Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

I have had this radiator installed in my 99XJ for over a month now and did a review of my findings. For those on the fence or looking for more information check them out. So far it has been AWESOME. Best upgrade to my cooling system so far. Hopefully you have the same results I did. My Jeep specs are in the video description.

Just watched your in-depth review. Good to hear it worked out. I will keep this bookmarked for future references when I need to replace mine.

Check back next summer, when it's hot out.

I installed the radiator at the tail end of summer and ran it in the upper 90s in Phoenix. I do agree next summer will be the real test when it is 110 out. I was quite happy with how it performed when 98-100 though. Much better than what I previously ran.

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

I am presently rebuilding my 90 XJ, and looking to put an aluminum radiator in her. I don't know if I'm going to go with this radiator or one of the proven units that will cool a 5.7L V8. I have my eye on putting a smallblock Chevy mouse motor in the old girl in the near future, don't see a need to spend this kind of money on a radiator that wouldn't work.
