Unhappy Radiator woes

Hey, got a few questions hope someone can answer:

Just got 2000 Impreza rs 2.5

Radiator small leak on bottom drivers side.

Oem from Subaru: 340$

found aftermarket ones labeled oem from 180 to 200.

do i stay stock(oem) or do i go with a nicer one?

what are nicer ones? brands, recommendations?

Thank you

I'm in the same boat - I think the OEM is fine, as the juiced-up models are a lot more $ IIRC. I'm probably not going to go to a dealer, so comparison-shopping an OEM seems best for me. I keep a jug of prestone ready-mix and bar's aluminum/ liquid suspension stop-leak in the back seat for now.

I suggest you read the thread I started. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...minum+radiator

I just got done dealing with this. I highly suggest you get an aluminum one. The koyo aluminum radiator I just put in is of excellent quality.
