aluminum radiator

an aluminum radiator is probably a bad Idea. Stick with replacements from Modine, and you'll be fine.

Aluminum radiators have a tendancy to corrode over time without ritual maintenance. They are also less "flexy", and can't take the abuse of harsh vibrations and big hits (like going wheeling).

I run aluminum radiators in my race cars, and Modine radiators in my street/strip/tow vehicles. Usually, the modine is a larger/thicker radiator with much better cooling properties. In some of my cars i can acually just run the larger Modine radiator WITHOUT a fan... in 110 degree weather... with all my accesories... idleing.
