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.

Floating Bracket Stabilizer System. High torque engines and body flex can cause radiator end tanks to crack or separate from the core, in order to eliminate this issue Mishimoto has engineered a patent-pending floating bracket stabilizer system that allows their radiators to "float" freely with out binding or cracking under stress.

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.

Great fit and finish

This radiator fit perfectly. The box it was sent in was very well thought out and it arrived with no damaged fins. The mounting brackets were well built and should isolate the radiator from vibration.

  • Stock should be fine but I have found on both my 83 and 2003 that upgrading is a good idea and things run much cooler as much as 10 to 50 degrees. These radiators help cooling much better than stock and I have had no problems and easy to install.

    Nice but not worth the money

    The fit and finish is very nice on this radiator, but doesnt cool any better on a warm day than the stock replacement radiator that was in the car . It does not have enough capacity to keep it cool at an idle in traffic it hits the exact same temp the $100 radiator did. I wish i would have spent the cash on something else . Atleast it come with a lifetime warranty.

    Install in stock 96 Mustang GT

    Very impressed by product construction. Only negative is drain. No tub similar to orig radiator to attach hose to direct coolant. Cleaner just to loosen bottom rad hose and drain from there. Installed nicely except required one mod. The bracket under radiator that holds the support rod for the coolant tank will not let radiator seat in bottom mounting holes. I fab'ed a small plate to move rod bracket rearward 2 inches and down 1/2 inch. Bolted existing bracket to fab'ed plate and then re-bent rod to properly support coolant tank. Also had to shorten upper rad hose at rad to keep hose away from drive belt.

    Great fit and finish

    This radiator fit perfectly. The box it was sent in was very well thought out and it arrived with no damaged fins. The mounting brackets were well built and should isolate the radiator from vibration. I have not driven the car a whole lot since installing this but before I put this on my temps would run around the "L" in normal with the AC on. I have not seen it climb past the "M" since installing this radiator.

    Poor fit, but keeps it cool.

    My Mustang blew it's 6th radiator right before I left for vacation. I left it at the shop and ordered this Mishi radiator for them to install. The shop said that it was too tall, and then said that they had to fabricate a new degas bottle support rod mount. It's in now, but it was a hassle. On the other hand, if it will help keep my car from eating radiators like popcorn, it will be worth it.
