I've just bought an imported twin turbo and I'm having a few problems with getting the heating system working at a higher temperature. There's an induction kit on it and I've changed the anti-freeze and fitted a higher temperature themostat. It was working fine after that for about 100 miles and then it started blowing cold air again. Has anyone got any ideas, or can offer any help about what else I should do/try next?? Thanks!

have you got air in the system? try burping it... start car, take to a steep hill, turn off, have radiator at highest point, take radiator cap off (make sure it's not hot etc), turn it back on, turn heater on full blat on hot, start topping up the radiator till it stops bringing bubbles up, cap her off and see how the heater is then

also the heater unit... theres something you can remove, like a little leg, i think it's clipped into the side, they go faulty occasionally so unclip it and see if the heater works then...
sorry that last one may be a bit of fun to figure out lol.. best i could explain at the mo.. maybe someone else can explain that one better
