New Radiator Help

I need to replace the radiator in my 97 Lude I recently bought. I would like to have an all-aluminum radiator, but the problem is I have the tip-tronic tranny and all the aluminum radiators I find are for manual gear boxes. Does anyone know if their is an all aluminum radiator that will work with the auto tranny? Or will I just have to settle for an OEM Denso? Thanks!

I believe the Koyo (sp?) ones do, as I didn't know that there was a difference between the auto and manual ones.

So does your radiator have a plug in the bottom for the tranny? If so I had the same problem with my 98 SH, I know it's a manual but there was a plug at the bottom which oil came out of the tube, I assume it was for the ATTS. Anyways you can just custom mount a oil cooler in the front of your engine bay, it's a little more work but it's worth it. I love my Fluidyne radiator it's lighter and it definitely keeps the engine cooler.

koyo's all aluminum radiators are for manuals only. their oem replacement line covers manual and auto.
