Bigger radiator on a 4.6

I posted it on dweb, as this is for a D2, but no way I miss the good advices of d-90 board members.
I need to improve my cooling on a 04 D2, hot weather all year long, a lot of city driving, A/C on all the time.
The most effective mod seems to be a bigger radiator.
Any advice, feedback, ideas is welcome.

Cheers

I have a 4-core radiator with electric fans on my 4.6 D90 which sees really slow trail driving at time. Works the charm for me. I had my original radiator recored for this.

Not sure how the D2 radiator stacks up, though--it may already be a high-performance type. Does the 04 run electric fans? If not, I would certainly consider that before I did anything else...

Viscous clutch fan, which by the way pull really well.
I don't think the stock radiator is a high performance type,
seems pretty thin to me.

Found something about relocating thermostat from bottom to to on Dweb.
It's called the inline mod. Anyone familiar with this ?
