    Fiero radiator HELP please!

    Fiero radiator issues

    I took my car on a short ride this weekend and discovered my radiator is leaking and is in need of a replacement. (bummer) What do you guys recommend for a replacement? I have a 3.4 DOHV motor installed and thinking maybe I should consider something with a little more cooling capacity than a stock unit. I can get a stock replacement for about $100.00. I also see ebay sellers offer 2 or 3 core units for $150 + as well.
    Any suggestions?

    I think there is an ebay unit by Champion that a lot of the Fiero guys are starting to use. Price was supposed to be pretty decent, too. I just read a post a PFF that someone was going to become a Champion distributor, just don't recall who...

    Go for the bigger radiator. Certainly can't hurt...

    I have a 3800SC with 4 speed automatic trans - use a stock fiero (brass) radiator with the integral trans cooler. i drive in los angeles in summer with the A/C on MAX and have not had a problem. If you want to spend the money on other things, a good stock radiator will probably do just fine.

    I have a four core copper radiator from Archie that has never been used and that I don't need, but I couldn't ship it for that price.

    Don, I might take it off your hands if you could drop it by Joe's for when he does my LS4 swap. Drop me a P.M., either here or PFF if you want to sell it and what you would like for it.

    Will
