Upgrading can be an easy thing to do. I've managed to get everything I have by selling old hardware for newer.

Yeah, CLR doesn't even take the waterspots (lime) off my shower door.


The trick would be removing the residue without ruining the radiator.


I'd say muriactic acid, but that might dissolve the radiator.

Well, Gods bless you--I'm not sure about you, but I'm somewhat bull-headed.

Have you looked at buying a heater core from Napa, Autotown, etc. I think they are like $20 or so. I don't think that is an area you want to skimp on. You could make a shroud, pick up four fans, and have it done for $35. Looking at doing this myself. Good luck.

oh trust me, i have looked into this since i first created the idea of a W/C system. the reason i was thinking about the junkyard is that i saw a transmission cooler in summit mag, that looked extreamly promising. for now im still sticking with the pa120.2(the .3 is really hard to find). I have actually hit a road block though on pump selection. what i mean is the danger den dd d5 doesnt look as good as the swiftech mcp665. Anyone ever heard of Eheim? i found one of their pumps that uses a wall outlet, but runs a nice 600 gph.

Don't get me wrong--if one has the space, I think there is little downside to having a huge radiator. I was just concerned with getting it cleaned.

Hmmm... maybe I'll start a different thread on huge radiators.

*Tranny* cooler!?


Come on man, you're talking junkyard wars here--look around!

Forget the heater core, I'm thinking *radiator*.


Has anyone tried just using a full size radiator? I'm wondering if that would keep water temps so close to ambient it would become a non-issue, with performance limited only by waterblock and pump. And it might even work with no fans...
