you could get an aftermarket rad for about $150 and depending on your mechanical ability its a pretty easy thing to swap out yourself.

Removing a fan, shroud, a couple rad hoses, tranny lines if its auto, and a few bolts that hold the radiator in. You can easily do it if your slightly mechanically inclined.
