    Fenix Radiators - anybody used one of these?

    Yeah, most of the radiators got re-cored in the mid 90’s and it was common practise to upgrade it. Thought it was from 2 upto 3. Could have been 3 to 4 but either way you don’t wont to go back down a core...

    re-registering a vehicle

    I think you will find that unless you buy them as personalised plates there is not much you can do to secure them. Also, if the car has been issued white plates at any time in its life you will never be able to register it with the older black plates. If you are that concerned the best bet is to buy them as personalised plates and either have them remade as black plates of do it yourself.

    Fenix Radiators - anybody used one of these?

    Check to see what the quote is for though. From memory the G1 radiators were only 2 core and we used to upgrade this to a performance 3 core. It was 20 years ago so my memory might be fuzzy but it’s worth double checking. As you will know, heat kills Rotaries...

    Fenix Radiators - anybody used one of these?

    I think I have mentioned this before but: Fenix and other cheap Chinese radiators have a 30% failure rate. All this means is that if you fit one to your car don’t ten go out and drive the full length of the country. Fit it, run it up to temp in the garage. Do a few laps of the block. That way if it fails your are close to home. If it doesn’t fail immediately then you are probably all good to go. Other things to know about them is that they normally require some modifications to fit correctly. We put one in my mates RX-8 and other then a wee jiggle to make it fit he’s had 40,000kms worth of trouble free motoring. Also, if it is one of the 30% that do fail they will normally swap it.

    It would be nice to have a small collection of Japanese tin together.
