    My radiator is leaking like a biblical flood. I'm thinking of hitting other things that would require a similar front end tear down while there. Following is my list, what else should I consider? 89k miles.

    radiator
    oil cooler
    various hoses
    front main seal
    water pump, thermostat
    LW crank pulley
    sai delete?
    serpentine belt

    I just did this and don't have anything to add except check your intake flap.

    Also, get the B7 radiator from JH Motorsports if you haven't already. It fit my '05 without any mods.

    Usually, those pesky o-rings for the oil cooler start to leak. Don't forget to check your condenser for small leaks and such while you're in there.
