Damn texas heat... got a small hairline crack up top by the reservoir tube, not to crazy about reordering another plastic one. anyone recommend something else? alradco etc...

I would get the Alradco. The aluminum units are much better made than any of the oem-style replacements or the oem itself. These are pretty much a drop in replacement. The car will run cooler, especially in stop and go traffic and the electirc fans will run less often.

I have an oem rad for sale if you need one and don't want to spend money on an aluminum one

-That was a smart move, Bigtuna819. My oem was leaking so I ordered a Performance radiator, which lasted all of 30 days before leaking. Next, I ordered and installed an Alradco and have not had any issues. Peter produces an excellent radiator and backs it with excellent customer support. Just FYI, if you take the two tabs off of the top of your condenser it will give you an extra 3/4" of space and installation will be a little easier. Then just reconnect the tabs once the new radiator in installed. Good chioce.
