    a used original one might give you problems, but it is exactly the kind you need.

    a new replica will be a short term solution only as it WILL fail eventually.

    i replaced the tank of mine with a Taiwanese one, working fine since two summers, btw the car under question is a Nissan sunny diesel, replacing that tank shouldnt cost you more than 2k , if only tank is costing you 15k than go for a kabuli one.
    its all about power to weight ratio...

    Dolphin radiators are good, go for the new dolphin one, you won't regret.

    Could u post some pictures of "dolphin" radiator? I had a very good experience with an unbranded chinese radiator which was meant for Mehrans but I fabricated it into a Charade G11 1985.
