The mishimoto and haste ones looks good, but we all know what looks good can't always be good...

Hopefully someone picks this up and posts some good results like the ebay i/c

Default Haste

I am purchasing the Haste Radiator. I did some research on the company and they make vehicle specific radiators NOT universal fit type. I am going for it and I'll let you know.

I purchased the Mishimoto one a while back and it is now in my car, the quality is real good, fitment is good, doens't come with hardware to mount fans, but that was a quick trip to AutoZone. It holds more fluid than the stock unit, it is 2 row, that combined with a 160 degree thermostat the car is enjoying it, the temperature never goes above 160-170 in traffic, and cruising the temp stays at a solid 160, whereas with my stock one it fluctuated between 170-190 in traffic and about 175 cruising, that was also with a 160 degree thermostat.

FYI - I found a site that still sells the Koyo non-race radiator that has the plastic endtanks (Model #A2450). It was $202.88 shipped from WA to me in FL. I just didn't see the need for me to purchase the race one for $250 more. If the stock one has lasted me 90K, I'm ok with having to buy a new one hopefully in another 90K. But I doubt I'll have my Subie that long

Here's the site. Excellent customer service and they shipped it out the same day and provided me with a tracking number per my request. I ordered it on Wednesday and it's scheduled to arrive on the 25th per UPS.

Here's the link

And the link to the other Koyos they sell.

HA - don't hate

Mine will be fine for a while. It seaps ever so slightly once in a while, but since I'm doing my 90K in a few weeks, I figure I'd change everything. Got me a Prodrive CAI and diff guard last week.

Oh yeah, Dan @ Prodrive is going to give me a tour around their shop in July when I'm out there. Maybe I can get some goodies and get sponsored

Thumbs up Haste Radiator install

Installed the Haste Radiator from Advanation on Ebay. It comes packed in styrofoam and heavy cardboard. No damage what-so-ever. Looks beautiful out of the box. ONLY problem during install was the oem fans install alittle crooked and I mean ONLY ALITTLE. More cosmetic than anything. I had no problems with fitment into the car. It has LOWERED my operating temps 10 degrees depending on how hard I am driving. It took 2.5 gallons plus to fill radiator, block and turbo reservoir. You will need to find screws to mount oem fans as the oem ones are self tapping and CAN NOT be re-used! Same thread as the screws that hold overflow on as was stated above. You also will need to cut down your hoses as this baby is THICK! Sorry no photos wife had taken digital to Chicago as I stayed home to do the radiator change.
Any other questions feel free to contact me.
Also have the Haste 1.3 bar radiator cap for sale as I have 2 Crucial Racing caps. Overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

No doubt. I have been dealing with stock radiator seep which is embarassing/aggravating to say the least. I put this off, but this writeup definately steered me to the haste. Thanks to all posters for getting this kind of info out.

The koyos with the plastic endtanks can be found for around 200 shipped however, they are thin, only one row, but work well as a replacement for the stocker.
