And still hideous as ever.

$60K doesn't buy you taste! Looks like my son vomited a box of crunch berries all over it.

The same guy had a Rx7 that made this one paint job look plain. That one he had over 100 into.

A few of the 510s R Us clan and others had those exact radiators at Summit Point his year and said they worked great in their stock L16, semi built L20Bs and NapZ installs. Only mod necessary was shimming the radiators mounting point to keep the radiator from bottoming on the front fascia.

They're all from the same source, so just find the cheapest+shipping to your door. As Lou mentions, there are a couple threads here documenting how they fitted it, since it isn't a bolt-on.

If I were doing it now, I'd cut the brackets off, bolt them to the car, put the core in place, then weld it up to fit, eliminating the spacers or foam or whatever you end up using. But that's predicated on you having (access to) a TIG.

Don't mess around. Just get the Koyorad one. Bolt-in with a couple spacers (I used extra manifold washers).
