Default cooling woes

So i was losing coolant, when i began investigating i found that it was coming form the upper radiator hose. I started to pull off the hose and when i did a piece of the radiator came off with it. So im in the market for a new radiator. Any suggestions? This is the cheapest i could find:

Nope. I've got an OEM automatic rad in my basement, plastic tanks and metal core ... made by Koyo. There are aftermarket all brass units.

The rad pictured looks like the OEM replacement.

I'm kinda in the same boat - car is overheating with turbo in NC summer weather (I can turn the A/C off and I'm fine but at 96 deg and 80% humidity that kinda sucks). I was shopping around for somthing with better cooling than OE and found http://www.trackdogracing.com/website/cooling.htm their Koyo is the race unit all alluminum and seems to be the best price on the koyo. Of course you can pick up a used OE for ~50 from any junkyard or planetmiata if that will suit your needs.
