Hereof, does Denso make good radiators? I've used both Denso and Koyo replacement radiators (one each) on a 1993 and 1998 Honda Accord. Dropped right in, everything fit just like the original radiators. Denso and Koyo make stuff for OEM's, and they are good brands.
Also, are Mishimoto radiators any good?
Mishimoto radiators are absolute garbage and the quality is crap. This is supposed to be a heavy duty performance radiator but it fails and leaks after a very short time, doesn't even last a year! This is absolutely ridiculous to have a second radiator fail so quickly.
Do aluminum radiators cool better?
An aluminum radiator does cool better than a copper brass radiator. For example, an aluminum radiator with 2 rows of 1" tubes is equivalent to a copper brass radiator with 5 rows of 1/2" tubes. Aluminum provides high efficiency, is lightweight, and has a longer life compared to copper brass.

More rows meant more surface area in contact with the fin and consequently a higher heat rejection. So a 3 row was better than a two row and so on. ... In this case a 3-Row aluminum radiator would only have a total of 1.86" of tube-to-fin contact surface which is less than the two row core with 1" tubes.
Size, along with material, affects the BTU output - bigger radiators are likely to put out more - but when thinking about size, don't forget about depth. Example: You could choose a radiator that's really long, really tall, but you could also get a compact one with plenty of depth, like a double panel convector.
