Looks like the original equipment radiator had plastic tanks. You need to specify with or without air conditioning and with or without heavy duty cooling system. If you want to upgrade to the one with aluminium tanks that's fine too. BTW I found a "cheepo beepo" radiator for my 2000 Grand Prix on eBay for $85. It works fine. HTH. -Jim
