Default Re: Koyorad Radiator

I installed mine over winter and i’ve been running it with no clutch fan or shroud, just the aux fan. So far it’s perfect, fit like stock and hasn’t got hot without the fan. I don’t think mine has an npt fitting. I think that’s a typo in the description, does anyone have the npt fitting?

Default Koyorad Radiator

Just received the Koyorad radiator. Looks really nice, no 1/8" NPT fitting on this one.



Is this tab suppose to be bent inward?

I been looking around, sounds like this is most reliable aluminum radiator that fits and works well for the price.

Water pipe connecting line. Maybe the entire cooling system if it hasn't ever been done.
