Koyo makes a damn fine radiator. Never hurts to have your car run cooler. Especially if you plan on building your engine

koyo is def a great company with great products, the only thing i don't like is the fact that they use flimsy plastic drain plugs. they should be metal with a rubber 0-ring.

I highly doubt they have 00-03 celica radiators in STOCK. What aftermarket companies often do is list products such as these radiators but more often than not, they are still in development or they are still on the drawing board.

I would consider getting one only if I had lots of miles on my car, or If I drove very hard.

It'd be a good mod, never hurts to have better cooling, especially for drag racing where cars really dont have much time to cool as the race is so quick.

for Intake: yes

colder radiator means that it cools the engine as a whole better, reducing wear and increasing longevity. It can also handle higher temperatures that can come with turbos, etc.

It would be awesome for AutoX. I blew a t-hose that ended up costing me $300 because of my shady Toyota dealer. *cough* Cocksuckers. *cough*

If I would have had better cooling it might not have happened. thumbsup

well if you are not overheating then it would be a waste of money. It is not visible, the celi doesnt have heating problem.
It would not hurt for sure, just why if its not necessary. wink
