Default OEM Radiator - TOYO vs. DENSO


I cracked my radiator today. Planning on buying one from the dealership. Anybody know the difference between the radiator (toyo) and radiator (denso)? Denso is a bit more expensive maybe due to the material it's made out of? Just want to clarify and figure out what's the difference before I buy, unless anyone else has suggestions! Thanks.

sorry sir. but i said OEM not aftermarket. koyo makes AFTERMARKET radiators smart guy. they aren't from the original manufacturer. if you go to a honda part website, there is clearly TWO different radiators--TOYO and DENSO. please be less ignorant next time you post something.

ADD to the solution, not the problem.

you can also add this coolant filter and have a bullet proof system:


install:

in the link above there's an email link for musselman in texas, called the guy and he doesn't sell it anymore..just ebay has it.

sold on ebay:

just make sure you order the right size if you buy one.

well to figure out which radiator you have, just look at the fan blades. using the pictures provided by honda, you can see how each fan is shaped differently. mine turned out to be a toyo, which was like +$50 more Click the image to open in full size.. heh oem stuff is expensive!

thx...dealer radiators are very durable


that filter is very easy to install and simple but very effective...for being a piece of plastic and a few other pieces $65 is kind of pricey but unless you can whip something together quickly that's just as effective and ease of use then you'll be waisting more time than what that filter is worth I think. a trip to home depot may help me put something together but if I can't find anything there then I'm sure gonna order one for their asking price.

new radiator + evans coolant + coolant filter = radiator that should theoretically last the life of the car, unless of course you smash it up..lol
