Ya the nipple that goes to the degas bottle broke a long time ago and i just have epoxy holding it on. To get new tanks is 100 bucks but for another 100 you wouldnt have to worry bout it again.

Finished putting my radiator in about 2 hours ago and tested it out. No leaks. I didn't measure it until I was finished, but the OEM SD radiator core measures ~2 1/8" thick and this one is right at 3" thick. Obviously I did have to modify all the bushings farther than I did with the OEM radiator b/c of the extra thickness. I just read through the "limited lifetime warranty" info and it doesn't cover products used for racing. LMFAO

Well so far it's running hotter than it used to. Cruising at 85mph to work today, water was 210* and oil 208*. That is going to bug me. When I slowed down, temps came down to normal. Wonder if this radiator just doesn't cool as well as the stocker. It could be that air coming across the temp probe for the fans is cooling the temp probe enough to prevent the fans from turning on. I'll be checking that out tonight after work.

It is a 3 core yes? not a 4 like the stock?

Thats why i hesitate to go to aftermarket. the stock coolers are so beastly.

I just looked up the part number and it shows to be a 2 row. It also says it's 2 1/8" thick, which is the same thickness as the SD stocker, but mine is right at 3" thick. I"d like to think that there's no air in the system, but I'm going to make sure after I get off work and I'm gonna check out the fans to make sure they are staying on when I'm cruising.

EDIT: I've done some more research and figured out that Glenn's radiator is made by Performance Radiator. Found some good stuff about them.

You can tell that by the picture? Good to know its a good one. I think it cools as good as the orginal.

I looked at all the radiators I could find and that's the only one I could find that had the mounts for the fan shroud like yours. Also, the aluminum caps look like they are crimped on like the factory plastic caps instead of welded like the others I've found. Not saying that's a problem, just the similarity I see between yours and the one from Performance Radiator. Also, the sticker on top of yours looks like the Performance Radiator logo

If this one turns out to be a bust, I may try one of those, one of the Mishimoto radiators, or get one custom made. I don't like the plastic crap. lol

Just got home and I think I either have some air trapped under the t-stat or im having t-stat issues. I've been told that the t-stat wont open if there is an air pocket trapped under it. Im not sure as I've never had that problem. All I know is I ran it at 210* for about 30 miles home, got home and the upper hose has tons of pressure. Took the cap off the degas bottle to check the level and of course pressure released. Let it sit and idle for about 10 minutes holding 199-200* and the upper hose wasnt flowing any water. Gonna change the t-stat out to my 180* and see what happens.

Travis, how is the silla radiator holding up? Im about to pull the trigger on an aluminum radiator and not sure which on to go with yet. I was gonna get a performance radiator, but they only come with the trans cooler built in. Are the sillas the same way?
