    Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with a way to keep your ride cool all while making a dramatic visual improvement under the hood as well, I’m talking about these Mishimoto aluminum radiators for your 94-04 Mustang. Mishimoto has become one of the industry leaders in producing quality performance radiators for just about any vehicle you can think of, from bone stock daily drivers to hardcore professional race cars. These direct replacements are a great solution to an old, damaged, or leaking factory rad, or for a heavily modded or forced induction car, where the cooling system just can’t keep up with the increased cooling needs. The Mishimoto will help keep your street or strip Mustang much cooler by using this 2 row core, which is going to allow for a 25% increase in cooling capacity next to your stock radiator. Every Mishimoto radiator is constructed using durable lightweight aluminum, features leak proof fittings, and are all hand welded to ensure top notch quality and fitment. On top of all that, every Mishimoto radiator is backed by a no questions asked, limited lifetime warranty. A big feature with the Mishimoto is their patent pending floating bracket mounting system, that eliminates a major flaw in the factory mount design. Because of the Mustangs torque the front of the car tends to flex under load, which can sometimes lead to a damaged radiator. The floating brackets attach to the side of the radiator, using these rubber grommets to absorb any movement, in addition Mishimoto has added breaks to the top and bottom header plates, that allow the radiator to flex without being damaged. Getting this installed may be slightly more difficult than installing say, a cold air intake for instance, but honestly it’s not that bad. Think of it as a giant oil change. Before getting started you will need something on hand to hold all that fluid, in this case we recommend having at least a 15 quart drain pan on hand, before you start draining your fluids. Once you get all the fluids drained, remove the hoses from the stock radiator, unbolt it, and remove it from the engine bay. Reinstall the new Mishimoto in reverse order, reattach the hoses and fill it with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water. Doing all this should take you no more than 2 hours. Any gearhead knows that heat is one of the worse enemies of performance, it can hurt power, damage your fuel mileage and worse of all 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 one of these Mishimoto performance aluminum radiators, right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    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.

    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 1997 to 2004 Mustang GT, Mach 1, Bullitt and the 1997 to 2001 SVT Cobra models. Fits manual transmissions only.

    Mishimoto's "No Questions Asked" Limited Lifetime Warranty

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Can you use the stock radiator hoses with this radiator?

        • This Mishimoto Performance Aluminum Radiator can be used with the stock radiator hoses, however, since the core is thicker you may find that your original hose may need to be slightly trimmed.

        Does it come with mishimoto's limited lifetime warranty? This and other mishimoto parts?

        Why won't it fit an 99 to 04 v6? Almost no choice of aftermarket rads for my car, could I make it fit with light modifications? Thanks

        • Mishimoto designed this radiator to be a direct fit replacement for the V8 model Mustangs and the V6 would be slightly different. You may be able to modify this to work with your V6, however, we have not tried to make this work in a V6 to see what modifications would need to be done.

            2002 GT Mishimoto radiator

            This looks like an excellent high-quality radiator that came well packaged a little more difficult to install than expected but actually no problem for an average backyard mechanic. This thing is like three times the radiator of the original

            Fit like it was actually designed for this car 01 Bullitt. Heat problems since I installed a KB sc. So far this seems to be the cure, and it looks great.

            Worth the money

            Prior to purchasing this mishimoto radiator, I was in a back n forth with champion radiators. 3 times returning and receiving new radiators I decided to try something different. This mishimoto radiator has held up to my standard and best of all no leaks and having to deal with returns. Product is definitely worth it

            Awesome

            I love it! I have to say. It was an absolute pain to put in. The bracket on the passanger side rubs the ac lines. Couldn't get it in with the bolts in on the passanger side for the bracket on the rad. Left the bolts out and put them in after I got the rad set in the dowls. Not gonna lie.... It kicked my butt for a good solid hour just putting it in. From taking the old put and the new in, took about 3 hours give or take.

            Quality is great for N/A Cars!

            This is a well made radiator that is definitely awesome for an N/A mustang but it WILL NOT FIT if you have a Vortech supercharger installed. I found out after trying to cram it in there and finding out the piping will not fit with the radiator in and then getting the fan in just isn't happening. The radiator is awesomely make, its heavy (Quality) its light (aluminum), but do not try to put in if you have a supercharger. Its too wide and I could not get mine to line up and go down all the way. Needless to say I have a brand NEW Mishimoto radiator for sale now.

            Good/bad

            First off I have to say I love the quality of the radiator there is nothing wrong with it as long as you were running n/a in fact the only issue I have with it is I run V2 Vortech Supercharger and the radiator and supercharger piping does not go well it makes you have to forces the hood closed because of the where the inlet is for the upper radiator hose just thought that an aftermarket radiator being as high name brand as this would support basic bolt on mods that's the only complaint other than that love the radiator

            Didn't Leak

            It's thicker, cools better, and doesn't leak. Little tight, but there's room. Install is a breeze. Cools my M112 supercharged factory 2v making 450whp on 93 pump. I'd recommend this.

            Dissapointed

            My radiator arrived with a dent in the right tank. I made the decision to go ahead and use it because I wanted to run my new engine build. However the quality of the construction is what lead to my decision. I have no doubt that had I informed AM it would have been taken care of. Worked out great.

            Quality Product.

            The product itself is great. Great looking and fit as promised. Very easy install. Only reason I gave four stars is they do not include any instructions. I had to rely on the reviews of others on American muscle and I was able to download instructions from American muscle that made the install easier. For the price they should include vehicle specific instructions.

            Great product but not much change

            Great look and fit, does the job. I did not notice a difference upon install. My 97 Cobra still ran just as hot, even coupled with Edelbrock water pump. It was not until I had my tuner cut down the cooling fan kick on time before I actually saw my engine run cooler. I'd try the tune and thermostat change first. Great supporting mod but won't change the fact that the SN95s are going to run HOT.

            Excellent Upgrade

            It was time for me to replace my radiator after it failed on me. After reviews and comparison, I decided to go with the Mishimoto radiator. Excellent product for price and quality, package was very nice. Took a few hours to install, the only problem I had was that the supplied bolts were slightly too big for the sleeves/metal collars, but I was able fix it. Now I drive with confidence knowing my cooling system operating very well in this sunny weather, along with the Mishimoto radiator lifetime warranty. Highly recommend!!!!

            Radiator replacement

            Great product, fit and Finnish was top notch in my opinion. Install was interesting, I had to relocate battery temporally and sneek the radiator past the AC lines on the passenger side. Can be done just have to be patient. Once it's installed I've noticed the temp is more consistent when doing 1and2 gear shenigans for a prolonged amount of time
