Why crossflow?
The Crossflow utilizes a side to side coolant flow pattern. The OEM and most aftermarket radiators have a downflow top and bottom tank configuration. The primary advantage of a crossflow is the longer transverse coolant path allows more time to shed heat.  Placing the filler on the low pressure side also prevents the cap from releasing pressure prematurely as it can in traditional top/bottm tank designs. The core also features carefully optimzed fin density and thickness to allow the maximum cooling in the most compact and lightweight radiator. This lightweight 31mm core will cool more efficiently than the Koyo 55mm once offered and weighs about 40% less.

Why OEM fans and shroud?
Our street and track testing clearly shows that the amount of air entering the nose of a Miata above about 20mph is far higher than any fan can move. For this reason, we do not recommend any aftermarket fans or shrouds as some street oriented tuners may suggest. We have seen aftermarket fans disintegrate in race conditions. At any speed above 20mph, a shroud will actually reduce total airmass through the radiator. If you only need to hardpark or sit in an autocross grid with the A/C on, then shrouds will help. If you need it to run cool at speed, do not use an aftermarket shroud. We use the stock primary fan on all our race builds and have never run out of cooling. Purpose built tube frame or carbon monocoque race cars runs with no fans or shrouds. A typical Miata will need to sit and idle however, so the singple OEM primary fans is needed for that.

Add our Qmax coolant reroute for maximum cooling efficiency

More details on the design

Starting with a clean sheet of paper, we were able to include the features of the best radiators on the market and add a few of our own.

-Two drain plugs. Each drain plug is a common 10x1.5 bolt with a simple o-ring. Lose a plug? 10 minutes at your local auto parts or hardware store and you are back in business. Other radiators use proprietary plugs that are only available from the radiator manufacturer. This honest ease of use is intentional in every aspect of the design.
-High flow fill neck. Nothing more anoying that bleeding a cooling system that has a tiny filler neck that requires a funnel and slo-mo filling. 
-High pressure 1.4 bar (20psi), high temp cap. The standard cap with our radiator will allow your system to operate at 25% higher system pressure. That raises the boiling point even further. The seal is high temp silicone, not rubber that will crack and leak.
-B tube core. The B tube is actually two tubes in one. The B tube has a septum, or divider that runs down the center of each tube. This increases the surface area and help to equalize the wall pressures inside the tube to further optimizing cooling efficiency. Our core is one continuous tube, not two cores sandwiched like you might see in other large capacity cores. This means maximum surface area with minimal external size/weight.
-High fin density. Our core is 19.5 fpi, or fins per inch. Our testing has shown that 18-21 fpi is the sweet spot given the airflow, temp deltas and water pressure of  Miata system.
-Compact 6.5mm fin height increase coolant to core contact area
-Convertible. Our radiator will fit any year 89-05 MX5 Miata with included hardware. 
-Light weight design. 7.8 lbs, the lightest aftermarket aluminum radiator available
