small all-aluminum radiator?

where can i pick out a small all-aluminum radiator for my saturn? the ones they sell for these cars are pieces of *hit! plastic tanks don't seem to last long. it can be a smaller one that has 2 rows,or even 3. i'm not looking for a racing one, a rad. from a different car would be alright.

You're pretty much stuck with the plastic deals unless you feel like doing some fabrication to make an aftermarket radiator work.

Measure the core size and then the overall size. Take note of the hose positions, and angles if the don't stick straight out. With that info you can go to the parts house and look at the radiator book to possibly find a match or look at Fluidyne, Modine or Be Cool's website and they might have one that's close.

with all the sport compact racing they have now going over 200 mph in the 1/4 mile i can't believe the radiator companies don't make aftermarket aluminum radiator's.
