AFCO 80104N - It does require a reducer on the KA side with the hoses I used. There may be a better one out there now- I do believe their are a few other people using this Afco radiator on their KA swaps.

 

Here’s a link to more info on this radiator in my build

VW Rabbit MK1 rad. Nice smaller rad that fits well and cools awesome, cheap as well. It has a factory spot for a fan temp switch that works well. Use a VW Bus rad cap so you can have an overflow tank otherwise it leaks all over the ground. I've been using it for over 15 years and honestly wouldn't use anything else unless I absolutely had to for space constraints.

I am running an AFCO in my car, and so far, it survived engine break in and various warm up and start ups pretty good. 

 

I had some angle aluminum welded on the sides for mounting, as I am using the AFCO fan shroud setup

What radiator hoses did you use for your VG?
