dual core or double length?

with a full length rad you will get more air travelling through the rad correct? makes sense to me. personally, i went with a double core to save on space which is at a premium under my hood. either way, get an aluminum rad.

im on a budget!! aluminum rad would be really nice but i think a normal radiator would do just fine in the summer!! the only thing is that it has to be bigger!! so which one should i get?

Get 98+ ITR full size rad, it is 3lbs lighter than first gen DC2 ITR.

i picked up my dual core aluminum rad for $236CDN shipped to my door from ottawa. www.streetimports.com haven't had a problem with it yet. you can't buy a new rad for that!

I bought my dual core rad acouple years ago. I think its made by SPI or something. 160 tax in, and works great.

^^^ where did you buy your rad!!! is it aluminum? will it be enough to cool off an h22 with driving it for 2 1/2 straight hours in the summer?
