i got me a 91 ef, and i need a new radiator. i would like an aluminum, but the only direct fit ones on ebay are $270. no thanks. i saw alum radiators for 92-00 that said that they were direct fit and only cost $100. now i dont care if i have to make a bracket or two so one of those will work, but will these be to tall?

has anyone used one of these on their car? how is the quality?

if you have one of these radiators for the 92 and up on your 91 or older civic, please tell me what, if any mods you had to make. pics would be awsome and rep points would be given

fyi, that price is not bad...i had to spend over $350 before for a radiator for my wrangler & it wasn't a direct fit. i had to reweld the inlet neck on the rad.
from the pics i've seen w/ the eg rads in a ef, it doesn't look good because of the gansta lean...unless you're will to change the support w/ aftermarket or do some extensive mod to oem support.
good luck

The $40 Ebay one works well, fits ok, the mounts for the fan were a little wierd but it works ok, cools WAY too well. Anyone want it? ;)
