I also used a Wizard radiator, as it's a single-pass unit and seems to be well made. In my case, I had the dealer install it when changing out the oil cooler lines. Removing the lines made the installation much easier, since the Wizard is thicker than the OEM unit and requires that some of the OEM spacers be removed in order to fit. Also, it did require disconnection of the A/C lines in my case, even with a competent Lotus technician who I trust doing the work.
Overall I'm happy with the Wizard that was installed last year, as I don't feel like I'm riding around with a cooling system time bomb. Ditto going to the RLS oil lines, as those units are made up from Aeroquip hoses and barbed
PM if you want any photos of the installation and I'll email them.
