So my Allspeed engineering Honda subframe finally turned up on Tuesday

Image

I was quick to unwrap it, what a sexy piece of workmanship, I also purchased the lower arms and have already purchased their HD driveshafts and CVs

Image

I then strapped it into my car and drove to my engineer so he could inspect the frame which he gave his tick of approval to.

Image

I start a new job working FIFO 20/10 on Monday so work will be slow from now on unfortunately.

What radiator does it use? Looks like it would be a tight fit!

It didn’t come with one, I will need to source one.. I have seen people use modified civic radiators however I’m going to some measurements I think a daihatsu sition radiator and condenser will fit

My suggestion- Try and get a proper civic one in if you can- anything smaller like a sirion one make sure it has plenty of unrestricted air flow and a good fan!
