            Perfect replacement

            I bought this as a replacement for a cracked radiator in my 1999 v6 mustang. Fits perfectly and was an easy install. Took roughly 30 minutes to swap out. Love almost everything I've gotten from American Muscle so far.

            I'm always worried about items not fitting properly and being disappointed with the return process and customer service. None of that here. No hassles, perfect fit, the FIRST time!

            Perfect fit and lowest price

            There seems to be nothing wrong with it And it fits perfect . It was also the cheapest price I could find for a brand new one even from AutoZone or advanced auto parts or NAPA. Would recommend for anyone needing a replacement

            Trans Cooler internally leaking at 8 months

            I brought this replacement radiator back in March 2017. I thought the initial quality was pretty good and installed it with no issues. However It is now November 2017 and the trans cooler already went bad. My transmission fluid is now a pale solid pink color and my coolant is contaninated as well due to them mixing. Very disappointed, and to make it worse, somebody on here says that it is covered by mishimotos lifetime warranty, which doesn't make any sense as this is not even a mishimoto product. I called American Muscles customer support and was informed that this item does not come with any sort of warranty. Bummer.

            My 01 Mustang had started overheating and after finally tracking it down, my radiator was leaking and apparently was going bad. Swapped it out for this one, dropped my temps about 35 degrees (from ~225-230) to 190/192 and gave it a nice amount of extra kick compared to when I got it from the former owner. Can't complain! No more overheating and the car runs super solid. Slides right in without issues, perfect fit.

            Great Replacement

            The radiator fit just like OEM, the installation was a breeze and took about an hour and a half from start to finish. No modifications were required. This was probably the easiest thing I have ever had to work on or replace since owning the car. Definitely recommend.

            OE replacement radiator

            This product was very helpful actually. I noticed a big change in my engine being cool and also the car was able to blow cooler air from the A/C. Mine was about 16 years old before i replaced it with this new radiator. The product runs and functions well!

            Perfect In Every Way

            No issues at all with install. Works as intended. No Leaks. No damage in shipping. If you drive an automatic, this swap out is a perfect time to renew your transmission fluid with a drain and fill while you have the lower line disconnected. When refilling, there should be a cooling system vent plug up near where the thermostat housing is, V6's only. Undoing this when filling helps to burp the system faster. Only do this once when filling and system is cold.

            Mustang V6 Radiator Replacement

            This is a mechanics dream of a job. After taking the old Radiator out, it is an exact replacement. In have the time it took to take out the old one, this one went in and buttoned-up as it should. And, it really did took the over heating problem down. Nice job!

            99 v6 mustang radiator replacement

            The radiator fit in easily and seemed to be a better made product than the original stock one, aside from lower lines that went to transmission everything else came out easily and was easy install into the new radiator. After driving some time after filling with antifreeze mix it seems to be a smoother drive and runs slightly cooler than before.

            very nice

            had an overheating problem on my 01 mustang, my stock radiator looked nice(no dents, like new) but it doesnt do the job anymore, until I replaced it with this one, very nice, no overheating. I'm not a mechanic but I did the installation myself with some guide on the internet its a good product and fits exactly the same as the stock.

            Worth every penny!!!!!

            When comparing this radiator to a local or national (auto stores) selection it wins in all aspects. The quality is unsurpassed, heavier gauge aluminum, better assembly, and construction. Fit, OEM perfection! looks more precise than the stock one that was removed. Performance,, Outstanding!!!! The anti-freeze seems to have an easier path with less resistance of flow, warm up time also is smoother and not into the mid heat range as quick as the old stock one pulled off. And the best for last,, Price, EXCELLENT! for the same amount of money you can buy a lesser quality radiator anywhere locally or online but why??? Thanks American Muscle for offering this great product at an affordable price. Loyal Customer,
