    aluminum del-sol radiator, installed one for a friend a little while ago, same size and all, seems like all you would have to do is mount it up? anyone ever look into this?

    it looks possible to swap in, try it and find out!!

    1988 323 Station Wagon - KLG4 swapped
    1988 323 GT - B6T Powered
    2008 Ford Escape - Rollover Survivor

    1990 Festiva - First Ever Completed KLZE swap (SOLD)

    If no one from the future stops you from doing it, how bad of a decision can it really be?

        I have one in the BPT Festiva. I had to make custom mounts for it. I would have prefered to use a stock festiva radiator but couldn't due to my turbo being in the way.

          aren't the inlet and outlets at funny angles?

            I found sizes for one an a different ebay page... 16.5" x 14.25" x 2"

            not trying to hi-jack, but what about something from those bigger atv's and golf carts or even a bike? Think something like that might work/fit?

              I know some people have used the Civic radiator in swaps before.

                looks like a good upgrade to me, and would look very nice with a cleaned up painted BP

                  The top hose is no problem with the BP/BPT. I used a flex hose. The lower will be more of a problem due to the location and direction.

                    i used a del sol one as well and we had a radiator shop move the bottom oulet from pointing towards the engine, he moved it to the side so it points towards the fender

                        Or you can go to autozone/or where ever and ask if you can go into the back and check and see if any aplications will work without relocating something like that. Its what i did with the sephia radiator i have in my festiva.
