Default Need a source for an Aluminum Radiator (2 row?)

Hi,
My Zuk Radiator being original is about shot and looking to get an all Aluminum radiator I would like to get a two row but don't want to mod anything to make it fit...... will it fit behind the stock fan and in front of the hood latch?______ What's the best online source for that in all aluminum for under $200
Joe

TT, RR, Lowrange , ETC. Pretty much any of them can help you.
You will pay more for it but brass is king when it comes to cooling.... research it....

I have been hearing so many stories on the advantage of aluminum but i'm old school and figured brass is best like you say. My radiator now is all brass (tanks and all)...... Hmmm maybe i should just have it re-cored if they still do that today?

Unless you are running some sort of modified engine arrangement, a stock radiator is more than adequate for your needs (and a lot less expensive too). I don't see where you'd benefit from anything else.

I don't know what year and model you have, but check...

Thanks Max..... That was a really good link and i saved it for future reference. I ordered an all aluminum radiator Last Night from Genesis for
$90 with online coupon and $8.50 shipping so i thought that was pretty good. My old original radiator stays very cool on the bottom half so time for an update. I agree with you a stock one would have been fine as the only time i got my temp up above 1/3 was when it's screamin down the interstate for my 8 mile run to the trails around town it never went above 1/3.
Thanks again for that good link
Joe

That appears to be an excellent price on that radiator. Obviously they are being made in mass production in aluminum now. Good info!

I get up that way on occasion. We've got friends there (Fort Mill) and the Charlotte Auto Fair twice a year is another reason to travel up.
