Mishimoto X-Line Radiator and Slim Fan

My original radiator was looking rather scabby and tatty, I thought it might be about time to upgrade seeing as I'll be pushing the car harder for longer, the last thing I want is for it to start leaking whilst I'm out at the track or on a spirited drive in the countryside.

I spoke to Maz over at www.hond-r.com having wanted to originally buy a KOYO radiator which was only a dual core and £100 more expensive he said to give Mishimoto a try as it is a triple core and a lot less in price too. All the fixing and welding methods are the same and the quality is pretty much on par. I've heard good things about Mishimoto in the US too so I thought why not. I also purchased a slim fan as the thickness of the radiator has pretty much doubled overall so there won't be much room for the OEM one to sit behind without touching the gearbox housing.

I'll be fitting this later in the summer once the car is back on the road and running again, I'll give a verdict on how it performs in the hot summer days.

Comparing the sizes
