OEM is $281.22 for what its worth. I have used some of Spectra's products and did not like them. You get what you pay for and there products just seems cheap and crappy to me.

Default Re: Which replacement radiator?

OEM lasted me about 10 years, rotten design with the plastic sides crimped on with plastic seals that dried up and crumbled...most radiators are all metal, soldered, etc...

All the aftermarket ones are pretty much the same design, just curious as to which brand to pick to replace mine for a reasonable price. And will hopefully last another 5 or 10 years...

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!
