In addition to the front end parts I am going to be needing to put the #35 back on the track I need to replace the Radiator. I had a Koyo in it but wonder if the Godspeed rad I found on ebay is just as good. they are both 52 to 53 mm. Anyone have any experience with this. In light of my recent misfortune I am trying to stretch a buck.

I am aslo on a tight budget, and just installed one myself. Looks good and went in nice and tight with the stock fans. They also have a great 3 year warranty. Have not run it yet, but all hopes are high. I will replace the cap with a better one before I start running it.

I toasted my Radiator fan too, do you know if you can put the ac fan in on the right side and just plug radiator fan plug into the right side AC fan? would be nice if I did not have to buy a new radiator cooling fan too.

The Godspeed, Mishimoto and the CXRacing I bought all seem to be Chinese Koyo knockoffs. Mine wasn't polished but was $130 delivered. No tech here, just a fat downflow unit. Seems to keep the temps down here in the NE.

Now replace that intake with one of the straight ones and gain a few more hp.

my understanding is that the AC fan turns slower than the Radiator fan. So I don't believe you can interchange them.

I've used one for the last 3 years between two different Miatas and it's worked great, it's looking a bit beat up at the moment but still cools fine!
