New radiator same as a afco unit. This one is just a bit taller an has a cap on it. Will have to make my own lower core support for it but it is no big deal. Got the fan with it for free and got a extra 25.00 since it was the last one. Show price was 200.00 w/o the fan. Got it for 175.00 with it.

Also picked up a set of thin wheel spacers for the set of rims I got as part of a trade. Just will need them for when I put on a set of brembos.

Here are the rims I got in part of a trade. They are in good shape just need a good polishing. Will be used for winter rims. Sold an cat back for 300.00 and the rims.

Got the new 2.4 put into the car the other day. Still have to get my other valve cover done since the one on it is for the Evo 3. It does not clear the hood the way it is.

Brought my extra valve cover and some 8an fittings down to the airport to have my buddy that works in the fab/welding shop put them on for me. More of a pain now since I don't work out there any more. Any way he got them on and was just my time to drive out there.

He also fixed to small cracks on the top. Just have to sand the welds down on top and drop it off to get powder coated hot pink

Worked on it today after I got home from Mitsubishi picking up my new lower timing cover for the 2.4
Cut the stock core support out of the car.

Used the metal I have around. Would have loved to done a tube core support but I have no way to bend one up. Hade to make it lower than the sock one to fit the hot rod radiator in the car.

It sat all winter. I did get a set of 1g rims and tires from a buddy for free but it never left the garage. Could not bring my self to bring it out in the snow since it has never been in it before and has no rust on it with 48k on it still.

I did trade the set of 17*9 rota grinds for a set of evo 9 bbs's that fit so much better.
