Has anyone installed an AFCO radiator with ac?

My AC works so I have no plans to remove it, esp sense I live in Texas.

Not really sure why you would want to use that radiator if you are keeping AC. The AFCO unit fits perfectly where the AC condenser lives. It would be an awkward fitment to put it where the stock radiator sits.
Just get a stock style unit when keeping ac unless you are doing some radical turbo/manifold setup and need things shifted.

I need a radiator that isn't as wide as the stock one.

I have a short route fmic and the routing of the charge pipe ins't the greatest.
I'll have to take pictures for you to see what I mean.

Good luck searching, Iím sure there is one out there that will meet your requirements. The scirocco is definitely for non AC as strokin said.

Personally Iím going with the Evo 3 radiator. Not sure of dimensions.

Quoting Defiant:

I ran a stock radiator with short route piping, I just had to shift it to one side a bit, sorry but this is the best pic I have from that setup:



I didn't have A/C at the time (full disclosure) but it did allow the piping to have room to go through without the radiator being in the way.

Thanks for sharing. I will look into shifting it like you did.
