Pro tuning radiator?

I found an aluminum radiator online that says itís direct bolt on. Seems like a good deal but in my experience you get what you pay for. Anyone else have experience or know anything about these radiators? Thanks!

It looks fine.... you may run into some fitment issues but that's typical of all aftermarket radiators for our cars. It varies from brand to brand. With that version, it's likely just an eBay radiator that they're upselling. It will work just fine but you may have a small battle getting it mounted in the car.

Yep, they are just re-selling a bunch of the rando Chinese-made parts it looks like. You see those cheap radiators all over Ebay.

Will it go in the car, hold water, and cool down the car? Yes. Will it be a big damn challenge to get it to fit, will the fans actually bolt up to it, will the hose ports be in the right place and right size, etc.? Probably so.

The Koyo radiators are VERY reasonably priced, fit great, are of excellent quality, and require no hacking or dorking around to make them fit. There's no good reason to get one of these super cheapo radiators.

good to know! ^^ I donít wanna go cheap Chinese, I was really aiming at finding out if it was a cheap one or not and it seems to be that way, I have a member on here selling me an oem one for a reasonable price, I think I may go that route! Thanks guys!
