    Hi guys, first post on the forums.

    Just picked up an 01 PreRunner TRD and have been going over what needs fixing. On the list is a new radiator. There's a hairline crack in the plastic that makes up the top of the radiator just under the cap. When the truck is hot and the engine is being revved its spurts a little bit of fluid.

    I'm wondering if there's any particular possibly performance radiator anyone would recommend or should I just take it to a local shop and have them put in what they've got for a taco and be done with it. I ask because in a previous car I had the radiator was tiny and when it came time for an upgrade I got something better.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I would go with a factory replacement, there plenty big enough, my temp gage rarely moves
