Default Any DIY for an ALL Aluminum Radiator?

Considering how our vehicles requirement extensive cooling and no perfect fit racing/all aluminum radiator, can anyone make a DIY. I noticed DV8 using a accord radiator which requires mods and same thing goes for Telion turbo build. Not saying anything is wrong with what we have available, but i rather have the piece of mine that my vehicle has a better potential cooling system.

3. get flex hose

5. profit

Its not like brain surgery its about as complex as putting a sub in your car. Just the mounts are the biggest things you need done.

It's really easy.

Fluidyne Radiator
Flex-A-Lite Dual Slim Fans
Flex Hose
Brackets
Coolant
Make sure you properly bleed the system.

Should run you about $500 or so for everything.

I've thought about this as well. I believe the biggest hurdle would be the fact that the Accord and Prelude radiators don't have a place for the Legend's radiator temp sensor, which tells the fans when to come on.

a picture will be great if or if someone can point out the exact model to buy because there is a few out there that looks like it will work for our car.
