Default Radiator question

Well...Im about to buy a radiator and some fans because it appears mine are shot.

Car will be boosted soon, so any recommendations or is stock just fine for now?

I dont wanna re buy stuff if i can avoid it.

People have been buying all alum 1" cores off coolradiator.com and tracking their car with success supposedly. Some people are also using the ebay aluminum radiators as well.
There was a thread about this like 2 days ago, do a search and you will be flogged with information.

Edited link for coolradiator.com

I just bought this one http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...164773005&rd=1 I'll update ya when I get it. As far as fans I would just get stock replacements and wire them up parallel, they flow plenty of air.

I've heard from a few Nissan owners that the HASTE radiators are really good for the price... of course, not the one listed on their website but the one that can be found on eBay...

I got my Koyo from Page3racing on eBay. If you don't find the application on their eBay store just e-mail them and they'll get it for you.

Whatever rad you get, make sure you close any gaps between the fans and the radiator. If you can make or buy a fan shroud, even better.

I got a great deal on the huge thick **** coolrad radiator. Its a beast, fit with a little cussing. I think I paid like $150 for it on ebay brand new when they were clearancing

Default Thanks for the replies

Yeah..my fears of the amount are concerned. I guess if you want a good one your gonna pay for it - about 300 bones.


However, that Godspeed one on ebay is interesting...wish we had more info on it.

And no I dont work for them or am I trying to promote it. I just wish I knew more about the quality.

When you get it, could you take pictures of the sides? particularly the mounting tabs? It looks like it bolts on. I partially removed my core support, so I can't use the original mounting points. In the pictures it looks like you take the original side mount and bolt it on.
