Just installed 3-row aluminum radiator *pix*

I just installed the new Haste 3-row aluminum radiator and new OBX hose kit. I was highly skeptical about the quality, but was pleasantly suprised when it showed up. The welds are very nice, and fitment was a breeze, with no clearance issues at all. There was no included trans cooler for the ATTS system, so I'll need to add an external cooling unit. Also, the drivers side stock fan fits fine, but the passenger side fan won't clear the front motor mount so I'll need to upgrade to slim fans--for now I'm just running the driver's side fan. I took it out and drove it relatively hard to try and generate some cooling problems, but the additional surface area has definitely improved efficiency.

Pics below..

The coilovers were $985 shipped from my buddy Tommy in Georgia. The radiator was $147 shipped, got it for a steal on the bay. Hose kit was $40. I'm thinkin probably another $80-100 for trans cooler and $100 or so for a slimline fan kit. Gotta pay to play on this stuff, but I was EXTREMELY pleased with the price point on the rad. Great quality, sweet price.

Re: Just installed 3-row aluminum radiator *pix*

Maybe a post-summer update as well. I'm sure Albuquerque doesn't get as humid as where you're at but the heat can be just as bad, so I'm interested in knowing

Yes, that is an MSD Blaster 2... I just recently installed a full MSD ignition system with the 6-AL controller. That install thread is here.

To answer the previous question about temp control--yes, I have noticed a slight reduction in operating temp (<5 degrees F), but keep in mind the thermostat temperature threshold hasn't changed so it just takes longer for the car to heat up under hard driving conditions and I can push it harder without worrying so much about overheating.

Re: Just installed 3-row aluminum radiator *pix*

Took it out to Hallett and did some track time for about two hours this morning. No cooling issues at all... it actually stayed really flat, even when I let it idle for 10 minutes after the first three circuits. Haste is a winner in my book so far
