Default which aftermarket radiator?

whilst my engine is out i will be wanting to replace the now 12 year old radiator, ideally with an uprated one.

which are the best ones to go for? and please dont recommend mishimoto as the recent reviews on here of their quality/customer service means i would put any of there products on my car if they were free of charge.

thanks in advance

OEM is as good if not better in cooling capacity the only problem over time is the plastic end caps.

I’ve used Toyo sports and japspeed in past even then eBay specials all in all same heavy duty but do raise under bonnet temps imo

then again if it was me id go for the 42mm aluminium item off eBay aswell instead of the genuine item as I did on my brothers Impreza
