all aluminum radiators for ST185's *update*

Postby Denver_whiteST185 » Fri Jun 09, 2006 6:04 pm

thanks to chris, i finally got a radiator that i can send in to get a custom all-aluminum one made. Im sending it in tomarrow. I need to know whos in on this deal. im looking to get them to make it about 1/2" or so oversized toward the engine (for those who are keeping your a/c) and probably having 3 cores instead of 2. The inital price is going to be around $500, but it could be cheaper if we get a group buy going. the only modification i think you may have to do is to get a thinner fan to replace the bulky stock one (ATS racing sells them). Who's in on it.

I'm in..but it depends on when i'll have to buy it. Don't have the funds right now, but if it takes them a little while, i'll probably come up with the money then. A set group buy price would be nice...could you ask them about it?

Bill somthing or other - talk to Chris O - he told me the guy has the specs on file and can make them to order.

Not saying not to go ahead - just giving you a heads up. I might even wade in on it - that ST205 Koyo I got is a friggin nightmare of a fitment problem.

Come to think of it you said thanks to Chris - might even be talking about the same guy.

If chris o is the guy with turbocelica.com,then bill is the guy at ron davis radiators. they are actually the guys that are going to make the radiator for me because they need a model to take specs because the ones on file aren't good enough to make one.

Is it going to be stock sized or oversized. Ron Davis is also made in the US.

http://www.rondavisradiators.com/Radiators.htm They make it. One of the members here sent a All-Trac radiator there and I think got it oversized 1/2. They still have the template, I emailed them about 6 month ago about it. $550 and 6 weeks.
