Is it possible to install a mishimoto radiator on a 1998 SL without removing the front bumper?
Stock fans yo! Arguably, I believe the OE shroud is better. And for an SL, you certainly don't need increased cooling capacity. Honestly, an OE replacement from Rockauto would do you just fine.Would you recommend sticking to stock or getting aftermarket? Same thing with the fans and hoses?
Hoses are hoses, assuming they fit correctly. The stock fans work fine. In fact, the stock cooling system on any 3S, if it's in good shape, works fine for basically everyone. There is very little reason to "upgrade" unless you have defective OE parts and can't source a replacement OE part or they're really expensive compared to aftermarket.Would you recommend going oem for the hoses and fans as well?
