Had a Japspeed one on my r33 gtst, worked fine, fitted perfectly and lowered the running temps quite a bit. Good price too.

There are probably "better" rads out there but it was great value with decent build quality. If your on a budget you can't go wrong

Why is this in the how to section? Is it how to pick out the best alloy rad? lol

Sorry but I have no opinion on this subject as I have a factory rad that works great!

Guys have a look into TABATA brand from Japan. Its very great quality and perfect fitment, comes in different specs as well. I have one on my R and its absolutley great.

Sorry can't help with the agent who would stock it.

Japspeed dont have a specific one you need to fabricate the one on their website which is 100mm thick, requires removal of viscous fan and install of electric fan(s). Its also 80mm shorter in height and 10mm wider than the original, the extra width and thickness increase the capacity but its the fitting which is off putting.

So im going with what you guys say and looking out for a good deal on a koyo which can just bolt straight in.


Keep the feedback coming and also if anyone has one they dont need for a good price drop me a pm

Much obliged.

I wouldn't recommend any Ebay from any country per the concern of fakes. If you want to use GBP on a US seller then I recommend the following as I've had great experiences with them:

Vivid Racing (Georgia, lots of Jap parts)
Import Parts Pro (Texas, you can talk the prices down with this seller)
Edo Performance (California, good USA resource for lots of Jap goodies)
Z1 Auto (New York, knowledgable lots of Jap parts)

Its ok to go for a Koyo, just check what series it is, some are in plastic, thin or thick or alu / copper....
