I am looking at buying a dual fan aluminum radiator with dual electric fans off of ebay, store is called speed daddy, and they are made in China. Just wanting to know if anyone has bought one and/or reviews of these ebay radiators????

Thanks

My advice is to go with something more along the lines of 'proven' swaps. I bought an all aluminum triple pass crossflow radiator from summit for less than 200 bucks.

A ford taurus 2-speed fan will move more than enough air and can be had for very cheap at pick n pull junkyards or bought brand new from rockauto for about 100 bucks.


Thats my take on it, take it for what its worth. good luck

WEll if they are anything like the Champion radiators ( they probably are) sometimes they have defects, such as pinhole sized leaks. Cyngus I believe ran a few of those and all he had to do was weld over the hole. Not a major problem, but not something you want to waste time on normally.

Well, I went with the speed daddy dual fan radiator from ebay. I will run that and see how it turns out. I found some good reviews from the internet, so lets wish for the best.
