    PM sent to compactive.

    As for the expansion tank, the Zionsville shroud has this already bolted in place, so once I got the shroud secured to the radiator, the tank was also held steady. I ran a small piece of hose down the side of the radiator for the blow-off.

    I'll see if I can snap a few more pics over the upcoming holiday week; I'll be doing some more work on my car then, at home where my better camera is.

    Bump, Is anyone running a mishimoto radiator with a supercharger? I am in need of a new radiator since my bwsport one has started to leak. I am concerned with the clearance for the top hose as well as electric fan being too close to the crank pulley? TIA

    Friend of mine ran a Fluidyne with his Dinan SC E36 M Sedan, never had an issue with it. Wouldn't see why any other aluminum rad would give you any issues

    The clearance between the electric fan and the crank pulley is very minimal. The mishimoto radiator specs states that it is thicker then stock which is same size as current radiator. Therefore i'm concerned with the clearance.

    Welcome to the forum. This thread is 9 years old

    Those are Dinan/Fikse wheels, looked like 18" size, they are hard to find and expensive. I saw a set used in the wheel classifieds recently though.
