Aftermarket R33 ones will fit, you just have to modify the mounting braket as the R33 design is different.

If your handy with a welder it'll take you no more than 30mins.

I'm using a Race Radiators one... for the R33 and putting it into my R31.

cheers

Personally I would think the stock unit is more than adequate if in good condition, unless you are doing a stack of laps at a track... why not just install an accurate temperature gauge first ?? if you see the temperatures regularly getting to high temperatures, upgrade.. its useful anyhow.

The stock R31 (local) radiator is actually pretty decent.. I have had no cooling issues on 35 degree days driving the car hard, I took in on the track for some short lap spells the other week no probs, etc. And heat problems are never regularly a problem on the R31.. unlike the VL's..

Although my r31 is not turbo admitedly, the stock radiator is still larger than on my R32. I think the main difference is that the R33 ones have the two cores..
