Howdy,
I have recently bought a honda civic radiator due to reduction of space thanks to the new turbo. I'm after info on what has to happen to get it to fit. Some pictures would be good too. Cheers.

As I recall, the p/s mount is welded on, but the d/s is bolted (Toyota making allowances for an aborted factory turbo Sera?), so can be moved across to mount the Rad on the n/s. mounting points for the top bracket would have to be added to the slam panel, given that this forms part of the crumple zone I figured best leave it to the professionals.

What radiators do people get when they need some space?

The civic one is the most popular choice, myself and impressive G have gone down that route, as have many Starlet turbo owners. Tony's Sera has a custom made Rad, not heard of any other alternatives...

Our Sera has a plastic top end tank from a Starlet after the original one cracked.
It doesn't fit the brackets as well as the original, but it certainly does the job.

Bracket doesn't look too tricky actually...
