Tonight after taking a look under my hood I noticed that I had coolant sprayed all over the place. So I guess that my radiator has started to leak (a problem not uncommon w/ tegs
). Anyway I was planning on replacing it w/ something better than the cheap ass OEM radiator and was thinking about a fluidyne radiator. Here's where my question is: I have read somewhere,trying to research fluidyne radiators, that because of the larger size of the cooling core the OEM fans cannot be used because they just dont fit. For this reason, Fluidyne also makes superthin fans to accomodate this smaller area. But when I was looking on NOPI, there is no mention of these smaller fans and it says that it is a direct fit radiator. Does anyone know for sure if this radiator is truly a direct fit or is it just an oversight on NOPI part not to mention the thinner cooling fans?

NOPI FLUIDYNE

If you guys have any other suggestions for aftermarket radiators or where to purchase online...Feel free to chime in!!

fluidyne's are expensive and geared toward performace engines that make a lot of heat. unless you've turboed, i think you'd be wasting money. look here for some economical alternatives.

Ummm...Absolute Radiators offers a Koyo radiator which is 350.00 plus 70 for the smaller fan...What radiator were you referring as a cheaper alternative?

OK, I looked on the website which does not list the Fluidyne for the integra but I did contact them and they had them in stock for 320.95+shipping. Pretty good price compared to other places. I also ordered the 9" thin fan as well for 70+shipping. Gotta keep the AC!
