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?
Silla was the same way. I pulled the Silla back out as I suspected it was leaking a tiny bit of water. I could always smell hot coolant under the hood when I parked the truck, but never found a leak. Even with the radiator out of the truck, I can see no spots that appeared to leak, but the coolant smell went away with the radiator. It seemed to cool pretty much like the stock radiator did, so that was ok.
I switched to a Mishimoto radiator this time (EXPENSIVE). I'm not sure I would make that switch again with the cost of this radiator, but it sure is pretty. IMO, try out Performance Radiator. That radiator has been recommended in the past by Joey IIRC and that is what I believe to be the radiator that Glenn has.
Ya i thought about getting a mishimoto, but figured i dont need one for what i do. I was going to get the performance radiator one, but it has the trans cooler built in to it. Since i have a stick i wouldnt need it. I guess it would be alright to just plug the holes wouldnt it?

that round sticker on the top of the radiator I thin is for 1800 radiator.... I bought from them before for my jeep...
Never heard of them. I have seen a Performance Radiator brand radiator in person and it looked exactly like Glenn's, but that's not to say two different brands don't look exactly the same. Could probably go either way.
Gabe, all the SD radiators I have used had the trans cooler built into them. I don't need it with my stick either, but it doesn't hurt anything.
I'm just leery.every mustang I've seen w one leaked.it may have beeen a prpblem that was cured.i don't knoww.but I'm fine with my stocker since my truck is stock.
on a side note.my e fans are finallly all hooked up and working great and the stock alt is now keeping up.woo hoo!
