For 60 € you get a double row radiator completely renewed for your old one here.

We dont have those... Sad

No local rallyshops or so?

Rally life in Hungary is pretty much f*cked in the last few years, all it is about now is pure money washing... Banging head

Other option, (the worse IMHO) is to buy the s2000 rad and try to adapt it into the AE86, new brackets and stuff, and I bet you´ll still neet custom hoses to suit the AE86 engine bay.

Cooling wise it does make no difference, at all. In fact I´ve seen 2,2l drag EP9 Civics with turbos running the normal very small alloy rad. All you need is a good fan, might cost 100€ for one but its money well spend.

With the Koyo on my Corolla 1,6 16v I wont need to run the fans under normal driving conditions, even under light drifting it hardly reaches the 100°C, if I switch on the fans it immediately cools it down to 85 deg.

The outlets for the 4AGE and the F20C are on the opposite sides of the radiator, and thus I dont want to use long (and ugly) hoses with the AE86 radiator when the F20C will be under the bonnet. The costs are the same for the AE86 and the S2000 rads, dimensionally they are almost the same and custom brackets are no problem for my fabricators Smile

With the OEM AE86 radiator for the blacktop, I had some light overheating when drifting on a slow, twisty track on a VERY hot summer day, even with a SPAL fan...nothing serious, just some bubbling in the reserve tank...

If the S2000 rad bolts almost in it might be the better solution. Smile

You managed to overheat the OEM rad with a spal fan, now imagine a decent alloy radiator with the spal fan... problem solved.
