Nope. That M22 bung is pretty useless in an XR / 2.3T application. This will be a 100% new design, 1989 XR4Ti specific radiator.

Sounds like there's a demand. How many did you have made?

If I didn't already have that custom, one-off special you made for me (thank you :notworthy ), I probably would have been the third.
Seriously, though, I'm sure you could probably sell more.

Split a run of 10 between 89 XR and Scorpio. 5 89 XR gone in 2 days, Scorpio ones will probably last 5 years :)

I might split another run and do half 89 rads and half 85-88 rads.
