**Potential** GENI/II OEM "like" Radiator Replacement Option After noticing a slight leak in my 15 year old original radiator, I pulled it and brought it down to Albert at Indianapolis Radiator Works. He expressed some concern about the repairability and while a re-core is always an option ($400), I decided to check with my Viper Parts friends JonB & Chuck to see what my options were for a new OEM radiator. Seems the orginal is no longer available and that my choices were limited to a racing aluminum, a used OEM, or a custom built one off OEM like replacement. Not liking any of those choices (aluminum - not stock appearing, relatively expensive and some forum horror stories about reliability, Used - condition and longevity, Custom built - time & $$$) I continued to hope mine was repairable and thought I'd check Ebay in the meantime just in case. There I found X2Builders.com selling an aftermarket OEM replacement. After a short chat with Scott, I ordered one. It arrived the very next day. After unpacking (a 45 minute job as it was cemented into place with vast quanities of expandable injected foam!) I discovered a very OEM looking brass radiator, made in Mexico, with 3 rows of tubes versus the OEM 2 rows. A pleasant surprise. A/B comparisons showed them to be almost identical with only the drain plug, inlet and outlet tubes angles and tank to frame connections being slightly different, nothing that appears to matter. The studs are all in their proper places and dimensionally it's right on. Seemed to be at least at the OEM quality level. The X2 unit has 2 more lbs. of metal in it, 20.8 vs. 18.8lbs. I find that given that OEM is NLA and, while a recore is always an option, the idea of aquiring an OEM type replacement for slightly less than the price of a recore with as a bonus about 20% more cooling capacity, was too much to pass up. Turns out Albert was able to repair my OEM but the X2 is going in with the OEM headed for the attic as backup. Update.... I suppose I might have been premature in my glee. As you can see from the last picture, the inlet tube is not exactly pointing in the same direction as the OEM radiator. This is a problem as the hood hinge now contacts the tube and therefore prevents the hose from being installed. Probably not an easy fix. Anyone with ideas beyond removing the tube from the original and soldering it in the new? My end game is to have two viable radiators. To be continued... . . . .
