I may need to replace the radiator on the Sundance; I was thinking that perhaps the radiator from one the other models may offer better cooling or more cores and still fit.

Can anyone substantiate this suggestion. Or has anybody tried this?

I got an aftermarket rad when the OEM one in my Spirit finally rotted out. The fins on the aftermarket rad seemed more robust than the (unrotted) OEM ones. I didn't really shop around much because it was more of an "I need the car tomorrow, I'm taking whatever radiator's in stock" thing than something I had a choice in. But overall, I was pretty impressed with the quality of the radiator. I got it from Advance IIRC. The price was pretty good too. The only thing that didn't fit pretty much perfectly was a wire rod on the front of the rad itself, I think the new rad was a bit taller. The rod was rubbing on the fan anyways. Make sure you use a radiator designed for your transmission. The trans cooler for the automatics is built into the radiator. Some people run without them, but it's not something I would be willing to do on my car.
