I’ve been thinking about adding LP9’s up front and would probably pair it with a larger radiator if I did. Anyone install an aftermarket radiator yet? It doesn’t seem like full race offers one for our gen 3 yet but mishimoto looks like they do. Curious how much of a pain they are to install.

Yes, Ron Davis Radiators in Az.
I put both an engine oil and trans cooler in the side tanks. I have them do this for my Pre-runner and the TT also.
I first build a full size mock-up out of 1/4" mdf to make sure all my fittings and hoses and ground lugs line up then send that to them to copy. Never had a problem. Pain is in the Mock-up build.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Ron, haha sorry this is a bit over my head, but are you saying you relocated the radiator to the fender? I am intrigued.

No I do not relocate the radiator to the fender, it's in the stock location.
The company I use to build my radiators is Ron Davis Radiators located in Az.
They build the radiator for me to my specifications with an engine oil and trans cooler in the side tanks of the radiator. I don't use off the shelf radiators.
