Nice i Thought it was 450, 279 sounds more affordable do you have demensions on it

Ya apparently, on their site it shows 450, but when you call to order its cheaper.

Here's an interesting option if you'd like to get more out of your existing Rad, or inter-cooler. There is a coating made by NIC called C-187 Transfer Black that acts as a surface thermal dispersant. Check out the site http://www.nicindustries.com/heat_dissipation.php I wish I had some hard data to share, but I've read it improves heat diffusion by 30-40% Please bare in mind this is purely hear say, but even if it were 15% it's worth considering. My inter-cooler is being coated with the stuff right now, so we shall see.
Sometimes people loose touch with subjectivity, because they've got they're heads stuck too far up they're own,,, Reality.

just to update this - i called ron davis last week and the 1a-22163 i was told $550 -- they also sell it with fans and shroud for $742. not even close to the earlier posts yes its been 8 + years but thats a lot of price increase-

not sure if i like the "look" of the cx racing rad so im likely ordering a howe 342bm which is 23 x 16 x3 or the summit one listed before of 24 x 16 x 1.75 just not sure if i need the 2 core --
