Default Koyorad Radiator

Finally installed an all aluminum radiator, went with a Koyorad. The fit was dead-on perfect, nice welds, excellent quality, cools beautifully. Highly recommend.

I just installed this radiator. I bought it from Amazon for a decent deal. Stock parts all mounted up perfectly.

I was on the fence about picking this up since so few people have it but it looks like a nice bit of kit. Keep us updated on the performance. I ended up going with a zionsville.

I've been using a Mishimoto electric fan for a couple years now, works fine.
Redline360 is where I bought the radiator, 395.00.

Nice! Is the Koyo thicker than the stock radiator?

looking at the picture it does look thicker than OEM. Just like CSF, Mishi, ect.
