        Will this radiator fit with a procharger supercharger since the intercooler piping leaves no room for radiator thi knees change?

        The description states it fits automatics; however, one of the reviews stated it did not fit his automatic and he had to return it. I recently purchased one but it is still in the box and not installed yet because I am waiting for my new radiator hoses to ship. I have a 2007 Mustang GT with an automatic transmission. Will this radiator work on my vehicle?

        • The Ford Performance Aluminum Radiator will be a direct replacement for manual transmission Mustangs, however Mustangs equipped with the automatic transmission will require an external trans cooler, as this radiator does not have a built in trans cooler.

            Well worth the investment

            One of the most beautiful pieces of aluminum welding I have ever seen. Shame it's not very visible when installed. As far as function , spent three hours driving in 95 degree heat , ac running, stop and go traffic, enthusiastic driving after traffic opened up, and the temp gauge never moved once. Very happy.

            The Best Radiator

            Right when you take it out of the box you know it was worth the extra few dollars. Runs great, keeps my Pony cooler than the stock radiator, glad I spent the extra money on this one!

            Works well, almost perfect fit

            The upper post for the radiator bracket on the drivers side is between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch off (toward the center of the car), which causes the bracket to sit crooked. I was able to bolt the bracket down, but just barely (three stars for fitment because of this). Other than that, everything went smoothly, and it cools my 427 Windsor much better than the OEM radiator did. I went from 210 on the gauge (on the freeway) down to 190-195. (5 stars for performance gain) A little advice for people doing this at home - spend the money on a proper vacuum assist cooling system filler tool (I got the AirLift 550000). You also need an air compressor (at least 13 gallon capacity) to make it work, but it takes less than 10 minutes to completely fill your cooling system with no air pockets. When you buy the tool, know that you also have to buy a 1/4-inch male air hose connector because the tool doesn't come with one. I selected a time to install of an afternoon because I had to remove my front fascia to get the radiator out (I have front-mounted dual electric pusher fans that prevented the radiator from coming out). Most of you will probably be able to pull the OEM fan/radiator out as a single unit without removing the fascia, so it will take you less time.

            A challenging install!

            100 aluminum and hand made in the USA! Whats not to love... The install! She may cost more then some others but don't past her up! This radiator is meant for road racing but has all the provisions for an OEM fitment. You will have issues with the condenser. The lower studs on the radiator to mount the condenser proved to be extremely challenging. I need to remove both AC lines to get enough room to mount everything correctly. This radiator is larger and eats into engine bay space but every OEM part will fit. Performance gain is quite impressive overstock. You will never think about removing this radiator once installed. If your a track rat or HPDE nut this is a must will notice the difference after a 10minute session. So now I have road racing cooling with air conditioning whats not to love!

            Beast Radiator

            The radiator wasn't as bolt in as advertised, but it wasn't too bad to install. A second set of hands is highly recommended. I had to trim a couple of hoses as well as a support on the air intake tube connected to the grill. I track my car and so far this thing hasn't even broken a sweat. My temperatures were almost normal (~213° F) while thrashing it for 20 minutes at a time paired with the boss oil cooler. Overall I'd say it is a good buy and it should last the lifetime of the car given how durable it is.

            Excellent quality but tight fit

            I was pleased with the quality of this Ford Racing radiator. The overall installation is not very technical however the real challenge is to put it in place....as it is twice the thickness of the OEM radiator the available space is very limited and you need to patient and find the right combinaison of moves.

            Ford Racing Aluminum Radiator

            Workmanship and fit is superb. Considerable more cooling capacity which is always a plus. The only thing it needs is a sleeve to fit over the location pins to fit the 2011 rubber mounts tighter. I'll come up with something to correct that. Would I recommend it, Oh yea...

            Nice upgrade from stock.

            This radiator is what is needed for a slightly modified drive-train in the hot Texas summer. The original Ford radiator with plastic ends was not cooling enough, and developed cracks where the plastic ends met the metal center. This Ford Racing radiator has an extra core, for better cooling. Its all-aluminum, welded design will not crack, like the stock radiator did. Plus, it add that 'cool' factor for car shows.

            A little more work to install than I anticiapted

            I bought this radiator at a much higher price than some other brands since I have an auto transmission and this was supposed to be a direct, drop in replacement, well that's not quiet an accurate description. I had to modify some brackets and really tear into the front end of the car to gain access. I completed the install in a few hours, which was much longer than I was planning since the description said drop in replacement! After the install I have no complaints though, keeps the motor nice and cool even here in the South Florida summertime sun. I would recommend replacing your thermostat while you have everything apart to get the most out of the new radiator. Also plan to adjust your inter cooler, if you have one there!

            Awesome Radiator for Supercharged Mustang

            I bought this radiator to replace the stock Mustang GT radiator in my 2014 GT350 (supercharged). I also installed the Boss oil cooler. While I don't have an type of accurate temperature gauge, the difference is so noticeable that I could see it on the dash temp gauge. With the stock radiator, the temperature gauge was always above the halfway point, and when you got on the car on a hot day, you could definitely tell that the stock radiator was struggling to keep things cool. After installing this radiator, the temp gauge is always below the halfway mark, and even when you drive aggressively, the temperature gauge needle never moves from below that halfway mark. The quality of the radiator is evident when you first see it in the box. High quality welds. And the thickness of this thing is what really jumps out at you. It's over twice the thickness of the stock GT radiator. I believe it's got 2.5 times the capacity of the stock radiator. It's hard to believe looking at it that it's a direct bolt-in, yet it is exactly that. I had the local Ford dealer install it, along with the Boss oil cooler and they did an excellent job. A bit pricey for the labor, but their work is guaranteed. Great product and peace of mind now when driving aggressively, that overheating will never be a problem.

            Keep it Cool.

            Not only will you be blown away as soon as you open up the box but once it is installed in your baby it will give you real peace of mind having the beast of an engine cool. I installed both this and the Ford Racing SVT Performance Cooling Fan. Living in south Texas where the average temp is in the high 90 every day, it is great to know the no matter how hard I push my car, it will never even break a sweat. I highly recommend buying this Ford Racing Aluminum Radiator; even tho it is pricey; it is worth keeping the factory warranty, just in case.

            very high quality construction

            you can spend awhile just staring at the welds on this radiator. the construction is spot on. it fits in the same footprint as the stock radiator. The stock rad is 1" thick, this radiator is 2.5" thick, so it doubles the cooling capacity.

            Cool

            The FRPP radiator is twice as thick as the stock one, and it holds quite a bit more coolant. It's very nicely made, and fits almost perfectly in the stock location. It looks good with the FRPP expansion tank, and it's really nice to know that I can pretty much run my n/a car as hard as I want (in Texas) without overheating it.

            FRPP Aluminum Radiator

            The Radiator was packed nicely in its original Ford packaging.It is a direct fitand does look good when installed. It isthe most expensive of all Mustang radiators and I'm a firm believer in this case that you get what you pay for. Instructions are general in nature, be sure to find as much info on the web as possible. It is much bigger and beefier than a stock radiator so you must take this into account when installing it. All in all I'm very pleased with the fit and performance. I road course and track day a couple times a year and had overheating problems with my stock radiator. The FRPP Aluminum Radiator completely solves any overheating problems you will have. I would reccomend it to anyone.
