Radiator mfg. suggestions please

Postby swharris [OP] » July 28th 2014, 4:16am

Of course imediately after I finish up a complete front end suspension rebuild, timing cover/oil pan leak fix, and button everything up the damn radiator end tank springs a leak. I actually thought about proactively replacing the radiator as it was already disconnected and staring at me in the face, but it was leak free, and why spend money I don't need to spend. Haha...now I am.

I need suggestion of a good brand and or supplier, and maybe one with a dual core or something a bit better. I guess I'm keeping this thing since it just turned 300k :D

I had two defective (leaking) from new Delphi RA1200 radiators so I wouldn't recommend! Amazon gave me my choice of replacement and went with Vista-Pro which has been fine. I didn't feel like this was an area I really needed to upgrade or modify as I've never experienced any overheating or cooling system issues.

Congrats on the 300k!
