Well since my GT is a 97, and has the modified radiator brackets and such, or at least the overflow support, i thought it would be easy to be able to put in my mishimoto radiator. Well that wasn't the case at all.

I took it out of the box, and noticed that one of the ends didn't seem like it was welded on exactly straight, but i didn't think it would be that big of a deal.

Turns out it was, for the life of me, couldn't get it to fit into the bottom passenger side hole that its supposed to fit in. Tried wedging soap, ETC but it was too far forward, and the radiator couldn't move back because of the bracket for the ABS controls.

I bent the bracket, and after about an hour of frustration, cut the grommet and wedged it in. the other side went in easily, but when it came to the top radiator support on the drivers side we had to wedge it and pry it to get it to fit.

The grommet on the top is now stretched way out of shape as well.

At least it looks nice in there, but damn, that was a royal pain in the ass.
