Ive seen civic's with Turbo kit's with stock rad's. So I guess it can work. Personally Id get a Fluidyne Rad. Remember the By-Product of more power is more heat. Do you really want to risk it? And as Kieran Mentioned common Ricer mistake is blocking off your whole rad with your intercooler. Your rad still needs airflow.

hello

I remember seen some civics running some pretty big hp number on the CP rad , It was the same size as the stock radiator ,
I guess the option will be to either buy and custom mount a bigger rad or to purchase the oem size aliminium rad from CP
