Installed this recently. I do not see much information on it, but here is my experience. The kit kept leaking bad. However, Mishimoto replaced the banjo bolts with the spherical looking ones and that solved the leak completely. The install was a pain because I have the CVFabrication Race Intercooler, so there was not a mounting point to use like the directions said.
My tips: hand tightening all of the hardware attached to the sandwich plate before putting it on car. This will reassure that you do not crossthread anything. Also, do yourself a favor and buy a 10 an wrench. Wear clothes you would not mind throwing away. You will also want to tighten the oil filter a little more than the traditional hand tightening. Overall, it looks aggressive, performs as expected, Mishimoto has great customer service, and the Non thermostatic kit would have been just as a great of an option.

Thanks for your thoughts and pics! I been thinking about adding an oil cooler to my car. I too have the CVf race and where to mount the cooler
cooled my jets on ponying up for one.

I was going to drill thru the top of the bumper bar, but I sacrificed many drill bits that day. Then, you can make your own mounting points underneath the bumper bar. Instead I used a lot of zip ties and mounted it under the radiator cover. I’ll post a photo of the best install I have seen—I have no idea how this guy did it other than he used the BMR bumper bar.

Great way to help keep your engine cool! How did you find the install and the fit?? Keep us posted on how it ends up playing out!
I have noticed that the cylinder head temperatures stay low. I have not monitored the oil temperatures enough in spirited driving conditions, so I cannot give a complete review. It fits good even with CVF Race intercooler. If you have a stock location intercooler or an ETS, the install will be easy

Hello I replaced all my stock parts with Mishimoto 2 years ago (radiator, oil cooler with stat, intercooler, catch can). The hoses lasted about and year and leaked like sieve. Had some new hoses fabricated and all is now well. I also added an oil bypass filter from AMS Oil. I run Royal Purple oil and have gotten great oil analysis tests, MPG went 27 to 32 in city and up to 37 highway.
That eco must love you man, it’s probably running cool as hell. I was wondering how difficult it is to install the Mishimoto Radiator. Also, post some pics of it if you can:
