Hello. I recently had to replace the original radiator myself. Now if you go to the dealer and opt for the magic plastic rad, they will garner 400 $s from you. SCGirl informed me of going to a local radiator shop and having them order one. I did so, and they came up with a CSF (Cooling systems & flexibles - www.csfimports.com) all metal radiator for 215 $s, I am now installing it myself. As far as a thermostat, Autozone carries them for the SC, just need to find one in stock. And the sensor, I have no direct knowledge.. but the dealer may not be that different than other sources on it. Just watch when you change the radiator, I am in the process of it, and just found out running straight water is not a good idea. Only do it for a very small period of time, and try not to idle. It gets much warmer when idleing. Hope that helps.. for more info see my 'radiator' post on the tech board, a few pages back.

the sensor for the temp gauge I just bought. It was $3.09 from O'Reilly.
