Anyone have Fluidyne or Mishimoto radiators? Are you happy with it? I don't know which one to get.
I don't have either.....but I have heard great things about Fluidyne, they are probably some of the more popular for the hardcore racers. I know AM sells Mishimoto & I have not seen where they have had issues??? So, get the one that does the job & is reasonably priced.
On a side note, I have an aluminum rad that woud be considered an "off-brand" made by Mustangs Unlimited on my 1990 mustang & have never had a problem with it.

Mods: Roush M90 & a lot more...
I have a Fluidyne in the Saleen. No complaints, that and the fans are plenty to keep it at operating temp in 90+ weather. It was part of the Saleen Extreme package that the original owner upgraded to in the 289SC model.
Mishimoto is a 3 row and Fluidyne is 2 row. Wouldn't that make the Mishimoto cool better? I want to upgrade for the weight savings too. I'm also planning to get the Steeda tubular radiator support to shed even more weight.

Ah okay then. You can go with any of them then. Some will only work with Stick because they don't allow the stock Auto tranny cooler to be attached.
The other thing is make sure whatever raditator you go with has a mount for the A/C condenser. You do NOT want to use the Zip-tie things that go throgh the radiator and condensor to secure it to the car. Those fail and will cause problems. I think the MIshi one is that style. Don't know about Fluidyne. The FRPP one is OEM fit but only 2 core.
