i bought a mishi rad for my 350Z a few years back. it fit like ass and leaked right out the box(drain plug came pre-crossthreaded for my pleasure). i had the drain plug welded up and tweaked it a little bit and used it for a year incident free. i gave it to a club guy and he has used it another year or two with no incident--to the best of my knowledge.

i then switched to a koyo r-core on the same car. it fit perfect and has been in there for 3 years with no incident.

i personally would buy the koyo.

I bought a Koyo for my turbo civic. It dropped right in with no problems. After multiple passes at the track the car kept at a normal steady temp.
