If you have the money to blow go with all FM stuff, but many people use the $200-$300 radiators and have great success with proper ducting and cooling mods.

I recall reading thats FM uses the PWR radiator but I could be wrong. Either way you cant go wrong with either choice. BTW the link was to explain why something like the PWR/FM is better then a Koyo or Mishimoto

I'm trying to figure out if a $200 radiator is out of my budget at the moment. I like the koyo but may end up with godspeed or less.

I helped a guy install a replacement radiator this spring. Less than 90 bucks, and it drops right in. Figure the old one lasted 14 years, that's a decent return.

Looks like I will be trying to sell my aftermarket flywheel i have not installed to pay for a radiator. I think I'm going to go with the koyo 37mm

Yah, thought about it and talked to the wife about it, no use spending up to $90 on a oem replacement when down the road I will need to replace it anyways.
