my dad just replaced my radiator for me with this black metal one...i'm not sure where he got it from to tell you the truth, but everything bolts up right. the only problem now is whenever i'm driving my car, it feels like it weighs a hell of a lot more than it did before. this radiator looks twice as big as the honda one before it...but it seriously feels like there's a lot more weight in the front of my car. i'm just wondering if this is going to have any negative effects on my car like on the wheels or suspensions and stuff. or should i just secretly replace my radiator with a new honda one without telling my dad so it won't hurt his feelings. thanks for the inputs guys...

dude, even if theres a difference in wieght between these two dadiators you wouldn't be able to feel it..........
you just get that feeling like with intake systems, you put a preformance intake system and it sounds louder and you think that your car is 2 times faster than it was....lol
radiators are aluminium and don't weight much so even if the new one is double more weight you still talking about 20 to 30 pounds not more

that's just my opinion
PS: I'm not laughing at you, I get those feelings too every time I change something on my car

thanks for the response guys...i believe i was able to feel the difference in the radiators and i believe it was b/c my tires were under inflated so when i went into a corner it just felt like it wasn't as responsive leading me to think it was just b/c of the radiator...but i just pumped them up so it's handling a lot better now...thanks for the input guys...and thanks for not laughing at me ....:)
