  1. I just installed one last weekend. Works AWESOME! I was running like 225* before. No im running about 195*
  2. ^what size did you order and does it work w/the stock overflow and fan?
  3. So..anybody happen to have a pic of one of these radiators in their car?

    i wanna see how this looks too..im sure alot of people are gonna jump on this (upgrade)<necessity>

    does this work with auto aode???????

    why cant you use the stock fan setup?or can you?????

    why did they jack the pics from the thread? why?why?why?
  5. :lol: Maybe cause they were posted TWO years ago. :rlaugh:
  6. I just installed one over the weekend. It works great; it dropped the temp from the A to the O. I can even run the air conditioner in stop-and-go traffic and stay right on the R.

    I used the SUM-380428 (19"x28"x3"), and I was able to use the stock fan and overflow bottle. It's a little tight between the fan and the water pump pulley, but it fits. I'm also gonna replace the overflow tank with an aluminum one from Summit later this week, but only because I don't like the looks of the stock one.

    I'll try to post some pictures tonight when I get home.

  7. Any chance you have the pics for this yet?

    I am running 210 plus in traffic without the A/C, I've already replaced the thermo, the ECT and had the radiator flushed. My A/C blows cold and I would like to use it.


  8. Actually 210-213 is normal for our cars.
  9. Actually, I posted them in a new thread last week... should have mentioned that here, now that I think about it. If I've done this right, the thread should be here:

    Or if that doesn't work, do a search on 'summit aluminum radiator'.

  10. My car with the stock cooling system runs at 170* atlike 80* outside when it is very humid. It has been more than sufficient enough for me.
  11. Resurecting an old thread...

    I have the radiator sitting in place, fits real nice. Still trying to figure out how to secure the bottom of the radiator, any tips?

  12. do you have any pics?
  13. I will post some pics soon.

    I got it in, tested it out today mid 90's temps. without the it would run up to jst short of 210 and the low speed fan would come on (this was in a little traffic, not hig speed). Once the speed went up (35-45mph) the temp dropped just a bit. I then kicked on the AC (max), bam, the thing dropped to 195 (I have a 195 degree thermo), and just stuck there, whether I was moving or not. Note, I have not modified the operation of the fan in any way, I am considering it, I usually drive with the windows open, it would be nice to have the option of dropping the engine temp with the flip of a switch.

    Another positive... the radiator is only $159 now...

    If I did it again, I would consider ging the fluidyne route, it took me probably a total 6-8 hours for the install. I work slow...

  14. who got pics of this installed? anyone? It sounds like the fan is gonna be a headache to mount?
  15. do a search under my screen name i have pics in a thread about a month ago....

  16. Give us the link! :bang:
  17. The fan mounting was actually pretty easy, I shaved a bit of the passenger side of the fan to clear the upper rad hose and then used a radiator mount kit ~$6 from autozone.
