Yes. The radiator that came in my front clip was cracked and had a screw threaded into one of the holes... so I went with a mishimoto.

Its just a little something to check.



You seem to have a lot of questions, and I'll be honest, before you jump into something like this, you need to do a bit more reading. There's plenty of threads in the Swap forums explaining priming the motor and ensuring oil circulation to the turbo.

I did a hell of a lot of research before doing my swap and it wasn't anywhere near enough. Instead of continuing along with your swap questions here in the 207 thread, I'd suggest starting a thread in the Swap forums. You'll get a lot of help there.

My advice: If you're still asking these types of questions, you need to take a month and read everything you can about doing an engine swap. Your engine isn't blown, you shouldn't rush into this. You'll just end up spending way more money and time than you need to.
