Their race radiators are fairly cheap and they have two that would fit. Custom mounting required, they don't offer anything off the shelf for Sonic. Should be able to reuse stock fans for an oem look

Would be nice if there was a direct fit aftermarket radiator that was slightly larger. Then upgrade the OEM fan as well to one with a higher CFM and slimmer profile for extra clearance.

These cars do a pretty good job at punching out of their weight class. It's actually fairly surprising what this car can beat in a straight line, even more surprising what it can keep up with in corners.

Here is a good question though. Is there an OEM radiator that utilizes the factory Hose connections but with larger dimensions that would fit.

Interesting thought, perhaps a Trax/Encore radiator has more volume and still mounts up to factory points
