Red Raspberry Even with the hotter running t-stat I have never seen the fans come on this summer due to temperature. Set for around 200F IIRC.

MZ777 mine runs at ~180 most of the time due to running LO speed fan... It's been hot this summer and still is, so I don't mind really but again, just as last year and the year before - a fan controller is yet to be installed... I am fixing to switch tunes, so hoping that would solve the fan issue.

Red Raspberry I've been meaning to add....

I changed my t-stat this summer. Now it runs at 187F. Apparently the other one had grown lazy. Even though it ran at 180F it must have been leaking.

FS "cold" OEM t-stat.....

MZ777 2.5 years later my CSF is still going strong... Don't have any doubts it will be just fine for another 2.5 years.

Disclaimer: no, CSF did not pay me to say this....

It's a V6 radiator in a 2L. It dropped right in place no modification needed for mounting it.

Thumb5 Yep now I get to buy radiator #3 . F This

Red Raspberry Glad I got the Koyo. Never had a problem and it even got the bottom hit by some solid object and dented it a bit. Installed 8/2011

Same thing that happens to most of the aftermarket crap, leaks where the core enters the end tanks. Common for 350/370z guys from 5 seconds of research. My ISIS leaked the same way but it atleast gave me enough time to drive it the rest of the season. The CSF one went fast, and with fewer miles, probably only 10,000

Loving my CSF rad to this day. I've also had ISIS even before Mishi but the only thing is - it went straight to garbage after opening the box. It looked like someone pieced 5 junk yard radiators into one.

MZ777 1 year since my last post and just wanted to say that my CSF works just great! No issues whatsoever. I am so glad I tossed that Mishi garbage away...

I know this was not addressed to me but I'll just leave this note here for the record in case if something goes wrong on my end.

Thanks for the offer but I'll pass. I'd rather not go through all the trouble and shouldn't have to especially from an "ISO:9001" company. I found a solution and can make it work.

I informed CSF of my situation and have had no response, never expected one in the first place though.

MZ777 Mishimoto should just be banned from this forum IMO for the sh!t products they sell... All I can say is good luck bro. It took me to create this thread, multiple screenshots to show the logging and quite a few phone calls and emails. After all that I said never again... If I were you I'd demand the money and not worry about the replacement cause it won't be any better. Might as well return the intercooler while you are at it. I am not a hater, but if they offer a lifetime warranty and never stand by it - that can turn into a lawsuit sooner or later I'm sure (if there are any already). Because of their "performance" radiator, I had to shell out the cash on new radiator hoses and fan shroud because I had to modify both to make it even fit which was sh!tty anyway not to mention the amount of coolant I had to spend the money on as well. I never got compensated for any of that and because I have nothing to lose, I always tell everyone I know not to go with any Mishimoto products at least for this platform. I don't know how they are with other makes and models but I wouldn't risk ever again in my life when I get another car.

Just continue spamming them with emails and calls until there's gonna be some action from them dude.
