guys, please don't fall for the pretty ebay add like i did for these TE27/TE21/TE28 radiators, the quality of the welds are poor at best, the fitment is way way off, i contacted them and now i have to wait for a refund and shipping back has to be out of my pocket for a refund.

this is BS, then after deeper research none of these radiators fit the TE27's, i stumbles across several adds that required mods to get them to fit. sorry but when i pay a premium for something i expect it to fit, maybe im asking for too much or my standards are too high.

their response was very nonshalunt like its a normal thing to refund for non fitment. im beyond pissed right now. if i would of known modification was required i would of bought a aluminum civic radiator for a fraciton of the cost and just made that one work.

sorry for the rant, just wanted to share

Sorry to hear about that man. Sounds a lot like the BRD headers that supposedly fit the TE27 body style when really they come in contact with the pitman arm. Hopefully the word gets out so no one else falls for this.

Do you still have the blue TE31?

I sold the blue drag te31 some months back to purchase a new 4 axis CNC milling machine for my shop. It's a long story... Lol

And the BRD Griffin aluminum radiators that supposedly fit the TE27...

If you come up with a good alternative, I'm all ears. I am in need of a good radiator...
