The radiator fits in an NB width wise but the filler neck is too tall. The only way to get the hood to close is to modify your lower radiator brackets so the radiator sits lower or cut a hole in the bracing of your hood. I suggest the first option.

Ok, well I am moving the radiator down and back for an over the top IC pipe setup, so that shouldn't be too bad. Is it just the filler neck that is too tall, or is the overall radiator size taller?

The filler neck on the NA's is more towards the side while the NB's are towards the middle of the OEM radiator, these radiators were designed for NA's so you have to make it fit. Pretty much, you get a $160 radiator, it's not drop in and forget, but it works well and has a 1 year warranty. It suits 99% of the peoples needs here.

Ok just called... Said still 2weeks out, and was pretty confident bout the shipment coming in. Apparently they ship several different products in each container. It stays there till its full, and then its sent. Thats why they get shipments of these every couple months...the the AMOUNT of rads in each shipment, basically depends on how many can be manufactured by the time the container is ready to leave...
That said they are almost sold out of these on pre-orders...I was told they may have 8-10 left. After that would be about 2months till the next shipment, give or take...
Just wanted to post an update for everyone...
On a side note, I REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY hope these are as good of quality as everyone says...would hate to have to wait another 2 months (total of 3) for a rad... lol

I was told by someone who ordered one today that they said 5 weeks. 4 weeks for them to get them and another week for you to receive your radiator from them.

Quality yes-Price no.
I hope they come through, Ill call them and ask to make sure they are not just saying that to discourage you guys from calling them or maybe they think you are trying to buy one and they don't have any to sell. I'll keep you all posted.
