Cooling system

anyone have any comments or personal experience with the koyo aluminum rad? my radiator is shot and i figure if i gotta get a new one might as well do it right. so i was thinkin that rad. samco silicone hoses, mugen therm. and some flex-a-lite dual slim-line fans. any comments?

Re: Cooling system

Mine works great. Keeps the car really cool. My fan never kicks on even in stop and go traffic because it keeps the temp down so much.

x2, and i even have the civic 1/2 rad as well, with 1 slim fan.

the only over-heating problems i have are on 100+ degree days with the A/C on (altho that might be due to not having the A/C fan haha) or when i'm on the highway doing 80-90mph for like 2+ hours.
but i'm boosted as well...

Re: Cooling system

well my Koyo knock off works great, so the KOYO one must be awesome. Since your almost dead set on the Koyo, go for it....

Although my knock-off radiator sits a little high and i don't wanna cut my top hose with the hood prop. I just put the hood prop in the trunk. Its been working out so far :)
