Some "conventional" antifreezes on the market don't advertise that they are for use with aluminum. In fact, some say not to use with aluminum radiators. What is the proper type of coolant to use with the aluminum radiators (or even cylinder heads)?
Thanks in advance!!!

Most common brands and color coolants have been made compatible with aluminum heads and radiators as well as aluminum blocks and heater cores. The orange stuff was originally developed in the 80's, but it's since been proven that orange or green can be used with proper maintenance.

On an auto trans application, oil from the trans is pumped up to the radiator and then back to the trans. Because it is a sealed cooler, there is no pressure or coolant to worry about in a manual transmission application. So you can simply use plastic plugs, or leave them completely open.

These radiators come with the threaded bungs in the same location as stock, so you will just need to unscrew yours and then thread them onto the new ports and you are good to go.

From what i understand they are in fact manufactured in China, However i have one of them in my 91 5.0 and my car runs 20 degrees cooler than it did with the stock unit and the product seems very well constructed. For the price i think it's an excellent buy.
