There are 100% Chinese radiators, like the Fluidyne and Mishimoto, and then there is 100% American C&R/Revan Racing radiators.

How can you expect someone you can blind fold with a piece of dental floss to make good welds on a radiator? Not to mention they use the WORST CORES KNOWN TO MAN. That's why if your radiator goes bad with a Mishimoto they send you a new one, no questions asked. They are dirt cheap pieces of crap.

Revan Racing's 4.6 radiator has the mounts for the transcooler where the Mishimoto doesn't because that would be too much work and engineering for the people that built the great wall.

OP, you are better off sticking with a stock OEM replacement. At least those are made in Mexico or Canada.............for now.

Revan Racing radiators are 100% American manufactured with proprietary NASCAR cores, and are proven to work better than any other S197 radiator on the road course.

- this is the GT500 version, but he also carries and sells the 4.6L version. Van's expert advice is only a phone call away.

You need a heat exchanger upgrade for your Whipple.

Come on man. Your post would have been just as good without the racism. These forums are better than that.

I'm going to go with the Afco aluminum radiator instead. USA made. I can get one for $250. They're typically over $500.

Be bitter towards those actually outsourcing. Not the dudes just applying for the open jobs.
