    Sorry, yes; EU/Go/DeloreanclubUK, same radiator. I had no idea Rob sold the same one until I was on the phone with him one day and he informed me he did. I can't vouch for the other vendors and I'm sure they're great, but at the time I needed a radiator and this is the one I got. I've had 5 years with this radiator, problem free.

    In 2016, I installed a DMCH aluminum radiator and with refreshed OEM cooling fans, they keep my car consistently cool even in the hot Florida summers. It was plug and play with no fitment issues.

    Not going to lie and also WTF do I know but this is merely an observation...

    I installed the DPI Aluminum Radiator last March and after taking a look at a buddy's Aluminum Rad from DeLoreanGo upclose, they look DAMN close to identical. I'm sure you'd have no issue with the DGo rad

    Even though the DGo radiator is cheaper and would get from England to Ohio USA faster than the DMCH, I still chose the DMCH radiator because it has a petcock drain valve at the bottom that makes draining faster/easier. Yeah how may times do you change your coolant? Well, I drive more so I change more so that was just my deciding factor. Both work great.

    Way too many times lol

    1st time when i broke the original radiator
    2nd time replacing the accessible hoses
    3rd time replacing the hoses in the VOD
    4th time draining the system during my EV conversion

    I should probably get a drain valve welded on my radiator while it's out.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Appreciate everyone's input. Feel a lot better knowing others have used the DPI Fans w/other MFR's aluminum fans no problem.

    Need to place order asap.

    Some good info on this thread regarding radiators.
    That is on my list to upgrade at some point and it sounds as though either option is good.!

    I did happen to acquire a NOS radiator still in the DMC dealer box. I don't plan to use it but would assume some value to a concourse car..?

    Both Radiators are from Delorean Europe, DPI can no longer sale this part.
    Deloreango has a good stock on hand.
