Exclamation Radiators

After doing some searches about rads. I actually looking into a GDI 3 row, but heard about their quality, and dependablilty going downhill. I am not sure what other brands or alternatives for rads are out there. Any ideas as to who other that GDI are out there that any know of that make good rads.

Re: Radiators

Modine also makes excellent radiators and won't break the bank.

I second the CSF radiator from Dirk. It looks good and I have herd nothing but good things about it. I got mine from Dirk through the guys at Carolina Rock Shop 2 day air so I could make it back to school on time. Funny that the day the radiator shows up the stocker stops leaking and hasnt leaked since so the CSF is looking pretty still in the box. (knock on wood, the stocker is going to leak now that I said that)

Re: Radiators

After going through 2 GDI 3 row rads, I went with a Modine 2 row. It cools much better and is MUCH better quality. The GDI 3 row rads have tiny little rows. Are 3 tiny rows better than 2 larger ones??????? All I know is, the Modine works much better than factory and GDI.

Re: Radiators

after the end of April.... good luck finding a modine....
Modine sold 48% of their aftermarket division to GDI

GDI will continue to make modine Radiators... BUT down in their Mexico plant....
meaning.... modine will soon have the same quality as GDI...
if your gona get a modine.. get one soon... youve got a month b4 theyre gone 4ever

Re: Radiators

The thing I like about my GDI is that if I accidently run a stick through it I can get a new one for free (if i make it look pretty first). Ah gotta love a lifetime warrenty from autozone.

Whaa? Proof? And only selling 48% would leave Modine in Majority control......Meaning it'll STILL be a Modine product. Made to Modine specs.

Looks like Modine AQUIRED all outstanding stock.
Modine also aquired TRANSPRO stock
http://www.corporate-ir.net/ireye/ir...ODI&script=400
I'm calling cahoots.

Call up 1800 radiator and ask them for a modine....
i went to that wholesaler... asked them (951) 784-6666... thats how they told me... 48% and theyre handing over assembly decisions to GDI. Modine is going to switch primarily to OE equipment.

O well... i got my modine a couple days ago... i guess we'l see in a few weeks wont we?

Re: Radiators

Sounds like you got fleeced.

http://www.modine.com/english/index2...e=News&lev1=17
Turning to strategic initiatives, the Modine CFO summarized the previously announced transaction to spin off Modine’s Aftermarket business on a debt-free and tax-free basis to its shareholders and simultaneously merge it with and into Transpro, Inc. (AMEX: TPR), a transaction expected to close in the second calendar quarter of 2005. As a result of the transaction, Richardson emphasized, Modine’s return on average capital employed, or ROACE**, and pre-tax earnings margin are expected to increase by about 1½ to 2 percentage points and 1 to 1½ percentage points, respectively, on an annualized, pro forma basis.

Transpro is NOT GDI. Not to flame, but just to clarify.
