I looked at those and it looks like they don't have the mounting tabs for the cooling fans just bare end tanks.

They usually dont end the sale because the cost to start up a new ad. may as well keep the original ad going.

I ordered one from a different seller. The listing by CX Racing isn't posted anymore. I'll see what happens and let y'all know.

UPDATE:

The second seller I had ordered the CX Racing one from had refunded my money because it turns out that was a second store of CX Racing. So I ordered one of the OE replacements from ebay.

The OE style replacement matches up fine however it is missing bungs for the thermo sensors and also the fan mounting points.

Being that CX Racing let me keep the aluminum fan shroud and fans, I will just take the old tabs off my old radiator, JB Weld them to the new one and run that for a while until a new aluminum one comes about.

I will post pictures when I get home tonight.

When I was stock car racing I used Griffin radiators. I bet if one of the CAD or other 3D type drawing guy's here made a nice print, that Griffin or another American radiator company would be glad to give a price to us.
I was about to order a Mookeh down pipe & one of these radiator set up's. Both have been pulled due to quality control or lack thereof.

Yeah, wish you had mentioned that you were considering the oe style replacement. I would've warned you about the lack of sensor bungs and fan tabs.

The aluminum radiator that T.E.P. sells is a Griffin. I tried to get one directly from Griffin, since I work in the racing industry, but they must have some kind of exclusive deal with T.E.P. cuz they wouldn't even entertain the idea. So, I bought a CX back when KellieDM sold em. I've been very happy with it.

Sorry you've had such a dilemma with this.

I was just considering any radiator to get the car driving. It has been at my dealership for 2 months now. The lot manager is up my butt to get it out but the whole radiator thing was holding me up.

i just ran the sensor wires to ground so the fans come on when ignition is on because mine had failed.

If I can get that used CX radiator I will just wait to do the whole job then and not do it twice. Also so I can ship back or sell the radiator I just got.

Griffin radiators is here in South Carolina about 2 hours away from me. I had debated contacting them however on their website catalog it listed the radiator for 750 dollars. TEP sells it for far less, probably because they buy a bunch in bulk.

I have to drive from Charleston to Atlanta for training on a regular basis. The town Griffin is located at is along the route I take. TEP said they were out of those radiators and it was going to be a while before they got more. Probably because of bulk purchasing.

Yeah, it was several years (6or7)ago. Maybe things have changed.

I was hoping I could get one for the race team price. $750 is the general public price. I figure they probably have about $100 in each unit, so if I could've gotten one for $300-400, I would've gone that route. Oh well.
