True, but I was referring to the cost of my old Nissan and not the OPs.
IF the OP could source the new rad and have it installed for one benji, then sure it's quite obvious in what direction to proceed with.
But from my own experience and my understanding, assuming he can find an aftermarket rad, parts, labor etc, this will not be the case for the OP.
