Order a Koyo radiator today.

I got it off the classifieds section and it is going for 350 shipped. I know that our car has like amazing cooling to begin with, but I ordered on because awhile back a piece of wood fell off a truck and decided to dent my radiator. So, when I get it and put it on I will let everyone know what I think of it.

the radiator itself is full aluminum but the drain plug is cheap plastic. I've seen one break from the heat on a 240 sx at a track day once. the poor guy had to leave only after 4 laps. he leaked about 1/4 of his coolant, from his $330 radiator

you should tell them that before they send it tell em you want a more competant cap on it, see what they say-otherwise i heard c2 gas makes a nice one but a little more expensive
