If it randomly overheats then you could blame the thermostat. If it overheats when you're sitting at 6,000+RPM for a period of time then there's nothing wrong with the thermostat... What time frame are you talking about doing a burnout for? A decent one or just a little bit of a skid to warm up the tyres at the drags?

Hey white_lie Im talking about a decent burnout, it starts playing up around the 30 second mark, everything on my dash starts coming on, so i have to stop. Also the water starts to come out of the tank, what do you think? Thanks.

If this is a street car and street activity, you deserve all you get. If its a track car you'll be spending a lot of money to improve the radiator and under-bonnet airflow.
The car was not designed for hooning.

More than 30 seconds? Of course its going to overheat. The cooling system isn't designed for that kind of abuse...
You will also cook your power steering fluid and probably lose your steering. Not to mention the stress on the engine and drivetrain.

ls1's had trouble with heat standard. let alone modifying them and then trying to cook the engine completely.
i have a vt series 2 (gen 3) and the fan is roaring away trying to cool the car down sitting in the maccas drive through....
