Default GROUP BUY: Mishimoto Radiators - 1990-1997 NA!

I am attempting to organize a group buy on the new Miata rads from Mishimoto.

I have these on order, and they should be in my hands by early next week. I also have the ability to drop ship them if the demand exceeds my inventory.

To do this group buy, I need 5 people. MSRP on the radiator is $320. MAP (Minimum Advertised Pricing) is $240. If I can get 5 people to commit, I can offer the radiators at an additional 10% off, making the price $216.

Additionally, if I can get 10 people, I will do free ground shipping for everyone.

I know everyone is a little sketchy with the Godspeed GB thread and the time to delivery, but I figured I'd give it a go.





Here are the specs.
Core Size: 320 x 638
Rows: 2
Inlet: 32
Outlet: 32
Core Thickness: 52mm
Tank Wall Thickness: 2mm
Fill Neck: 32mm
Purchase Includes: Mishimoto Radiator, Mishimoto Radiator Cap

Where is your shop located? If you can find another car for me to drive for a day I'd be happy to let you borrow mine for test fit in exchange for a little dyno time (or discount on said time) to re-tune it.

*edit* or if we schedule it right you can have to car on a day my wife doesn't work so I can take her car to work

need to test my sealing of the stock radiator and dual fan mod (this is a street car) and see what kind of temps I get. If it's not good enough I'd be down for one. What's the time limit on the GB?

Alright guys, let's get 10 in on this at least so we can get the free shipping...Nester says he'll have them in...I already paid for 2 Godspeed radiators like 3 months ago and it's still "next month", no aluminum-I'm tired of waiting-cancelling Godspeed radiators tomorrow...I don't care about pics...I googled and found a lot of pics for other cars so I'm assuming it will look the same, only will fit a Miata: http://features.evolutionm.net/article.php?id=108

I'M IN FOR ONE PLEASE!!! JUST LET ME KNOW HOW TO PAY YOU. Later-Scott

I assume that these are very similar to the GS ones, if not the same...I am sure they can be modified to fit on the NB. Only real difference between NA and NB is the cap location, if you are willing to massage your hood to make room for the cap on the NB then go for it, I have seen it done elsewhere with the GS, so no reason it won't work with the Mishi.
To all who can't wait for the GS, I highly advise you get in on this GB, $216 shipped is a great value.

Put me in for one. Id like to see pictures of the unit personally.

I will justify getting one from a reliability improving stand point. 216 is too good to pass up.
