Anyone had any trouble with the Nissens brand radiator? I need to order something today and I don't know if I should stick with the Behr or if the quality of the Nissens is on par. I've seen a couple of posts where it seems to have been ok. I'd like hear of any experiences, good or bad....

Just to close the loop, I purchased a Nissen from Fastlane yesterday. I talked to Phil first as I was concerned about it being like the original. He said it was almost exactly like the Behr and that no one had had problems.

I was concerned about getting it today, but it arrived by 10 AM, just as Phil said it would. Spent 2 hours putting it on and puttering around under the hood. It fit almost perfect and it seems to work fine. There is very little difference to the Behr. It fact I wondered if maybe Nissen was OEM at one time.

Thanks everyone for your input.
