I have it, and am very happy with it. fit and finish were very nice.
It is about 3/8" narrower than the PWR if I remember correctly, which also meant that I did not have to trim the ends of the fan blades.

My interest is in road racing, and one thing I found is that with a big radiator and a smaller overflow tank used with an FMIC, my overflow tank overflowed after 30 minutes of hard driving. I'd supose that would be the case with any oversize radiator.

Hope this helps

A couple of my buddies here who have PWR radiators found that the tips of the fan would contact the fan shroud, and ended up trimming the edges of the fan blade a little so that it would not happen. Not a big deal really..

I went with the Koyo because I got a really nice package deal with my FMIC stuff as well, and the PWR would have been much more expensive.

i had a koyo on my 300zx and it was a terrable radiator didn't cool better than stock and the radiator cap mount is all F**ked up so it doesn't seal all the way and causes more problems than they are worth. Don't buy one go with pwr they are good.

From what I hear, the fluidyne is just the best one out there. Plenty of capacity and it fits in the stock location. Just get some redline water wetter and you'll be taken care of. This info comes from some VERY prominent figures in the supra community with cars that do warp speeds, so its not just some smartass from Jersey talking out of his ass. :D

Are these "prominent figures" road racers, or do they go 1320 at a time ;)

I am a DE driver (aka road racer), so I flog my car for long times - sessions lasting up to 45 minutes, heavy on the throttle for long periods. The bottom line is that you will be happoy with the PWR, Fluidyne or Koyo. But when I was looking, the Koyo was least expensive. PWR has the highest capacity of the 3.
