Blown Radiator

Got to do a trans flush, and replace the radiator.

Just make sure you are a Nazi about checking that Mishimoto for leaks. They either leak or they don't and when they don't they work very well.

Much better but you're going to pay more. This is because the Mishimoto is a knock off of the Fluidyne. I've got one in the 2000 that came with the car in 2000 and it still looks new. Its huge too btw, big enough where I might have issues routing intercooler piping. We'll see...

Looks like things are going along nicely. Any idea when it'll be road worthy again?

Glad it all worked out.


I always tell someone who wants a fox body that it is a labor of love and get ready to bust a few knuckles, sweat it up and drop a lil blood.
