I'm about to purchase a Koyo aftermarket OEM style aluminum radiator for my hatch, and according to my sales contact he said that the radiator support will have to be modified slightly to accomodate the new radiator. He said almost all EF's have to have a slight modification to clear any aftermarket radiator from any brand. Is this true? If so, what modification is neccessary to make this a good fit?

in closing:

after finding out how much fabrication would have to be done to fit a half sized in there, I waiting another two weeks for the full sized application specific Koyo radiator. Yet, still to find alot of modification that still needed to be done to both the radiator and car. Overall, if you in the market for a trick radiator,drop the extra money and get a Fluidyne radiator. i hear they're direct fit with no modifications

Fluidyne is a nice raditor but cost a pretty penny but worth it. I pick up a half size DOHC Del Sol raditor new for $50 and got it mounted. Half size was because I planning to turbo and needed room for the turbo
