    I'm in for an automatic version, but same as lswing, only if it is plug and play.

    There's got to be a price that makes it worth it for them to assemble install parts kit and not require the consumer to need welding done.

    I'm gonna try and call the guy at Wizard and/or maybe track down another place as I've E-mailed him multiple times but he has not replied? I personally would like a spare as I now an 18yr old radiators days are numberred. An all Aluminum would most likely be a life of the car radiator than a composite plastic/Aluminum OEM one.

    Yep, I'd be in also for auto specific with all connections, same as OEM but all aluminum. Around $1k would be great.

    Well I might have just blown my OEM radiator. (Hoping it's just the upper hose that popped off, as unlikely as that is),

    So...is this going on? I'd be in for a auto version as long as it is plug and play.

    Bringing this back up....I have a little weeping on my OEM...any thoughts on where this left off for a manual version? I'd think that this one would be easier than the auto without the additional internal trans cooler, but I'm not the fabricator either. Happy to pay $1k for a custom unit if needed, but just need someone to commit to actually making them...

    Looks like the biggest issue on the non RS6 v8 radiator is the lack of an outlet for the after run pump, but not sure about mounting points, hose compatibility, etc...any thoughts?

    I use a CSF 7071 in the RS4. Why not contact CSFrace for a radiator. The RS4 OEM radiator uses an Auto system with the (01E manual) gearbox oil passing through the radiator. It's as hot here as anywhere in the US and it hasn't caused me any issues plus an advantage is it helps to heat the oil as the 01E is much smoother once hot. It isn't as good if you only put up a few miles and the box isn't at full op temp.

    Bonus is you only need one style radiator for both transmissions (if you have the oil pump in your gearbox)

    I did E-mail CSF and they quoted me a minimum purchase of 50 units. If I had money to put them aside then I'd stock them for future purchases but it's beyond my scope. Plus 1/2 or more wanted Manual and the other half wanted for an Auto. Sure you can use a Auto radiator for manual, which most of us with the 6spd conversion are but if you have a manual why not get more cooling capacity with the dedicated manual radiator, and probably slightly cheaper.
    BTW, the core on the B5 S4 radiator is 1.7" total lenght and and only about 1/4" shorter in height, the thickness of both are pretty much identical.

    More's the pity the connections and locations are totally incompatible. The price is certainly right. I thought they did custom radiators so they would be one off. Can't say I'm convinced extra cooling is needed for a manual. Sort of thing you call for and then run around with the thermostat at 50% open. Real world outcomes is the manual gearbox seems to operate better with the oil at around 90C.

    A lot of us out there have removed the weight and complexity of the Hot Weater package extra radiators and lines so a little extra cooling insurance would be great if available. All N. America cars got the Hot Weather package and cars in the Mid east but for most of the world it was an option and they just got the central main radiator.

    Happy to say we aren't rest of the world then as we have the hot weather package, plus all the euro options the US seemed to have missed out on as standard. Many of you guys list your RS6 as a weekend hobby car so from my perspective a slick shifting gearbox came out ahead of the race hot engine temps. I have found engine oil temps more of an issue than coolant under some load. We go from snow to the 40's (centigrade) in my area so we need to cater to both ends of the spectrum.

    In my case, when converting to the manual I removed the RS6 shared Engine Oil/Transmission oil front Air to Oil cooler and swapped in a BMW 3 series engine oil cooler that has a little larger capacity than the engine oil portion of the stock front cooler, so I am definitely gettting more engine oil cooling capacity than stock.

    Good solution. I haven't yet made an improvement to my oil cooling and had been tossing up using one of the Serck range but that may be a good alternative. Dumping the AC or getting rid of the plethora of stacked cooling matrix up front would do wonders.
