Default Radiator finally went...

Read all the posts on the different rads, want to spend around $200-ish for an all metal. Mishomoto comes up a lot in my price range. Any other recommendations for an EJ205? If the oem fans don't fit along with overflow tank it would need to come with itů

Thoughts? Deals floating around? Dual core, three core, whats my best bet? Never had a problem with temps, more concerned with longevity, the oem's suck.

EJ205 doesn't matter, all 04-07 radiators are the same. There are DIY's and write up's on how to make your stock fans and overflow work, so don't sweat it.

NASIOC vendor's will have deals. PM Unabomber and he can likely get you something. Import Image Racing is great about deals, just talk to Josh.

OEM's don't suck, you even said you never had an issue with them. But with your car being almost 10 years old, it will have wear and tear. Specifically with the plastics of the vehicle, which with the constant heat cycles the radiators see, is the reason for the fail.

cxracing... cheap, well made. I've heard of some people having issues with welds that leaked instantly but apparantly getting a return was easy. (also, $129!) I've been very happy with mine at least.
