Alright the radiator went out today on the galant with a big crack in the plastic and i was just curious if i put a honda radiator and a pusher fan on would it be sufficient enough to keep her runing cool? im not sure if its too small to keep it cool so i thought i would just ask before I drop 400 on a new one.


Thanks.

Is the koyo radiator that you speak of aluminum or just a stock replacement?

It's the small aluminum one. Something along the lines of (or quite possibly exactly) the one linked.

click

I'm fairly certain all of the half-sized civic ones are the same. Not sure, I bought it from digit. He probably knows more about it.

Install wasn't bad. Had to make a bracket for the bottom of the radiator, then used the stock pass. side rubber mount and moved the top mount. Stock upper hose works fine, and I had to do a little fiddling with the lower hose. I'll snap a few pictures if you'd like.

That was the original thread that got me turned onto the civic radiators. A suggestion to anyone purchasing a fan for a civic radiator or even oem is to use perma cool over spal or slim line.

I'm running a sicrocco unit and a passat fan. Its a two speed belt driven unit. one motor two fans. You can feel the air blowing off of it at the back of the car.

The fan motor from a corrado can be used and its not so long but just as fast. The radiators can be bought at jegs for $100.

Its never gave me a problem and cools fine.

50 and up here.

Also check for passat radiators and audi ones as well. I've seen passat complete units go for 200 or so on ebay not bad for a fan and radiator The passat ones are about 4 inches longer than the sicrocco. They still fit the galant but not with the 3 inch short route piping I wanted.
