Default Godspeed rads

Well yet another one of my cars ate a belt today ( and this time an important one, water pump) and spewed its radiator contents all over the bottom of my hood. So I'm in the market for a new radiator since there is no telling how long the patch will hold on my daily driver. Do you guys recommend godspeed or what? I'm not going to pay over $200 for a name when I can get the original warranted radiator installed at a shop for a little over $200. But while I'm at it I'd like to upgrade from the plastic end tanks, anyone have any suggestions?

Where ya' been?

On radiators Mishimuto (SP?) is the hot rad. right now. It's not as cheap as G.S, but they ship them out quick. I ordered a G.S. May 5th. I canceled in late July after calling them to check on the status and was informed they would have them hopefully in September.

I've used the all metal replacements for the automatics but had a few rot out on me. At this point I don't think the GS is an option, backorder backorder backorder. The Mishimoto is great but comes in at over $200 and even that is now backordered through Nester.

yup, about the same time frame for both, and they're about the same product. both great radiators for the price though, just to rub it in.
