    So a MkIII radiator will or will not drop right into a MkII?
    I've got access to a few "parts" MkIII's with various aftermarket radiators and wouldn't mind a little extra cooling on the MkII if it'll drop in as-is?

    No, Its not a Drop in Radiator, You have to Fabricate some top Radiator Supports as the Stock ones dont line up.

    What type of MKIII Radiators do you have Access too?

    Well, Im running a stock MK3 radiator in my car now and I didnt Modify the Bottom Mounts any. What I did was bend the Bottom radiator Holders out so that they fit around the base of the Radiator and the Nipple on the Left Side fits directly into the Spare between the Left mount. You have the Use the MK3 Top radiator Supports as there is No where on a Stock MK3 that you can Attach the top brackets too. Its a Easy Fab job though.

    Get the mounts from a MK3 Supra, Put the Radiator into the car and ensure that the left Bottom radiator Support has the noch in it. Line up the MK3 Radiator top supports in the Correct position on the Top of the Radiator. Drill a Small hole into the Frame so that you can Slide a 12mm Bolts through, Put a Nut on the other Side and Tighten the Brackets down. you might have to Push the Radiator down a Tad but that comes with Streching the lower mounts out. Most People remove the Stock MK2 mounts all together. You will have to get a Grinder for that as they are Tack Welded in place.

    Pretty much all of them are Core Sizes but they will all fit.
