    So I happened to be reading the October Rock Auto news letter. They mention a company named
    Leland Global. Said company manufactures all aluminum radiators. I go on Rock Auto search under 95 Taurus 3.0 Dohc they list one!!! $111.79 sorry if i missed someone posting this already.
    I did not see one listed for the ATX however it looks like they just put blockoff plugs in the end tank for the transmission lines.

    All aluminum Radiators have been available for a long time. I've had one in my 91 for 6 years. They are on ebay. Used to be offered by Genisis Radiators which is where I bought mine.

    Oh I know that. I also have one from Genesis that I have had in my 95 for the same amount of time. I was just putting it out there. It is good to have choices. I was just more surprised they listed one for the car.

    Actually haven't seen the aluminum Genesis radiators for some time, so this is a nice find.

    Search "taurus aluminum radiator" on ebay. There are several available and probably all made by the same company.

    The price on Rockauto is better than the ones on ebay, even with the shipping cost. I've got one on order so we will see how well it's made.

    The radiator is made in China and it was shipped directly from Liland Global in New York. As you can see the photos, it looks pretty well made. The end tanks are not as large as the plastic end tanks so that should provide some extra clearance space. The drain spout is metal and is better quality than the plastic ones.

    I had recently purchased a radiator from Napa and notice the quality of the metal tabs (that wrap around the plastic tanks) are more brittle than older versions. Hence, when I was crimping the metal tabs, one of them broke off. Hence, you can see why I ended up putting RTV along the crimp lines.

    I'm curious how well the all aluminum radiator cooling performs compared to the oem plastic version because I'm thinking about upgrading my radiator in the near future


    also the all aluminum radiator looks very well made and good :dribble:
