Dang that's awful purdy. Looks like a show car custom job. Mine's made of a space age polymer 馃槀
Whoa! Give some info on it please. Thinking about swapping mine soon but keeping stock fan. I have a 2002 tb inline 6.
Better check the A/C condenser while you're in there. The radiator supposedly has to come out to get the condenser out, might as well do both at the same time if the condenser has the usual damage from road debris and sparrows.

Seems like that radiator is a whole bunch of money for little benefit over a standard "space-age polymer" replacement.

Thanks. It is still single row, like the oem. Welds look good. 10 year manufacturer warranty.

Thanks.

Yeah, the description is misleading. By the time I got the answers, I had already ordereded it. The description says that it cools up to 30% more than stock with a higher capacity. I had asked about mounting info, then bought it. Then asked for clarification about the description and yeah, it's basically a stock aluminum radiator, which isn't bad for wheeling since I don't have a rad skid.
Nice! I鈥檝e been considering the PCM fan kit for my 鈥06 TB. Let me know how it goes :)
The stock radiators are really much more robust that even the designing engineers thought they would be.

When they first came out, I figgered to be changing radiators on a yearly basis - but it didn't quite work out that way.

Honestly, that aluminum radiator is really only good for bragging rights.

EDITED: because my spell-checker isn't working and I was finger-typing on a make-believe keyboard.
I agree. I wish I would've saved the extra $100 and made a radiator skid plate. Oh well.
