Honda good or not I don't know.
But Toyota coolant was widely used by other makes. Many mechanics swear by it being the best.

subaru coolant is the best but too expensive and not a lot of workshop carry it. about $50+ per bottle. my car need 2 bottle...
if you don't track then any coolant work just as well.

what about radiator size? Does a bigger radiator reduces engine performance? Or is it eligible?

short answer, no.
i don't know what car you are driving. for my subaru stock radiator offer the best cooling. but almost everyone i know, including me change it to aluminum radiator because stock plastic end-cap of the radiator always burst and leak

i know alot of workshop like to remove thermostat to prevent it from failing and cause overheat. but pls don't remove it, your coolant need certain heat to optimize engine fuel/performance efficiency.

Iím on a Honda Fit. Reason for changing is because like what you said, the plastic parts tend to crack. Iím not looking for any engine performance, just donít want a cracking leaking rad. Reason why I ask if a bigger rad reduces engine performance is because there seems to be a uncertainty about this. Water pump has to work harder to send the same amount of pressure through the fins. I understand about the thermostat part . More or less it has to close the flow for engine to warm up before it opens to allow coolant flowing back to rad for cooling .

Half cut is exactly what it means. A car cut into half. Usually the rear end is trashed and the front end where most of the goodies are will be kept as spare parts. If you go to scrap yard, you will see a lot of half cuts.

Stock radiator were designed to best suit for the car and related parts. By changing one part of the whole system may effect the rest. All parts within a system are interlinked and balanced.

Aluminium radiator can dissipate heat faster than alloys. There is a Malaysian brand( made in Malaysia) quite popular with jiuhu kias, suddenly couldn't recall the name

bigger surface with thinner radiator has better cooling efficiency. but very hard to find a full aluminum rad that is as thin as stock rad. however, i'm happy with the performance with my koyorad. i never had any cooling or heat issue with it on my car.
