What are you guys running for a radiator? Seems like the only aftermarket is the CX Racing one, but I don't know if it bolts right up with the factory fans or not. Also, if you got a NOS or a good used one that you could sell for cheaper than the CX and you are near me (CT), send a PM.

Thanks

Just go ahead and get a CXRacing radiator, and 2 12" slim electric fans....It will keep it very cool, and work perfectly...

Cx racing radiator is awesome. All bolts up like stock! Just make sure to bolt the fans to it  outside of the car and slide the whole assembly in  it's a half hr job.

It will also clear clutch fan assembly  if you ever go or wanna go that route. I had it in my car both ways.

Got mine soldered up by a shop (It had pin-holes in it from the top fan bracket breaking off), put a fresh coat of paint on it and BAM! Good as new.

Did anyone buy the optional shroud from CX? or just bolt the fans directly to the radiator. It appears the shroud is so flat it would actually decrease the flow outside the perimeter of the fan.

I've heard that the shroud on the CX is really bad for cooling at anything other than cruising. Stockies should do better as long as they work right.

I have the complete fan/shroud/radiator combo from CX Racing and have had zero issues with cooling.
