How to install properly radiator for 13B?

I'm putting a 13B rotary engine into my buggy and I started to wonder what is the correct placement for radiator.

Should the highest point of radiator be above or below the level that the radiator cap in engine is located?

I'm asking this because at moment it looks like the radiator will be located above the radiator cap level and I'm worried that this could lead to some kind of cooling problems.

its a bit late, but for proper cooling system operation, the filler point should be at the highest point in the system, and any other high points that may cause an air pocket should have bleeds fitted to them, to let the air out when filling the system.

some cars use a blank cap for filling (I think late RX-7s do) with the pressure cap and recovery bottle at the highest point. other use bleeds similar to brake bleeders at high points, still others run a header tank with small hoses from all the high points to let the air rise, and have a pressure cap fitted to the header tank.

for best results, use a recovery system with the cap at the highest of the high points.
