    Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m checking out a way to keep your ride cool, all while making a dramatic visual improvement under the hood as well, talking about these Mishimoto performance radiators for your Mustang. Mishimoto has become one of the industry leaders in terms of performance radiators, this direct factory replacement is a great solution for an old or leaking radiator. Now some of our customers have mentioned that this rad has been their cure for their motor running a little hot when adding different performance mods, especially superchargers which can notorious for making any motor run hot. This radiator has been designed to keep your street or strip Mustang much cooler thanks to their unique design, which allows a 25% increase of cooling capacity over your stock radiator. These radiators are manufactured from lightweight aluminum, feature leak proof brass fittings, and are all hand welded to ensure top notch quality, and a perfect fitment. On top of all that they also feature a limited lifetime warranty, no questions asked. The install may be slightly more difficult than bolting up that new cold air intake, but honestly it’s not that bad, think of it as a giant oil change. The first step is you need to drain all the coolant out of the factory radiator, but you want to make sure you have something large enough to hold all that fluid, we recommend at least a 15 quart drain pan. Once you’ve done that, yank the hoses off, then unbolt your factory radiator, removing it from your engine bay. Once you’ve done that, reinstall the Mishimoto in its place, reattach the hoses, and fill it with a 50-50 mix of coolant and water. That’s it, install should take you about 2 hours from start to finish. This would also be a good time to check out Mishimoto’s performance radiator hose kit, not only will they hold up to the heat and pressure better than your stock hoses, but they’ll also make a nice visual improvement under the hood. Every gearhead knows that heat is one of the worst enemies for performance, it can drain power, hurt your fuel mileage, or even damage your motor. So if you want to help your Mustang keep its cool whether it’s on the street or the track, then you’ll definitely want to check out these performance radiators from Mishimoto

    Keep Cool. Keep temperatures down to keep producing maximum horsepower whether it's on the street or the track with a Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator. When you're running your Mustang hard, engine temps can spiral out of control, draining precious power and even causing engine damage. A Mishimoto Mustang radiator has up to 25% more cooling capacity than your stock radiator to keep things cool and running right.

    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 manufacturers, 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.

    AmericanMuscle Recommends. This radiator is a perfect combination with Mishimoto's Silicone Radiator hose kit for your 2005-2012. (Add on option above.)

    Application. This Mishimoto Mustang Radiator is designed for 2005-2014 V6 & GT, 2008-2009 Bullitt, 2007-2008 Shelby GT with manual transmission. Does not fit the Shelby GT500.

    Mishimoto's "No Questions Asked" Limited Lifetime Warranty

    Technical Note. If you have an automatic transmission, you would need to purchase the required Mishimoto Transmission Cooler from the drop-down ordering options above. May require custom work for proper installation.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Does this radiator require more coolant than the stock one?

    • Yes, this radiator is slightly larger than the factory style currently in the car, it would be recommended to add and check until the DEGAS bottle for the radiator fill is to the full mark with the car hot and cooling system bled.

    Helpful (2)

    Can you use this with stock radiator hoses?

    • The stock hoses will fit with the Mishimoto Performance Aluminum Radiator, however, since the Mishimoto Radiator is slightly thicker, it will push the stock hose back just a bit.

    Does this radiator have more capacity than a track pack radiator?

    • This Mishimoto Mustang radiator has up to 25% more cooling capacity than your stock radiator (Including the Track Pack Edition) to keep things cool and running right.

    If i buy the mishimoto automatic transmission cooler will i be able to use this radiator?

    • Unfortunately, this item is not compatible with the Mishimoto automatic transmission cooler that we carry on our site as this part will only work with Manual transmission Mustangs and the transmission cookers we have will only work with automatic transmission Mustangs.

    Helpful (0)

    What’s the weight different between this radiator(mishimoto) and the stock one?

    • The Mishimoto will actually weigh slightly more than the factory radiator. You're looking at around a 5-10 lb difference.

      Perfect fit, works for automatics, too.

      I wasn't sure about buying this radiator for two reasons: 1) I'd never used any of their products and nobody I knew had them, and 2) it said "manual only" and I have a built 5R55S. It was only after talking with my uncle, who's been building cars, hot-rods and working on exotics all his life, that I paid closer attention to Mishimoto, as he recommended them. I don't take anything he recommends lightly given what he works on and his experience. The radiator came in and looked great! I was expecting to have to fabricate some kind of mount for my stock transmission cooler (I run a compound cooler setup with the stock cooler in line with an aftermarket Derale cooler to keep my built 5R55S under control). Immediately after taking it out of the box and bag I saw that it had exactly the right mounts already on it for the stock trans cooler! I get that some radiators for automatic cars are a combined unit with the trans cooler and radiator as one unit...but that's not the case with the S197 mustangs (at least) so listing this as "manual only" was confusing at least. I almost didn't buy this radiator because of this. As for the radiator itself, it went in perfectly. It doesn't have the bulky extra plastic on the sides sticking out so it was even easier to get into place than the stock radiator. Only one of the holes (the top driver-side condenser hole) was off by about half the width of an M6 bolt, but that wasn't anything difficult to correct. I got this radiator because I had to completely rebuild my coolant system among other things. As it stands I'm still putting the car back together so haven't run it yet, so I don't have any feedback on cooling performance. I have no reason to suspect it would be any less than the stock unit at the very least. Very nice drain plug and fittings. One thing I will say is that upon arrival the radiator had a tiny amount of metal flake and "fuzz" inside, but no mechanic worth their salt would think of putting a new radiator into a car without flushing it first anyway.

      Buy a Radiator Comb also.

      When I recieved my radiator it looked as if it had already been out of the box once or twice. a few places had bent fins on the cores and I had to comb them out. Other than that this radiator is very nice.

      Better than stock

      Was pretty simple install, it’s a little thicker than stock but fits like factory. Was able to refill with the same specs of 3 gallons of coolant and it keeps the car cooler! Defiantly recommend if you have to buy a new radiator anyway, just spend the extra hundred and get what works and is durable!

      Nice product

      This is a good choice when upgrading your radiator I'm pushing a little over 600hp out of mine and she liked to get a little warm every now and then the factory radiator that come in the 11-14 is so tiny if your planning on any heavy mods I would recommend this guy for you

      Good replacement

      I have had this radiator in for almost a month and so far no issues. It definitely cools better than the stock radiator. I would definitely recommend getting some replacement mounting studs to save the headache. I would definitely recommend this radiator to anyone looking to upgrade looks as well as performance.

      Radiator

      Radiator has a larger fluid capacity than the stock one. Install took a couple of hours, due to having to slightly modify the A/C mounting tabs, and the cold air intake tube. Overall it works well.

      Great for the Street, ok for the track

      After experiencing very high oil temperatures at an HPDE in my 2013 mustang GT, I decided to upgrade the cooling system, this helped, but unless you remove the AC condenser and the upper grill, it simply isnt enough to keep the big 5.0 from cooking. Teamed with a new oil cooler, my car now runs perfectly. This is a nice item, but not a one shot solution for track cars.

      Excellent upgrade and replacement.

      Love eveything about this radiator. The packing was superb not a scratch or dent on the radiator even though the box looked like it was hit by a dumptruck. It was a bit of a squeeze to install after 30 minutes of fidgiting it and cursing I had to remive the refrigerant and separate the driver side condenser line to get the lower mount through it.
