    I'm pretty sure the Del Slow's radiatior is half-width of a normal radiator, hence the dual core. You'd have to build brackets to make it fit, but people usually only do that if they are having clearance issues with a turbo or header. If you want a good dual core to improve cooling, hit the aftermarket.

    I somehow scored a dual core rad when I replaced my older leaky one. Dual core radiator fits with no problem. Mind you, you'll need a Del Sol VTEC set of radiator hoses.

    Yes, you can fit the dual core del sol VTEC radiator in with no problems. It fits in just like the stock single core- it's the same width. I have one in my Civic.
