I have one EXACTLY like yours!!! Live in Norway and its a blast to drive it in snowy conditions, even if its only fwd. same color and engine, running around 250hp in mine with original turbo. Gonna put S60R exhaust manifold and a Piersburg TCV unit on it. Will recieve my Do88 radiator soon so I’m good considering my future plans for it!

Well that's comforting. I was considering installing the one I have. May have to rethink that.
Don't.

I've had two fail now and the first took the engine with it

Definitely would recommend the rethinking. I'm using a Volvo radiator in my 850R.



I went with a Do88 rafiator since it doesent use any plastic bits
Seems like a good idea, but that is in fact its downfall. Aluminum cracks.

Hmm intresting, I havent recived mine yet but, does the radiator have rubber bushings in the mounts? Or anything that will minimize the vibrations in order to avoid cracks?

The issue seems to be thermal. Do88 has attempted to fix it by adding expansion breaks but it doesn't seem to be helping much.
