    Default Anyone use a Mishimoto aluminum radiator?

    Well I've found my coolant issue. I pressure tested the coolant system today and I've got at least one leak in the radiator. I thinking I've got a few more based on the coolant I found in different places while replacing the downpipe.

    The one that's in there now is at least 6 years old. I got it from Radiator Barn and it's all metal. I just recently found out that Radiator Barn got bought out the end of last year. I'm debating as to whether to try to get this one repaired or replace it. All metal radiators for our cars are few and far between.

    I'm look at a Mishimoto aluminum radiator made for the All Trac. Has anybody used one of theirs? Any opinions?

    I run one in the corolla. It made for a pretty big drop in temps right off the bat.

    Thanks guys. From what reviews I found it appeared they were a good product. I'll probably go ahead and order today or tomorrow.

    The AutoPwr radiators aren't that bad either. I used one in my ST215 swap.

    We sell a ton of Mishimoto radiators through my work and we haven't heard any negative feedback on them really at all.

    I ordered one on Monday and they showed that it would be here between March 3-14. It showed up on Wednesday. Fast shipping. I'm hoping to get it put in over the weekend if the weather cooperates.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I didn't really want to spend that much, but this should take car of the radiator problems.

    I've got to get in mounted. Supposedly, it's a drop in replacement. I guess I'll see. It looks like it will go into the mounts OK but I'm wondering about the fan and fan shroud. I'll post up more one I've got it in the car.

    You can safely ditch the stock fan and shroud. Just go with a slimline electric replacement. I used a 10" fan and I have never had any issues, but you would likely want to use either a pair of 10's or a single 12".

    I had a pair of 12" slim fans on mine. One a pusher the other a puller. With both running full speed they kept the 215 nice and cool in the az summer while boosting 15psi.

    Thanks Mario and Tim. I'm going to check on those. The only negative I've read on the radiator so far is an issue with the stock fan. I've got to look at that and I'm going to check on the slimlines as well.

    Question about your installs on the slimline fans. Did you wire them into the factory wiring or did you wire them in independently?

    I removed the connections from my stock fans and wired them into there. I didn't want to trip the fuse for the fans (as they pulled near the max each) so I wired the passenger side up like a standard cooling fan. The driver side I wired up with a relay and fed the power from the AC fan. When the cooling fan turned on, the driver fan turned on but drew power from a different source. I think I have it drawn up somewhere....

    I run one in the Supra - very happy with it. They even gave me a free replacement when my clutch fan decided to have a hoe-down with the rad core. I run electric fans now.

    That's good to know about the warranty.

    That's a hell of a radiator Mafix. Maybe overkill but you don't have to worry about overheating with that one.

    I ran my 10" slimline electric fan straight off of the factory harness so that I could keep all of the factory safeties. Always worked perfectly.

    Cool. That's what I'm planning on doing. I've got one coming that should be here tomorrow. Hopefully I can get it and the radiator installed this weekend. I'm running out of time to check things out before the Dragon.
