Thumbs up Speedmonkee radiator/Perrin hose install

I got my Speedmonkee radiator installed today and I wish I had a digital camera. It's a very well made piece. Fit and finish are great and the install was really easy. I have not had a chance to log my temps and see if they're any lower yet. I'll post info when I can. I'm glad to no longer see plastic end-tanks (evil) when I open the hood. I used about 35% antifreeze, with the rest being water and Royal Purple Purple Ice.

I also took off the lid to the coolant reservoir (see this thread for more info) and took a wire wheel to the underside, knocking off all the paint. It was bubbled, but had not peeled off yet.

Well- so far I've only watched my temps on the highway. A steady 86 degrees so far. Once I get my logger software going, I'll post a little more info.

I have tried searching for differences between the PWR and Speedmonkey radiators. Do you have any information you can provide? Why you chose this over the PWR?

I just got through with the same... speedmonkee rad + perrin hoses. It's a great piece... ogtta get my gauges up and running though to run some tests. First impression though... money well spent.

Make sure you put some rubber between the radiator and the lower mounting tabs. If you look on the tabs, you'll see 2 ridges that protrude up. These rub on the radiator and can rub a hole in it after a while. It seems to be an issue with the driver's side more then the passenger side, but I put some cut rubber hose on both just in case.
