Is that an aluminum radiator or copper/brass? Because the stock radiator may be thinner, but it is aluminum and will dump more heat than a copper/brass unit of the same size. Exact dimensions of the radiator?

radiator core is 1.75in thick 15.5in tall and 15.5in wide. Holds almost as much coolant as my FM race radiator.

what kind of metal?
Hold's less coolant and less surface area.
Is this really sufficient?

Did you read what I said? The FM Race radiator is about the largest capacity you can find, slightly less is still 3x more than stock!! And the metal is brass I believe, but no plastic anywhere. PM me a silly offer, but not a retarded one!!

I asked you if it was copper/brass or aluminum earlier and I read what you said:

Did you read what I said? What pressure was this radiator designed to run from the factory?

Are you actually interested in it or just being an ***? Last I checked brass is a metal!! And the cap is for 16lbs.

No **** it's metal. I asked if it was copper brass or aluminum in construction. You said "metal". I'm pretty sure it was metal, hence why I asked which type. I was interested. And I asked what pressure the radiator ran from the factory, not what pressure cap you purchased for it. Are my questions that hard to understand?

Interesting setup..

Don't forget material and surface area is more valuable than coolant capacity in radiators. If it was all aluminum I'd probably be comfortable with that, but my ALL METAL (brass/copper) miata radiator has trouble keeping my temps down on a 70 degree day and I'm not even turbo. :(
