Radiators

Ok guys ive done a little searching and ive come to find:

Koyo 2 Layer aluminum $300
Koyo Copper series $200
Gp Sports 2 Layer S type $275

Basically i have a stock sohc radiator on my sr now and its all corroded and needs to go...Supposedly the copper one cools better but weighs more??? What would yall recommend i go with, i dont need anything to amazing because i think any of these will do a lot better than what i have, so do u think the copper one would b good enough or what are your suggestions...

Well... thas all you bro. You've done your best three, now pick one based on ur asthetic style/functionality... ish like that. It's ur ride bro.

If ur in an area where it's extra crispy in summers go with the copper. Othawise alum will do and save a couple of lbs to boot.

Im getting a new thermostat also, any recommendations? Is the oem replacement good enough or is the nismo one that lowers the temp really worth the money?

Hey question, Im in search of a good aluminum radiator that won't crack for my ka24e. Yes a SOHC. My stock calsonic cracked then my new radiator cracked as well. Is there any hope for my ka? Thanks
