        Leaks like a sieve

        Fit and installation was smooth. Removal was just as smooth after 96 days. Started leaking from bottom seams at both corners. Fitment was good in the trash can as well.

        No runs, No drips, No errors

        The verdict is still out on this radiator, as we don't drive the car in the winter. So here is how it rolled out. This convertible Mustang GT runs beastly hot in the summers of Utah. Typically seeing the gage in between the A and L. So we decided to go all out and install a new SR radiator, Mishimoto 155°F racing thermostat, Edelbrock high flow water pump and threw in a new serpentine belt. The radiator install was a breeze. Everything is tight due to the increased width of this radiator, but fit without any serious mods. Had to trim a bit of the OEM fan housing at the bottom and reform the overflow tank rod to accommodate the increased width of the radiator. All very minimal mods and did not take any effort at all. Car fired right up and took it for a test drive. No runs, no drips, no errors! All looks good so far. Will need a follow up when the heat hits in a few months. Thanks American Muscle for all of the parts! they fit as advertised and that in itself is the reason to do business with American Muscle.

        Doesn’t last...

        I’ve been running this radiator on my stock Cobra for a year and a half and it’s already developing leaks. The fins are developing cracks on the sides where they can’t be fixed and it’s well out of their 30 day warranty. Should’ve picked up the Mishimoto.
