Description

Mishimoto's "No Questions Asked" Limited Lifetime Warranty



Keep Cool. Whether running your Mustang hard at the track, the strip, or on the street, it's important to keep temps down to keep power levels up and protect your engine. If you're having trouble keeping things cool, a Mishimoto Mustang radiator has up to 25% more cooling capacity than your OEM radiator making it a must-have mod.



Lightweight Aluminum. Mishimoto Radiators are crafted of lightweight high-quality aluminum. Each radiator is hand-welded to which ensure a perfect fit and great underhood appearance.



Leak-Proof Design. Other aftermarket radiators have a design problem that causes leakage from the outlet to the overflow reservoir. Unlike other manufacturer, Mishimoto uses specially designed brass fittings to ensure leak-free performance. And all of their radiators are pressure tested twice before leaving the factory so you can install your new radiator with confidence.



Application. This Mishimoto Mustang Radiator is designed for the 1997 to 2004 Mustang GT, Mach 1, Bullitt and the 1997 to 2001 SVT Cobra models. Fits manual transmissions only.

Technical Note. This Mishimoto Radiator does not include a radiator cap. It requires reusing of your stock factory radiator cap.

Awsome radiator for a 99 Cobra

This by far is a great radiator upgrade from the stock OEM radiator in price and quality. The only thing is that my 99 cobra and I'm sure all other 99 & 01's will require a little modification to move

  • Yes, it will be a tight fit but it will work. Should take an hour or two to install. I would suggest having an extra pair of hands to help.

    Mishimoto Radiator

    February 19, 2008

    THIS RADIATOR IS AWESOME!!! installed on a 97 GT with a full PI engine swap that ran warm. NOT ANY MORE. not only does this radiator work GREAT it also looks AWESOME. Beautiful welds all around, great craftsmanship. Almost a drop in install. Unit slipped in and fans mounted perfectly. I did have to split the passenger side lower rubber bushing to accept the wider radiator. also had to cut a small notch in the upper 2 rubber bushings (razor blade). but other than the minor razor blade cuts this was a drop in install. . DONT SPEND $400 on a FLUIDYNE this radiator works just as well for half the price. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Awsome radiator for a 99 Cobra

    March 19, 2010

    This by far is a great radiator upgrade from the stock OEM radiator in price and quality. The only thing is that my 99 cobra and I'm sure all other 99 & 01's will require a little modification to move the ABS brake system about 2 to 4 inches back towards the engine that's mounted to the passenger side engine bay wall. This will have to be done especially if you also get the Mishimoto 12' twin fan shroud. Hope my pics can sow what I'm talking about.

    3rd times a charm

    February 11, 2010

    I posted back in April 09. Installed the new radiator; low and hehold, same thing happened again. The rows seperated from the side tanks. Mishi said they had fixed the flawed designed and sure enough they sent me a new one. well, it happened again. Hopefully this third one will not encounter this issue. P.S. stock engine

    "Direct Fit" Does Not Apply.

    May 25, 2012

    First, I think for the price, performance, and build quality coupled with a lifetime warranty this can't be beat. Period. However, "direct fit" does not apply. There are more than a few fit-ment issues a potential buyer should be aware of. Let me list the top five or so fit-ment issues for a 1999 Cobra: 1. Mounts: You can use them and actually the bottom mounts fit nicely. The top mounts 'fit', barely. Once bolted in they are stressed and putting a lot of stress on the rubber top mounts. 2. ABS module. For models with an ABS module you can either install it and live with the lines being in contact with the cooling fan mount, you can drill more holes in your frame and move the entire ABS unit back 2-3 inches, OR you can do what I did, simply (and carefully) bend the line inwards towards the module. Once done I have almost an inch of clearance and it took only 2-3 minutes. 3. A/C suction line specifically, both lines are affected. With the stock condenser and mounts in play, the radiator rests against the lines right as they leave the condenser. There's no bending these. You'll need to either re-mount the condenser, re-mount the radiator, or what I did.. I ordered a new condenser just to make sure I had max airflow and the way it mounts allows you plenty of side to side movement to adjust. BUT this still leaves the suction line. You've pushed out the radiator, hoses, fan, etc, about 2-3 inches with this new radiator and this hose no longer fits in the same place. CAREFULLY bend the switch and charge port into a better position WITHOUT putting stress on the welds. I did this by using two 3/4 inch wrenches, one to isolate and the other to gently bend. 4. Hoses: Yep, when you push the hose outlets out 2-3 inches then your top/bottom hoses become 2-3 inches too long. You'll need to cut these to fit and NOT just push them back with extra length which will kink or fold. 5. Fan connector loom which includes the AC switch that connects to the A/C suction line. You've pushed it out 2-3 inches and the loom is now too short. I was able to free up just enough extra length from inside the frame supports near the fender.. 6. Cooling fan. It fits surprisingly well to the radiator. The bosses are welded in the right place and this part goes well. However, you've pushed the radiator out 2-3 inches and there's a lot of small hoses, connectors, etc.. to now create clearance issues. You'll need to spend some time with each individual line to move/bend/fit it so there are no more clearance issues. 7. Any piping, hoses, wiring looms.. be sure you have 2-3 inches of extra room so this radiator can fit properly. Overall I think this is a great product, but if you want to do this right and not have issues later.. then you'll need to fit this properly and account for those 2-3 inches where it pushes the radiator outwards. I also took this opportunity to run new hoses, thermostat, expansion tank, SC piping, etc, etc.. Overall I'm very pleased. But none of these parts were really "direct fit", they all required time and thought to effect the best fit.

    Can't beat a good deal

    October 02, 2010

    Well after researching online this radiator is going to be your closest price to the plastic tank OEM radiator. On average the Mishimoto price was only $60 more than the stock replacement, but at the same time Mishimoto beat the competitor aluminum radiator price by almost $200. Not to mention free shipping from American Muscle! As long as the quality wasn't sacraficed for the price this is a great deal! Installation was simple on my '00 GT There was a little modification to the fan bracket to help squeeze between my A/C lines and the bigger radiator. Plus moving the ABS bracket back about 1 inch was required.

    Killer!!

    August 20, 2010

    Kickass radiator, double in thickness compared to the stock (03) cobra radiator. Installed in about an hour 1/2....Gave it 4 stars only because it was such a tight fit some modding had to be done, and new holes had to be made to hold the reservoir in place; And of course, super fast shipping!

    Mishimoto in a 03 cobra

    July 19, 2012

    I installed this radiator in my 03 svt cobra. There were minor fit issues with the abs block but all you have to do is take the bracket off the block and notch it so it moves closer to the engine. After that the install was pretty straight forward. Install took a couple hours but was really easy. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone that needs a new radiator but I would make sure you buy the mishimoto radiator brackets to give the radiator some room to move around.

    It works

    July 06, 2010

    I bought this radiator because I have a performance engine and the stock radiator is too skinny IMO. It looks nice, but you really cant see much of it once you put the fan on and all. Seems to work, however I have only driven my car for 65 miles. That was 65 miles in decent heat though. Anyways it fit fine, I dont know what others are complaining about. I didnt have to modify anything in my 2000 gt.
