Radiator for a 1990 GTZ?

I have had the original radiator welded and it lasted however just recently it is now leaking. It's time to get a new one. However I can not find a direct replacement. Any ideas or help on a different radiator that will work or how to source one?

Rock auto has one very close but it's for the automatic. Seems all that one needs is a lower hose that will fit.

Have you tried summit racing, Oriley auto, or advance auto?
I know rock auto has a lot listed but I have had issues with misrepresented listings and wrong parts being sent with them usually 50/50 chance I noticed.

Yes I have tried but with no luck. Autozone claimed they had one but it was a total universal that was too long.

I wonder if the automatic Beretta will work with a hose change.

I'm not sure as I never had to deal with this yet. My 90 gtz's radiator is still working, but I know at some point I'll have to replace it as well, plastic never lasts forever.

What about the regular I4 auto? I don't know if it would work, but if it was me I'd look for something close and try to cut the hose to fit.
I know some places sell bendable radiator hoses for custom applications, different elbows and stuff can be found as well.
