hey all i am wondering wether or not to go with that 3 core brass vs an 2 core aluminum <all>. one im not sure wether or not the brass radiator is all brass or if it has that plastic crap at the top like an OEM one. also i need honest opinions, i would really appreciate the two cents, if anyone feels like giving

find out if the brass is all brass. there has to be a way for you to get in touch with the manufacturer.
brass is heavy. i personally think aluminum will also do a good job, is lighter, and can be found as cheap.
try griffin radiators. i think a few people have custom rigged these into their car and it worked out well.
good luck.

because the SR and KA feed out from a different side to the radiator, would it be bad if i fed out then accross to where the SR would feed in to the radiator. simpler terms, would it be bad to run a long pipe <supported> accross the side of the radiator and in the other side?
