I dunno if you can retain AC but you can try. If it doesnt work out you will know. What type of setup you goin with?

What I wonder is would a half radiator suffice to keep your engine cool enough for regular use let alone running the ac, even if you can get the lines to work out.

Ahh yes forgot to mention the dual core. You run single core your gonna overheat all day. I think thats what iamanonymous had maybe. Anyway You can try mounting the fan on the condensor instead of the normal mount on the radiator since its half size.

it would be a good idea to get a dual core one, im running a oem civic one while it doesn't overheat the fans kick on to much since its the temps started getting hotter in tx.

Old thread here getting bumped. I have the same issue. H22 turbo, kept a/c, overheats like mad on street driving. Has a Mishimoto half size radiator (dual core I think). Not sure where to go from here. Lil help oh guru's of the CB7?

tishock is very helpful tishock is very helpful
Aftermarket D series radiators are dual core and the B series radiators are triple core.

Always go for the B series especially when going turbo. And maybe consider changing to an aftermarket thermostat and fan switch
