Dual-core radiator into non-turbo?
Posted 31 July 2003 - 02:30 PM
I've heard mention of the dual-core radiator from the turbo EA82 models fitting into the non-turbo ones for a significant cooling benefit. This is something that I'm very interested in, as my Soob has a hard life of 12 hour drives at 85+ MPH hauling 500lbs or more of show display stuff for my team.
I have, however, heard that with certain A/C setups, the dual-core will not fit, and I want to make sure this is not an issue before spending a bunch of money on a new Koyo. I've got a '92 Loyale 4x4 wagon - how can I tell if the A/C condensor will get in the way or not. or is this just a myth?

I dont see how different A/C system setups woudl prevent a Rad from fitting in..and I've seen 3-4 different kinds...
But my question is...where are you getting this Rad? is it all Aluminium construction or what?

well if that car had PUGs and a white racing stripe down the side and about three mm of dirt it'd look like mine...
LOL I think I have the lowest spec L series subaru on the board

Perhaps it's just a myth? I heard mention of the A/C getting in the way just once, so it might just be a fallicy.
I'm getting the radiator from Performance Radiator in Everett, WA. They sell Koyo radiators, which are aircraft-quality aluminum and heli-arc welded. Koyo advertises 30% better cooling than stock, which is very significant. A friend of mine uses one on his high-boost 200SX and raves about it.
Thanks for the help and the kind words guys. Any further input?

Grease Weasel - How difficult was removal of the clutch fan? Is it absolutely necessary, or did you do it just for good measure? My 'Roo spends a lot of her life working very very hard, and cooling is of great importance to me, so if I can leave the clutch fan in place, it would be nice. I'm assuming that the electric fan is controlled by the thermostat - is the clutch fan? Or does it spin all the time?
