Opinions on Haste aluminum radiator

I'm curious to know if anyone on PZ is using the Haste 3-Row aluminum radiator. I picked one up and will be installing next week, but does anyone have any experience with one of these? I was debating on a Mishimoto but couldn't pass up the price point on this one.

sounds like ebay crap

but if your car is equipped with ATTS, you need to purchase optional transmission cooler

I really like what I have seen of Koyo

I have heard of Haste before, never known anyone to use a Haste. I do ponder the 3 rows in the radiator may actually hurt cooling. It is often thought, the more rows a radiator has, means it will cool better. However, the radiator is limited in size in order to fit the stock location. Thus the rows inside the radiator become smaller.

A new radiator is a good thing, especially if you are replacing an older stock radiator.

Re: Opinions on Haste aluminum radiator

Let us know how it goes. I put a new radiator in our Lude yesterday. I briefly looked at the aluminum radiators but decided to just go with a Murray from O'Reillys. Should be fine for commuting and has a lifetime warranty. Replaced the stock rad due to a ruptured end tank. It made it 15 yrs though, pretty good in my opinion.

Do you have to get larger radiator hoses? The few I looked at on eBay said something about the inlet and outlet being larger and needing to "upgrade your hoses."

Good luck, my radiator change was easy....then I decided to change my serpentine belts....that was a pain.

Oh and if you change your thermostat, be prepared for a big splash of coolant when you pull it out. :D
