After 2 weeks of waiting I finally got in my new ebay radiator. It was $120 shipped to my door, which was cheaper then I paid 4 years ago for my first one during the first group buy. Quality wise this one is a hell of a lot better. The welds look better. It has the side brackets already on it so I do not have to reuse my stock ones like my old radiator. The drain plug is also much larger then the old ones. The install was a piece of cake and it fit perfectly.





My cat sitting on my cars roof to make sure I am doing everything correct.


Tonight I am planning on burping the coolant, then upgrading to the beta 24 firmware. Retune idle and VVT pid, then drive the car as my DD for the next week or so. I want to make sure that all the catch cans and such are working correctly.

The auction actually got removed for some reason. I got my radiator so I do not care why it was removed.

For $13 more you can have the *EXCEPTIONAL* CxRacing radiator.

Same thing but with a sticker. Bitches love stickers.

I have one and it's identical to the one Lars installed.

That looks like the same as mine, $186 shipped with the fans and shrouds. Fans seem real nice, move a shitload of air and spin for quite a while once power is removed, but no real world experience yet.

that may be, but it's also $13 more than this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1990-1997-MA...#ht_3634wt_911

which also appears to be the same thing as Lars', just not JDM

it doesn't. the above link doesn't have the extra side pieces that allow you to just drop it in...you have to remove them from your rad first. Therefor I've concluded that this is not the same rad Lars got, but the CX one is.
