5 Stars   SVE aluminum radiator 1996 GT 4.6L
By on 4/14/2014
Radiator looks quite nice, too bad you can't really see it once installed! the installation took longer than expected. "direct fit" might be a bit of a stretch, it did fit but it took alot of coaxing. I have run the car in the driveway and it appears to run cooler. Do not have the car on the road yet to fully test it as we are still coming out of winter in upstate NY but i'm sure it will be a big improvement over the leaking original radiator!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

After 6 days I can say that this radiator works as advertised. My 96 GT used to run very warm but not in the red and has always slowly leaked coolant until recently when it was losing a gallon every 2 week. Now I haven't even seen the coolant light come on. Not once. The temps stay in the middle and sometimes go a tad over but I believe that is when the stock fan isn't running. Installation wasn't really difficult but it did take longer than it should have not by any fault of this product. The coolant reservoir is held on by two studs and they would turn with the nut and I tried everything I had but I couldn't prevent it so I just bent them out of the frame by rotating them in place with a socket. Reinstalling them was no problem. The frame wasn't so bent that it couldn't still hold those studs so all is good. Now, the upper radiator hose does rest against the a/c line but it's not stressing it so neither will I.

5 Stars   Great Product & Affordable

Obviously I was in the market for an all aluminum radiator seeing as how I've already gone through two of the regular one's with the plastic sides. They don't last very long here in Arizona especially if you race from time to time and let me just say when I put it on my 96 GT on the road I could tell it provided better cooling since for the most part the temperature wouldn't go past the halfway point during the winter season. This was just one part of my order from here the rest included a new water pump, intake manifold, thermostat, upper and lower radiator hoses, and even the heater core hoses all which I purchased from the site and I wasn't disappointed. Great customer service.

5 Stars   so far so good

I installed this about a week ago, fit perfectly. As far as the better cooling, I'm up in the air about that. I used to have a mishimoto 3 row aluminum radiator installed in my 96 cobra. after 2 of them kept leaking, I switched to this brand. I will admit, when I upgraded the factory single row to the 3 row, I did not notice much difference in the engine temp. It helped only slightly. The biggest difference came when I changed out the factory water pump with the high flow edelbrock. Its too soon to know the quality of this radiator yet, hopefully it holds up, I'm tired of swapping radiators in this car. Although I can perform the job fairly quickly now.

3 Stars   Nice Radiator.
By on 7/19/2014
I bought this to replace my leaking original factory radiator. The radiator looked great, but the fit wasn't so great. I had to relocate the left upper radiator bracket(drill new holes)and reposition the right upper bracket to make it fit. Otherwise the upper radiator hose would be up against the A/C line. I understand it's a aftermarket radiator, but it should have fit a little better than that.

5 Stars   Awesome radiator

This radiator is a work of art: polished and the perfect replacement for the factory unit. I pulled the old one out and dropped this one in. No problems and the car runs cooler than with the stock unit.
