Hi
I havw to get a new radiator for my st185, and i want to get a aluminium one.
I saw the mishimoto that cost around 270$, and found others on ebay of unknows brands for 140-160$.

I want to know if some body know if there is a functional diferences betwen those radiators, and which one will fit better on my standard st185 with a/c and every thing

Thanks

buy one with a 40mm / 42mm core if you want to retain stock fans etc

55mm may cause more problems than it solves imo.

I went with the massive 56mm cores and I love it, though it's a bit of a pain during winter in my DD. Only real downside is that you need to buy a new fan as well, AC shouldn't be affected by any rad.

Which fans did you buy? I'll need to look for some when I install mine as well.
