        Direct replacement for the original. Went on easy - take your time when doing this. I've had it installed for a few weeks now - runs without issues which in my book means great.

        Too many issues

        Based off other reviews, I'm not sure if I got the wrong radiator or if this was a QC issue, BUT this was not a direct replacement in the slightest. My first issue came when I was moving the OEM fan to this new one. Although AM provides new hardware, it did not fit as expected. Upon comparing this replacement with the old radiator, I noticed there were no holes where the brackets went - meaning the provided brackets could not sit properly to allow me to screw on the fan. As I figured this was only a small issue, I decided to just drill into this new radiator and create some clearance. It worked, however when I placed this new bracket on, I soon realized it didn't match up with the fan and I had to - once again - drill into the radiator to properly mount the fan. Upon mounting the radiator, I noticed the radiator mounts did not sit properly. I double checked how the radiator was seated in the Mustang, and despite not seeing any issues, the mounts will not align properly. The radiator is secure, and I would honestly give this a 3-star rating IF it at least did its job despite the nightmare install, BUT upon driving around a couple of times with this new replacement - I'm seeing there is a leak that no amount of tightening will resolve. I'm sure if I didn't drill into this thing AM would honor a replacement, or refund, but after my experience I could not recommend this product. Hopefully I'm the only one who experienced this - I've included pics to help aid my poor description of this issue.

        It’s great

        Great radiator! price is cheaper then going to your local auto store. I’ve had it in for about a week or two now and I haven’t had any problems. I installed it myself and I’m not a mechanic it was fairly easy.

        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.

        perfect fit

        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
