Just did the install CSF rad fits perfectly!Anyone else done an install yet? Need additional hardware?
I'm pretty sure I used the bolts that held my factory rad skid on. Shortened one or two of them I think...I'll measure their thread pitch and length but it's the very common size used through the vehicle. For example same as the ones holding our headlights in. I reused ones I had sitting around the garage.
The radiator alone will not lower your running temperature - you will need to change the thermostat to accomplish that. I believe some owners are installing the 370z thermostat? Mine runs right where it did before with the Calsonic, about 195 degrees - this is with the all aluminum CSF radiator installed.Can anyone confirm the coolant temperature dropped after installing the radiator? I've been reading a lot of aluminum vs copper radiator. Seems like they all say copper rad cools better than aluminum, but aluminum rad is lighter... Lighter is good, but I need the cooling part more.
This is not true.The radiator alone will not lower your running temperature - you will need to change the thermostat to accomplish that.
