Default 2 1/16" aluminum "race" radiator

This radiator was on my turbo miata for two years and worked great. Fits 1990-97 cars. I sold the car and need to get rid of this radiator. With a 180* thermostat, the highest coolant temp recorded was 186* after a 20 min track session. This radiator will solve your cooling problems! It is a tight squeeze, and you will have to trim some of the plastic from the lower fan shroud. It is all aluminum, purchased from coolradiator.com. Comes with a 16 psi cap and mounting brackets. The top tank was painted flat black to make it more discrete.

Here is the install thread: https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/sho...olradiator.com

$250 shipped in the lower 48

Same radiator I have, only larger. Even at my only 2" core, it's great. Good luck with the sale.

I'm surprised by the lack of interest. As far as I know, this radiator is no longer available, and the closest comparable is several hundred more.

Wait some more.
I have the 1" version and it works well for my turbo car.

My coolradiator.com rad came with the same cap. I assume they were just reselling the CSF stuff. Either case, the CSF aluminum rads are discontinued, and coolradiator.com doesn't exist anymore.

As Scott said, the cap is the same 16 psi cap that came with the radiator. I believe the radiator is a CSF unit, but have no concrete proof.

It is a sweet radiator, I was this -><- close to making it fit my '99, but you would have to cut out the lower mounting supports, and I'm not quite ready to rip this car up.
