Packaging:

Radiators may incur bent cooling fins or small imperfections during shipping or manufacturing. A few bent fins or small dents and scratches do not affect the fit or the function of the part. Neither our 60 Day satisfaction guarantee, nor the manufacturer's warranty, cover these types of insignificant damages.

Direct Fit Replacement

Direct fit replacement radiator with core thickness that is equal to the OE radiator.  Other manufacturers make the radiator's core slightly thinner than the OEM to save money.  This decreases the overall performance and lifespan of the part.
