I need to replace the radiator on my 2000 P38 which has Secondary Air Injectors.
Searches indicate that there are two types of radiators for the P38, with SAI and without. The price difference between the two is fairly significant and I cannot understand or locate any information as to why there would be different radiators required.
Can anyone educate me?

SAI radiators have a third temp sensor at the base of the radiator. Other than that the actual radiator is a basic Bosch model radiator. This is one of those instances where a third party Nissen and Behr radiators may be cost effective. Most P38 aftermarket radiators have only two options... GEMS and Bosch. They build all of the Bosch with the fitting for the third temp sensor, but bung it off for folks without the SAI. This allows production of only two part numbers instead of three.
