    What's the warranty going to be like from this new manufacturer?

    Manufactured in Canada or the US?

    well, the ebay radiator is likely the same chinese core that the us mfg are using. though i have boxed end tanks and not stamped, but that doesnt effect the cooling so doesnt bother me. honestly, since we already have a direct fit aluminum radiator available, why not work on getting something produced that we dont have? maybe the side mouldings? headlight whiskers? hatch? etc...

    I assume these won't cater to the automagic group?

    I might be interested depending on price. Do they come with electric fan set up too?
    Are these hard to hook up? Definitely save some horse power by getting rid of the clutch fan

    If not, run an aftermarket cooler. The aftermarket cooler will most likely provide better cooling anyway.

    Lotta Q's there - I'll try to answer them all. These will be made overseas, and as such, I will be the warranty control dude. I won't bother with in tank tranny coolers for the auto though - Joe is right about using an external unit for that. The point of me looking into this is the fact that not everyone can afford the Griffin now, and in these tough times, it's hard to be a car guy on a budget.
    The new rad will be a direct fit with the OEM shroud or the Adrenaline Motorsports fan kit.
    The core is not likely going to change in thickness due to the close proximity to the pulleys, allowing for fan mounting as well. Making it wider is not really an option at all w/o making the shroud fitment wrong.
    Trim would be great to have, and w/o letting the cat out, that is being worked on....
    Cheers, Canadian Phil adrenaline"at"gto.net
