Default Changing to an aftermarket radiator

My car is almost due for a coolant flush, and I figured it would be a good opportunity to go ahead and swap to a more efficient aftermarket radiator. How difficult is it to install a new radiator?

very easy.....unless it's a hard fit, and you'll have to do custom fit.

-take off the radiator cap. get an oil pan or something under radiator and unscrew the screw on the bottom of it to drain it all the coolant out.

-there should be 2 hoses (top and bottom) of it. unclamp and take those out

-the rest should be simple bolts and plugs for the radiator and fan that you'll have to take out.

there was a good thread on step to step howto do this....let's see if anyone can find it before me...

lol leave it, it's more then enough to cool anything. Unless you are going to be boosing and making serious I mean serious amounts of power, you won't need to get different radiator. You already got a dual core radiator it's not worth wasting your money on something that you don't need. Just flush and refill, and spend the money on something else.

I'm slowly prepping it for a supercharger, and I will not skimp on cooling.

believe me you are still going to be fine, even with supercharger. I would say that radiator is good for 300hp+
