I would service the cooling system - thermostat, hoses, flush and new coolant.

It's a modified car so really hard to find someone who wants to work on it, lol.

Hi, What type of mods? and has this been a problem for a while, or did it just start?

It's been happening for a while, mods include, bigger cams, bigger turbo and air intercooler, new rebuilt top end. Intercooler radiator is at the front of the car in front of the regular radiator, should these two be switched around?
