All Aluminum Radiators from China

Been dreading this day but my old radiator finally developed a crack on the plastic tank.

Anybody sporting one and care to give us a review? Too bad it wasn't a 3 row.

Sure, maybe @12 lbs boost max and a rising rate fuel pressure regulator at 1:1 reference. The Venturi plate is the enemy.

I ended up buying one of their radiators but for my old BMW 2002 turbo race car project. Works better than expected. Even without my electric fans on, it maintains a relatively low engine temperature. No leaks yet hammering the shite out my car on hard pulls. When this car quits devouring my play money, I'm definitely getting one for the 280E, mostly because I'll need the extra cooling when I drop in the M119 V8 power plant this spring.
