S54 swap cooling problems

Hello, fellas. I have a problem with the cooling of my Е30 which has an engine with S54 B 32 and air conditioning. I use a water radiator from the E 30 324 TD, I put a 16 inch cooling fan in front, but the car overheat in urban and extra-urban driving. I replaced a water pump and a thermostat, I mounted a small electric water pump But the situation is the same. Please share how you handle the cooling of this engine. Thank you

How does that compare to the Z3M radiator?

It doesn’t. He needs a better fan and a better radiator.

Well there you go.

An E46 M3 can idle in a parking lot in 100 degree ambient temps without overheating. Belt driven fan FTMFW.
