator with coolant.

    This should help bleeding it.
