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?

^^^^ Silla is a trusted brand; they make only one of two mass-produced radiators for the old Saturns that aren't doomed to fail right out of the box.

Almost no one makes radiators specifically for manual transmissions anymore. It's cheaper to put the tranny cooler in all the radiators. This has been the trend for 30-odd years.

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 ordered the performance radiator the other day. Its the same brand as my intercooler, so they will be a match set. Maybe way down the road il try the mishimoto.

My Mishimoto is fine. outside appearance is absolutely awesome, but that says nothing for what's going on inside the radiator. I run about the same temps as I did with the stock SD radiator honestly.
