Hey peeps, I brought the Imp out of winter hybernation and it looks like I need a radiator. Any suggestions on type and/or brand? I was looking at ZZp's oversized or should I get a standard one with a lifetime warranty.

That may be right about zzp, they just started offering them. But milzy has been offering them for a long time, I've emailed them back and forth in the past and mike is a great guy. He assured me that they have had no fitment issues besides that you should use their slim fans. Also if it didnt fit, I think anyone that has dealt with milzy will agree that they have very good customer service.You can also ask for custom coolers such as powersteering. But if you feel comfortable with something go for it. I just like supporting vendors I suppose.
What is wrong with yours? If you have a small crack in the plastic end tanks, they can be repaired and you can find heat iron and plastic stick kits online fairly cheaply, or have a shop fix it.
Otherwise, a new GM radiator can be found in the low 200 range, and its what I would go with honestly.
I had a small crack in my rad 2 years ago and went with the Advance Auto aftermarket one since it was about $110 after discounts. Chevy dealer wanted $220 for a genuine one. Well, 2 years later the trans fittings on the aftermarket are leaking and I have to try to warranty it out for a new one. Car has also generally ran hotter with the aftermarket rad as well. You get what you pay for......
