Just remember to paint the cold side pipe black ala factory, at the top there, otherwise you see a silver pipe in the grille and it looks crap :D

i wouldnt.. a radiator shouldnt have any oily buildup inside anyway, petrol wont clean the corrosion that forms inside a radiator.

theres also the issue of petrol in your cooling system.. atleast in an intercooler it just gets burnt as it flows through the motor.
