    My original radiator does not have the 2 brass fittings shown on the left side. Will this still work, do I just cap them off?


    • The OPR OE Style Replacement Radiator is based on the automatic version of the radiator, which means it will have the two brass fittings for the integral automatic transmission cooler. When used with manual transmission vehicles, these may be capped off, plugged or left as is without issue.

    Is there any modification required for 03/04 Cobra? Seemed to come in contact with power steering lines on drivers side of car due to the plastic tank


    • The OPR OE Style Replacement Radiator should be a direct fit with your 2003 Cobra. You should not need to make any other modifications for a proper install.

    What is the cooling compasity of the radiator. How much horse power can it handle. How many cores is it composed of.


    • The OPR OE Style Replacement Radiator is a single core direct replacement radiator that will maintain the OEM cooling system capacity. This will be sufficient cooling for stock, and bolt on cars, but would not be a good fit for supercharged or turbocharged cars.

    Hello could you please identify the brand or manufacturer of this radiator? I'm considering purchasing this radiator to replace my leaking Radiator.

      Great Replacement Radiator

      This radiator fit right in place as a direct replacement for the original one. There are no instructions, but the passenger side bracket upon which the fan attaches is replaced by an included nut. Very easy installation. I would def. recommend.

      Works well, no leaks

      Great stock replacement, dropped right in to where the stock one was no problems, bolted right in fan fit and same with overflow tank, ran into no issues besides the coolant drain turn dial looked different than in the picture which scared me for a minute until I took a wrench to it to turn and it works just like it should.

      Great Replacement.

      The product was a direct fit. The only thing I had to do was remove the old radiator and place the new one in. There is no cutting or fab work to be done.The only thing that kind of threw me off was the two inlets for the automatic transmission coolant but once I went back and read that the radiator was for both manual and automatic I was fine. Product looks great and I have no complaints.

      perfect replacement, and super easy installation even for a newbie. I was kinda hoping it would've with new hardware. my old one still worked fine, but it's a nice replacement and gives me peace of mind. still working on reinstalling a reman engine so I haven't fired it up, but I have no doubts about it.

      Replacement for punctured radiator

      My radiator got a hole in it, and so I bought my replacement from American Muscle because of the good experience I've had in the past with their products. So far it works like it should, but I was worried about the transmission cooler lines squiring all my coolant out because I have a manual but I called American Muscle and they were very nice and helpful! Don't go to O'Reilleys or Auto Zone if American Muscle has it! Oh, and a iOS and Android app would be nice tho ;)

      great product!

      This is a good replacement choice for any mustang it fit right into my mustang no problem. my car automatically runs cooler. I went ahead and just knocked it all out at once, new hoses and new coolant runs alot better. another good job from american muscle. I recommend this to any mustang owner in need of a radiator if you cant afford mishimoto like me very fast shipping as well and install wasn't bad at all

      Great radiator for the price

      Purchased this radiator to replace the performance radiator that came in my mustang when I got it. The old mishimoto performance radiator that came in the car had split at the seams. My understanding is the radiator only lasted 2-3 years so I am hoping this one lasts longer even though I believe it is the same brand. Installation was very easy. Just remove the coolant reservoir, coolant hoses, the fan and then the radiator comes right out. I've had this rad for a couple months now and it works great. Temperature gauge stays right where it should. Shipping was fast as always, especially because I live on the east coast.

      Seems to work as well as the original. It does have the automatic transmission cooler line attachments which you can just ignore if you have a manual. (I had to call and ask what they were.)
