How is the rad on the way out??

To fit an upgraded rad you'll be looking at spending 200 to 300.

Best bet is a Koyo, as the cheaper ones are raelly an unknown quantity.

Here's an ebay price for a Koyo:

Or a cheap one:

AFAIK, Koyo's a re cheap stock replacement, not uprated.

Fluidyne are the most popular aftermarket rads for the Supra. They retail between 400 and 500 (Envy do them at 495)

Why upgrade, the stocker is more than adequate unless you're going for massive power.

:yeahthat: Mine coped fine with the Nurburgring, even the foot to the floor up the 10% incline for 3 miles bit, lol. Temps didn't even go above it's normal half way position.

thanks for all your help so the best way to go is just to get a new stock rad, wont i have the same problem with the top of the rad cracking with a stock rad

I guess it depends how much a Toyota OEM rad costs. I've no idea, but often the 'better performance' after market stuff is comparable (and looks shiny of course) ;)
