No sir,this is not for school work, the reports consists of basic information and calculation of the radiator, these reports are submitted to the committee of judges of the student formula ,in which im takin part in.

The main downside I see is that a too large radiator might prevent the coolant getting to the proper temperature range for the engine. Also, if the radiator is larger than really needed, it could take up space that might be better used for some other component.

Also please help with calculations and reports.
We will help you do the calculations, but we won't do them for you -- that's not our job.
