So I have my new Fluidyne 2 row Aluminum Radiator which is apparently an oem fit. I Have gotten in there and done the tare down and when I attempted to install my new rad where my old rad came out of it is slightly different.
#1 - The new rad has a 1- 1.5" long Protruding screw mount for the electric fan on the driverside. The stock radiator is nearly flat in that spot.


#2 - It doesnt just fit in to the old placement as there is a huge main wiring cluster running from one side of the front end to the other covered in a hard thick plastic covering. I could not see any other way to make the radiator fit other than carefully cutting that cover off and i will need to get some new flexy wire covering and try to tuck them back a bit.

#3 - The solid small lines coming from the traction control are in the way a bit and make it hard but this is something i think can be carefully worked around.

-Direct Fit
Polished Aluminum Tanks
High Efficiency Air Fins
Fits 1997-04 4.6L With Manual Transmission

* Any ideas, Please?

I LOL at this... Because I have been there with the fluidyne...

You should be able to get the radiator in there, it's very tight. As you know it is thicker than OEM. I had to cut off some of the fan mount plastic to get it in.

If you need, I could try to take pictures of my installed flyidyne.

When I installed my aluminum Mishimoto I had to move the ABS unit back about 1 inch on the frame. I also had to move my battery to the trunk as the corner of the battery was against the radiator.

Here are some pics. It is very hard to get pics of the required modifications once everything is together.
