This job really isn't too bad, I just did a true swap. Have two R,s one is a parts caR which happened to have a new radiator at the time I appropriated it. So I did a swap to keep both cars moveable.

So yes I did two radiator replacements. It took me an entire day with hose replacements and overflow tank replacement. Really a pretty easy job with some patience and a floor Jack to keep the intercooler in check.
I will say it was much harder if you have the do88 intercooler.

Good job OP on the write up

I've R&R'd my radiator from the top w/o touching the condenser lines. I do have a FMIC. Not sure if you mentioned it above, but watch the positive terminal on the starter when removing the fan as it can easily short and destroy the electronics in the fan motor. I wrapped mine with electrical tape to be safe.
