Always nice to see a manufacture chime in. Makes me feel like spending some money on a Mishi Rad also, I have been eyeing them for a while.
Thanks for your input on the forum!!!
Thanks for the kind words Gregg!
my one question i have is about the stupid plastic clips i need to remove while removing the stock radiator. I was watching the install video on youtube
I noticed none of the clips were replaced, so i guess it's safe to say to leave out all the plastic stuff i remove? and as for the fan shroud there is only 2x 10mm bolt holding it onto the radiator?
actually nevermind. i guess those 2x 10mm bolts replace the crappy plastic clips?
Because of the increased thickness of our radiator, the factory upper air diverter does not fit without some help. We include an extender bracket and hardware to install the shroud. Once you have the kit in front of you, it should be relatively easy to figure out where it goes. If you do need some assistance, feel free to contact us and we can provide further information about installing the plastic shroud with our adapter.
The electric fan shroud uses four mounting points to mate properly with the radiator. The two lower mounts slide into brackets on the radiator, the upper mounting points use 10mm bolts.
LOL.... I saw that video too. That radiator looks pretty banged up. Too many fingers poking at the fins or something.
It can be a challenge to film/photograph a radiator core. Any minor bend on the fin is easily seen from certain angles. In addition, simply rubbing your finger across the fins can bend them slightly. Fins are constructed from a very thin material, meaning they are rather fragile. Slight bends, like those seen in the video, are very unlikely to cause any concerns in terms of cooling efficiency. More substantial fin damage can result in performance decreases. The radiator in question was in and out of the vehicle a few times for test fitting, which resulted in some minor bending, nothing to be concerned with.
When packaging our radiators, we are sure to protect the core from any potential damage from the shipping process.
