MK4 Performance Aluminum Radiator - With Installation Kit
The factory radiator in the VW MK4 Golf/Jetta was engineered to only support stock power outputs and last within a set service life. All too often the MK4 radiators leak out of the end tanks due to corrosion or failed epoxy and suffer from heat soak when more additional power is added. The ECS Tuning in-house engineered Performance Aluminum Radiator solves both issues by utilizing a larger volume, dual row, dual-pass aluminum heat exchanger, hand TIG-welded to 5052 aluminum end tanks and polished to perfection. Featuring a 26% increase in overall volume compared to stock, this is a direct replacement radiator that will outperform and outlast the OE unit!
Our radiator utilizes all factory mounts, fan shroud, fan switch and radiator hoses for a direct OE upgrade WITHOUT modifications to any other components

INSTALLATION AND SUPPORT
Looking for installation tips? Look no further, we put together a full installation tutorial from start to finish, including how to remove your bumper and other parts, in detail! See our Installation PDF under the INSTALLATION Tab for more information.
Due to vibrations, we recommend a few drops of medium-strength thread locking compound to be applied to the radiator fan shroud mounting screws. For your convenience, we've included a small tube for this purpose.
