My big package showed up! Mizu radiator, hoses, fan shroud, and slim fans. There are a few bent fins, can I just bend those back with pliers? Regardless I got a great deal on this stuff and absolutely love it! Great quality!
Installed some red LED's in the gauge cluster, love them! Should look great paired with my AEM digital gauges I'll get in a few months. Ended up cutting the evap line under the car behind the passenger cabin. Pulled the bumper off and deleted the windshield wiper fluid reservoir, squirters, and lower intake chamber thing from the stock intake. The radiator is draining as I type so I can pull that later or tomorrow. I'll be deleting the ac this weekend as well since the radiator will be out of the way. Yay! Picture tim3z!
I was wondering about wiring the fans. I just pulled ac, if I press the ac button will the second fan turn on still? Or should I run my own switch or even wire it into the other fans harness? Just looking for some insight/opinions.
All of the ac stuff is out of the bay and I put in the new serpentine belt. Tomorrow I am going to buy a tension gauge and set the belts correctly. And I'll probably buy antifreeze and install the rad and new hoses. Some pictures of crap.
Bunch of crap and tools. lol
Bye bye AC.

Overall thickness is 2.47" and core thickness is 1.97". I went with it because I got a great package deal through a guy on preludepower and I know this radiator setup worked well with and fit with the turbo setup I am installing.
