Question about Radiator, Please help...

Hello Bros, I have a '99 four-door LS with Auto, non-vtec b18, i was wondering, the radiator is finally going bad after 150k, if i buy new, is there a difference in radiators between integras with auto and integras with manuals? also, new radiator should i buy one with cooling fans, or just swap the old ones on? thxs

Yes, there is a difference with the radiators for an auto, vs a manual. The automatic radiators had another internal core that was used to assist with transmission fluid cooling. If you have an automatic, make sure you get a radiator for an automatic.

Additionally, you can just re-use your existing fans and shroud.

There is also some differences in how the fans mount depending if you have a SAK or a denso radiator. I had this issue on my 97 LS automatic, one of the fans didnt mount correctly, since it was a budget beater for me, I ended up using zip ties. But I would ensure you pick the right replacement radiator based on the fan mounts.

On my 2000 manual, the denso radiator I bought ended up being a perfect fit.

Another note on the radiators, at least with my experience with advance auto, i'm not sure if this is the same at other parts stores....but AAP doesnt offer the manual transmission radiator anymore. They all come with the reservoir in the bottom and the two ports for the tranny lines. I tried to block them off with some caps but i couldnt find anything anywhere that would fit the threads.
