Just fyi...it takes a little convincing to fit, due to it's large size. I had to cut off the resonator box on the stock intake to make everything fit.

Be careful what you buy on E-bay. Very few radiators are good on ebay. I paid for what was supposed to be a high fin count, which it wasnt. Also they advertised as 1" wide tubes.. Well yeah.. it had 1 row of 1inch wide tubes, the rest were all 1/2". The fin density was about 1/2 of what a high quality radiator should have. E-bay has really become more like a cheap flee market.

I must say that this thing was one of the best deals ive found on egay. High fin count, great quality, fitment is great and its thicker than the auto rad. Only thing was that my buddy and i had to bend it back into place. It was tweaked a bit but we fixed it with minimal effort. Its NOT that heavy at all imo. Just a little heavier than the stock auto rad i had in the car before. My camera is dead but i promise ill get some pics up. For 160 shipped, there is nothing better. Im sure the price of these id going to go up.

Tanks for trying it out. Pun intended. The added weight will be the extra coolant capacity.

FYI there is an NB version available that has the correct protruding posts for the lower radiator brackets. I just bought one yesterday so I'll report in when it arrives.
