          • yes, i didnt describe the photo shop i would like to see the sharp bit under the indicators just rounded off,, and sump gard is a must, my work mates at supakat to make the flat plate with the bend up the front to glance any lumps,if mine is ok it may fit yours, watch this space, if you like it you can have one at cost,

                Should be OK shaun. If you look at MTEC conversions website, they recommend 1.6 corsa / nova rad for C20XE conversions on corsas. You will also have more air flow through the clubman front and grille.

                • I was gonna get one of those for mine.
                  Please let me know what you think of it when it arrives, seems cheap for a rad.
                  Any chance you can throw a ruler at it when if arrives too?

                  • I've had a cheep rad and a slightly less cheep rad (fiat chinq on my car) from him. The really cheep ones have big round tubes in the core and the coolant gets through them very quickly reducing their efficiency. The slightly more expensive ones have twin smaller flat tubes (sounds right in my head, can get a pic if you like). They have more surface area so they restrict the flow a little more and dissipate the heat more efficiently. My mate ran the cheep one, fan was on a lot. Swapped to the slightly more expensive one and the fan only came on in traffic.

                    If you are not happy, he's OK with returns iirc.
