I've flushed it a ton. Then soaked in CLR, then flushed it more. It should be fine now... I did however see a Koyo someone posted in their thread.. looks like a direct bolt in and can use the stock fan with shroud. Not sure what is needed to adapt the shroud though.. I'll keep watching the thread. I might have to go that route later on down the line if the engine still wants to run hot. Then that would mean, the radiator is just not able to keep up. As for contamination though.. I think the source was the engine. We'll see.

Koyo will bolt right in with a shroud and no modifications.

Completely FALSE.......

 

 

It's gonna need spacers just like the Champion.....about 8mm....

.....to clear the lip on the front clip.......

.........other than that it bolts in.....

 

If you use spacers bigger than that there's a chance the lower hose will hit the alternator pulley.....

 

 

The Koyo is waaaaaay better quality than the champion.........

It's snug... but looks like enough room.

Correct, you need about 8mm spacers, don't think about it, just get the Koyo, it'll give you piece of mind and your L20b will love you, aluminum radiators cool the engine faster than old fashioned radiators, plus you'll completely get rid of your rust in water issue.

Had a little bit of time today...  

 

 

So the L16 down pipe wouldn't clear the engine. I had to hammer some flat spots in the pipe. Good news is it clears now. Bad news is I fucked the gasket up beyond usability. So I'll stop for tonight and get a new gasket tomorrow. So close...
