Radiator MADNESS

So the S85 radiator is more like two radiators on top of each other and the engine has 4 radiator hoses. Others have used aftermarket radiators but we want to make this as stock as possible so…we are using the stock radiator with VERY modified in/out.

Step one….cut the stock inlets off

I won’t say I am great at tigging aluminum but sometimes things fall into place.
