    Can anyone tell me by these numbers what size radiator I have? Apparently Toyota decided to use about 4 different radiator sizes in 2003. F803993A-4571-4249-AAF0-9C20D67B1221.jpg

    Measure the height. There was 3 different made. Radiator for the 5vz was around 21". 3rz is about 20" and the 2rz being the smallest is around 18-19". Hope that helps.

    Don't know about 412 but the other numbers have nothing to do with the size. PA66 is polyamide, aka nylon 66. GF25 means the nylon is 25% glass fiber reinforced. What the end caps are made of.

    As said, since you are v6 auto, you need the tallest size with the heat exchange lines for the trans (assuming you still want to run the stock heat exchanger for the trans).

    Edit: I used Denso 221-3138 with the OEM brackets. Auto 5VZ
