Default radiator upgrade. options ?

hey guys, its probably been asked before, but what kind of radiators would you guys recommend ? i don't know many companies aside from koyo and pwr.

i was leaning toward a koyo 37 or 55. what do you guys think ? i think braineack said he was running a cool radiator or something ? any suggestions are appreciated. range is from 250-350, and im looking into using the stock fans, maybe upgrade them later or something.

thanks again
Scott

koyo 37 is a healthy radiator. I dunno what I'd do with 5/8" more meat there. I haven't had problems with heat using it on the track.

I'd go with the thick Koyo.....especially if you have a healthy FMIC in front of it. They are cheap from www.absoluteradiator.com

Well if your on a budget, you can get the auto tranny metal radiator barn rad....alot of guys have had experience with these on and off track and they work just as well as the koyo and pwr rads but heavier (metal).

Another vote for the double row all metal Radiator from Radiator Barn. Wicking shipping shots. P.S. - The radiator might weigh in at 10# max - Maybe 12#. It keeps LOLA from losing her cool.........And it keep me from spending too much money for a Pretty KOYO all aluminum.
