Default performance radiator quality?

Anyone have a aftermarket performance radiator or know someone with one?

I have to get a new radiator and I don't want to have to pay the high cost for OEM.

Koyo is the best performing for the $ - but I don't know what your idea of expensive is!

Thank you for the input on other radiators. Mine is leaking and I was offered OEM for 600+ or the performance radiator brand from 400+ from coni.

Just looking for an equivlant or better radiator that I don't have to wait a long time to ship here.

I need to buy a beater. I let Jake know to go ahead with the performance radiator.

I can't keep driving the wife everywhere.

Thx for the input.

I used to sell Performance Radiators back in the day when I worked at B&C. They were always much better than the store brand B&C sold at the time. More expensive, but you do get what you pay for often times.
