    N/A = single core
    Turbo = dual core
    All aftermarket OEM style replacements I have seen are dual core.

    Euro is overpriced for what you get.

    As far as aftermarket, everything I have ever seen is a "custom" installation in one way or another. Find something that fits how you want it to, look at what others have done (vertical mount, etc), yadda yadda.

        No differences in mounting.

        One of the reasons there is no "direct fit" replacement for our car is that demand for one is non-existent. The stock turbo radiator is better than most people will ever need, even with more than double stock horsepower. Oh, and they are $125 shipped online; you can't beat that.

        If you really want to spend your money on a radiator... Mark86t has a custom unit in the stock location, and lots of people use a small afco in a vertical mount to same on room for intercooler/intake piping.

        I'd suggest you buy something useful with your money, but what do I know?

            2 things what's afco? and where do you get it online for $125 because i work at a car parts store and i can't get it cheaper than like 140 because nobody really makes them anymore ESPECIALLY the turbo one (the turbo rad is what i want)

                I just got one from carquest for 125 plus tax. Dual core. Advanced was 160 and Napa was 170.

                    I have received a single core aftermarket (by mistake), so don't assume they are all dual core. Dual core is all I ever use.
