    Correct. Fuel does not lower your intake air charge temps.

    Did not see this post for some reason; however I now will refer people to their 3 row radiator for 99-04 mustangs. It is what I run now as I cracked that original radiator by not using mishimoto brackets.

    I have got my brackets on the shelf, maybe I should hurry up and get the on. That's exactly what I'm afraid of.

    This is just my .02, but I would not get any AL radiator but the mishimoto with the brace.
    I had a 3 core champion crack at the corners.
    IMO the Mishi brace is a must.

    I run a napa oem radiator (plastic sides) on my little NA 99...for now.

    I’ve got a brand new Mishimoto with the braces I’d sell.

    Ordered it because I couldn’t find anywhere to fix my stocker. Eventually found a rad shop and never ran the Mish.

    I did install it and you do have to adjust a few things but not bad and I think it would’ve given me trouble free performance.

    that's not a bad thing in my experience. i bought the cheapest chinese radiator for any 99-04 automatic gt i could find, because i could not find a direct replacement for the oem cobra radiator.

    but i have been running it now for coming up on two years with 15k+miles, and i have not had one problem with it. actually, it even runs cooler than my other cobra with the original all-aluminum terminator radiator. and i daily drive my cars (hard) in the hottest areas of the country.

    it won't win any pebble beach concourse awards for factory-stock originality, but it is functional and extremely effective.
