    Default Radiator options?

    ok i have a non stock radiator in my 86 now, i think its an ae82 i have forgotten.
    basically asking what everyone else is running, and i want to aim towards a car i can easily get new/aftermarket parts from eg s13, r32 etc.

    making top rad mounts is easy, but i would be hoping for something that will slot into the bottom mounts without to much drama.
    photos would be great too

    cheers

    yeah i know about that,
    looking to get something aftermarket like a koyo but figured if i could get something bigger from another car +alloy koyo that things would be better.
    thinking s13, r32, etc

    I've used the Rad out of a Camry, they come 2 core stock, and it's bigger than the 86's. I know it's the V-6 model, I dont remember the year though. I think it was a 1996. It's been awhile.

    st162 rads are really good. I bolted the st162 bottom mounts to the front of the 71 and use the top ones bolted to the rad support. Comes with twin thermos with a good shroud never seen it get hot.
