Since there is a known problem with the internal trans lines failing in radiator, should I buy an aftermarket radiator with a good reputation (which one is that) or buy a OEM Honda radiator assuming the design has been updated. I have an 07 with 160k miles.

Preferred aftermarket brand is Denso.

I’m pretty sure Denso is Honda’s OEM radiator brand. I used Denso when replacing my 2005 Pilot’s radiator. The part number was different compared to the original.

I seem to recall a discussion about the troublesome fitting pictured in both below, and about which was better to avoid the pink milkshake of death based on the materials used in that fitting, but I can't recall the conclusion.

Got two 06 series both have original rads both have over 250k so I assumed the rad as redesigned since other than maintenance no leaks or issues
