An OEM denso 1.6 Waja Mitsu engine radiator retails about RM 350 for auto (single layer) parts only Labour adds RM 30-50 . Repairing on top cover alone usually costs about RM 180 including labour.

lighter by how much?
is it to say it doesn't help much to cool down the engine?
1 thing i know is much expensive than (denso / apm)

Engine temperature is controlled by the thermostat, as the engine has an optimum running temperature to maintain.
Radiators are just to cool the coolant. If it cools to well, the thermostat will still block and maintain running temperature..... smile_wink.gif

means using oem / local radiator brand should be more than enough for normal / street drive rite?

Yes, Car manufacturer already calculated for normal use.
Unless you are modding for Race, then many things to upgrade.....

You will notice the radiator fan going on and off (without air con). When on means hot and needs to be cooled, and when off means coolant within heat limit.
With air con on, most radiator fan are override to cool the air con also..... smile_tongue.gif
