Go-Autoworks.com has excellent radiators at a very reasonable price I have ran one my race car for 2 yrs now and it works flawless. Some of the ebay warehouse rads I have seen leak like a sieve after a couple months.

It's generally not worth it. Most of the eBay units are good. I ran one in my 92 Si with no issues at all. Cleaning our a radiator that is seriously gunked up can actually make things worse if you dislodge all the crap into your cooling system.

if you just want to replace the radiator, not looking for performance, read the seller's feedback, and buy it. its just a replacement for the stock radiator...

Step up and get the dual core. I've had both and the all aluminum dual core is constructed much better.

i've got a 1" single core aluminum with plastic end tabs ebay model and its ran fine for years no leaks. i had the same issue old motor clogged the old radiator with oil and i would prefer the thicker single core over the smaller dual core.

your best bet is the goautoworks though its got aluminum end tabs so it'll last longer and i believe its thicker then the rest for cheap!

clutchmaster wants to sell me an OEM 5th gen radiator for 38 bucks shipped...

two issues:
1. will a 92-95 radiator fit my 6th gen?
2. i am apprehensive about buying a used radiator...
