Description

Mishimoto's "No Questions Asked" Limited Lifetime Warranty



Keep Cool. If you're planning on running your GT or Cobra hard on the street or track, your engine can get too hot, losing precious horsepower or even harming your engine. Before you end up doing permanent damage, upgrade to a Mishimoto radiator. A Mishimoto radiator has up to 25% more cooling capacity than your stock radiator to keep engine temps down and power up for maximum performance and peace of mind.



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 1996 Mustang GT or Cobra with manual transmission only.

Technical Note. Fits manual transmission Mustangs only.

    Junk

    August 10, 2011

    When I first installed this radiator, it worked great at first. Then it started leaking from the welds after I had it only for three months. I was very disappointed after reading all the reviews on here and shocked that American muscle would sell a horrible product like this.

    Amazing Support From Mishimoto!

    March 26, 2009

    I bought this radiator over a year ago, and was extremely impressed by it. It sprung a leak recently though, and I was worried because it was out of warranty (Mishimoto has a 1 year warranty and I had bought it 14 months prior). But they replaced it for free with no trouble at all! Mishimoto not only delivers a great product, but their customer service is exquisite!

    nice radiator!

    April 29, 2008

    Ok, I just put in this Radiator on my 1996 Mustang GT. What a great product. Not only does it look great but it really works too. Noticed a large difference in cooling on my car. Plus didn\'t have to modify a thing. It really does just bolt on, and you can even use your stock fan. Well worth the money! Driving in congested Cali traffic on a hot day isn\'t a problem anymore. Great mod for us \'96 GT and Cobra guys.

    Save for a Fluidyne

    July 17, 2011

    Started leaking after a couple months, and was completely dead after a year. The solder they use is cheap and deteriorates rapidly, the hose mount OD is undersized so the hose needs to be so tight the clamp is getting ready to cut into the hose. Also, the gasket they use on the drain plug deteriorates with heat and will leak, like everything else on this pile. Shoulda paid the extra $70 for the Fluidyne, I just wish americanmuscle.com carried that brand

    Satisfied

    May 16, 2010

    I recently installed this radiator b/c I could not get my water temp in the normal after rebuilding my engine. This radiator works great. It keep the engine running cooler than the stock radiator. A must have for any modified mustang.

    cool cobra

    July 24, 2012

    I just had this Mishimoto radiator installed and my Cobra has never run cooler. Even idling with the a/c on in very hot weather the gauge does not go past the r/m on the gauge and then drops down quickly again. I kept the stock fan and it works just fine. The increased coolant capacity really helps. Hint: you must have the coolant pumped out with a vacuum system and then refilled the same way. This prevents air pockets which are dangerous to overheating on this block. You can not simply pour in the coolant.

    my stock was bad

    March 10, 2012

    My old raadiator didn't work this well, and this one is guaranteed to not leak. Uses your stock fan, looks good. My heat indicator doesn't even make it past the middle. Very good buy

    leaking after 2nd year

    June 02, 2011

    Really liked this radiator at first, but now has developed a leak after the first year of mostly sitting in my garage. I'm gonna have to pull it out and take it to a specialty shop to fix it. other than that when its not leaking it works great.
