Any alum radiators other than mishimoto

I have traced a small amount of coolant on my driveway to the passenger side of my radiator. I'm keeping an eye on it and my degas tank like a hawk now. I know about the stock tank flaws so screw that. I've been looking at the mishimoto tanks, but was wondering if there are any other options to look at? I only want to change this thing once.

I just installed my new mishimoto this weekend. Took a good part of the day doing it myself but it is a super nice unit. Lifetime warranty even if you mess it up in a crash. I kept my stock rad just in case I need to remove the mish since the stocker only had a small leak. If you look on xdp.com they have the mish rads for a pretty good price and cheaper than a stock one at the dealer.

I waiting for flex-lite comes out with one with eletric fans like the 6.0.
Cost is around $1,500 I think worth it.

Will keep everybody updated when it comes out.
I'm been bugging the heck out of them for one.

I personally would stick with an all aluminum radiator from either moshimoto or alradco. It seems like eventually the plastic end tanks will leak.

OP you just missed Alracado's pre-sale. The first tester did a review on it and was very happy with the results so they are now starting full scale production. Last I heard, because of all the pre-sale orders you are probably looking at May if you order now. I don't need one YET but I went ahead and ordered one on the last day of the pre-sale.
I agree with Fatboy, stick with all aluminum.
OP, are you in the States? If so, and you go that route, I might be able to trade you spots in line since I am not in a rush.

I am not sure what you were getting at, but just to clarify. Alracado said they were going to test the radiators before starting full scale production. After they had what they thought would be the final product, they began to take "pre-order" sales. If you bought in on pre-order, you got it for $200 less the price is now. They did not require you to pay in full, but you did have to place $100 deposit on the pre-orders and pay the rest when it was shipped to you. To date, I have only paid $100. Now that they have the finished product, they are beginning full scale operations of making them to be filled in the order in which they were received. That is not what Mishimito did according to a few guys on here. In any case, I was just saying that if the OP was in a bind and needed one sooner, I would trade him places in line because I don't need mine right away.
