A fluidyne radiator is all you need. Spoon makes great stuff, but personally, spending 1500 bucks on a radiator is just crazy. 350-400 will get you an all aluminum fluidyne that will work great.

Why spend 1500?, save money and put it back into building the rest of the engine, honda engine's are exceptionly effecient when it comes to cooling (the very fact civic raditors are half the size of most prove's this), even a new stock one, so the fluidyne is well up to the job.

**** even I would go with the Fluidyne one over the spoon, unless I really really really didnt have to worry about money ever ever ever again.

seems to me this dude's a pipe dreamer... I mean, no disrespect intended but only two kinds of people look to buy the most expensive parts they can find... The first, is a rich as hell enthusiast with a thirst for the best of the best. The other, is a true noob with eyes bigger than his wallet...

Ahh, I remeber those days. then you settle for a set of cheap (free) coilovers and eat through tires for a few years, wishing for your stock springs. dont waste the money on overcooling your motor. hell, Ive got a "stock" twin core radiator from a Del Sol VTEC, and it wont even warm up on my 20 minute drive to work if i dont hit some stops. a Fluidyne aluminum rad will be all you will need.

my z6 runs cooler in the summer, than my stock engine did in the winter. i run a stock ef radiator with no cooling fans because (when i'm too lazy to hook it up, and my stock radiator is twice the size as the original z6 one.

i would recommend the fluidyne, and use the extra 1000 on a nice set of tein coilovers
