I like your idea. I am going to remember that if/when I install one.gsrflyboy on Oct/11/07 said:he got it from a company that I think went defunct a while back. I took a spot weld bit and drilled out the spot welds and then used steel self tapping screws and it actually worked out great. It is in there solid as a rock and I have no aspirations of my car becoming a show piece, soo it works! It's pretty simple this way as you don't have to grind off your paint in order for someone to weld them on and my way is completely reversible with minimal work!
For the most part, it's because a civic sized radiator will not come in the way of certain headers and turbo manifolds, or even the turbo itself. For example, Headers like Highend extends out longer than others and will not fit with the stock size radiator. Also, when you go boost, there are certain designs (top mount, some ram horn, etc...) that require a half sized radiator.ferrariboy1989 on Oct/11/07 said:Why would someone want a civic radiator anyway? does it look cleaner? and wouldn't it affect cooling. It may be a dumb question, but i'm just curious
