If your stock cooling system is running right, you should just stick with that. With a higher pressure cap, if you still have something old in there, it will bust.

Why were you thinking about gettint a higher pressure cap?

Yes it can help if your system can handle the extra presure means lower boling point great if you have no heater core or bypass pipes running a nice strong alloy radiator

Increasing your cooling system pressure by installing a radiator cap that has a pressure rating higher than factory specs increases stress on the entire system. Although some race cars use high pressure caps, their cooling systems are built to handle these higher pressures (All-Aluminum brazed and welded radiators, steel braided hoses, no heater core, high performance water pump, high performance gaskets, etc). We offer high pressure caps because some cars are designed with high pressure cooling systems. We recommend that you only use a cap with the pressure rating that your car was designed for.
