A stock radiator will work just fine for most people - even with quite high hp.

Meh.


Why not upgrade?

I would take some measurements, and see if you can find anything that's close in size.

Why uppgrade when there is no need for it?

Upgrade because you either want the durability of an all metal radiator or you need something of a different size to fit a large turbo.

I get your point - but me and many others haven´t had any problems with the stock one , some pushing quite a lot of power.
And there is no problem fitting quite a large turbocharger either.
I would spend my money on making the car faster

Get a $500 NG900/oG9-3 header from him.



Geez, I sound like a Charles Schwab commercial "Talk to Chuck"...

I have been wondering about a new radiator too... I have a forge intercooler that has some clearance issues with the stock radiator. I was going to get a new one to help it fit easier. Looks like type 6 here... http://www.forgemotorsport.com/conte...ct=FMINT204UNI
