Default Stephanie's New Radiator

Corky has been at it again....

My radiator started barfing coolant and needed to be replaced. Apparently it has some blockage... So Corky made princess a new radiator, unlike anything anyone else has. I think it is pretty snazzy.

Hey that pretty cool, looks thick, and wider than stock (?).
I also like the filler neck off on the side as well

So where the endtanks normally are you've got more fins...very cool.

Simple...and effective. Probably hard to make though.

Prices coming soon? (like I could afford it...)

Awaiting response...I have seen cross flow miata radiators before on the internet-world but it's still pretty cool, I don't know what else looks unique with it...hmmm.

Maybe it's the bestest radiator because they say so like the medusa fuel rail setup hehehe. (sorry, I'll stop picking on you steph!)

This is not the first of its kind. There's a spec miata crossflow radiator that has been available for quite a while.

I have a double pass cross flow double core PRC in my Miata.


The single and triple pass have the inlet on the pax/intake side. Or am I missing something in "unlike"?

Here I thought I was special... Oh well....

Actually, Corky said it was very easy to make. Depending upon how testing goes, we might start producing them. It is unique in that not many people in Miata world-dom use this type of cross flow radiator. It is the same radiator design they use on higher hp cars, so I am told. We also decided to make it, as opposed to getting a Koyo, because it was cheaper.

I want to see a big double pass, with a large oil cooler section built in that takes -10 lines.

However, it seems like my "coolradiator.com" rad is so perfect that I'm scared to replace it. I have it ducted properly and I've never had to turn the fan on at the racetrack, and I have a stock hood. If we could get an oil cooler the size of the rx7-cooler, with the big fittings, and a massively thick radiator, with ducting...you'd get more of my precious ching-dow.

That still won't keep a track beast cool.... Even if it doesn't have a turbo.
So what advantage does this have again?

No real specific advantage. It will cool about 12-15% more. It is just not standard.

May be a noob question, but what engine did that type of valve cover come from?
