Default Which radiators can i use?

Hi,

my problem is not very simple but i will resume it.
i have a BP4W engine in my NA6 from 1993
i am trying to do the begi reroute and install my JR CAI but i cant install the CAI because there is no sufficient gap between the TB tube and the radiator hose... now i have to change the radiator... anyone with the same problem?
wich radiators can i use?

No we don't have the same problem. You know why? Cause we don't use faggy intakes on faggy non boosted cars

In all seriousness though: all replacement or upgrade radiators will have the tube inlet/outlet in the same place so unless you go custom you're s.o.l.

Just go turbo and forget that CAI ------ry

But it can illustrate the problem.... has you can see they almost touch there... in my case because i have the BP4W and i have a FM throttle body adaptor itīs a direct hit.... and seems the better choice, changing the radiator... any ideaS?

Here's an idea: that CAI crap doesn't do jack squat for your car. Either put the stock one back on or if you want power go turbo.

Sell it to a ***-a-douche honduh buddy. I really don't believe that your talking about changing radiators for an intake. Buy a megasquirt and remove the maf. Buy itb's Slam your car and put 15x12's with 12*neg camber.

Make some new mounts, put a honda civic half rad in, get creative with your coolant routing, install your cold air intake.


Realize it wasn't worth the effort, sell it all, get turbo.

Seriously though the Honda rad should work. You'll want a really good fan on it, probably shrouded. They mount on the top and bottom, but I would think making the mounts would be easy. Two prongs on bottom, one on top.

2111109, 2111112, 2111115 will all fit in the stock location- just need to fab up something to hang it.

or non oil cooler: 2111107, 2111110, 2111113
