I did a search but didn't quite run into this.

Basically I'm looking into dumping a good chunk of money into a very nice rad, but outside of the Griffin ones, I'm unaware of any other good options people have liked. I'm also considering a universal type, just not sure if it's a good road to go down. Currently I'm just using a dual-core intercooler in the stock location.

Last year my car managed to keep to very reasonable water temps in 70* weather at the track, but when I decided to test the difference in 90*, I ran a good half second slower every time, and my water temps and especially the IC temps were very much unsatisfactory.

Also, I'm skeptical of the difference between 1" tubes and 1 1/4" tubes. Worth $100? Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance as always!

Look in the Group Purchases forum for the Raceware radiators. They are a high quality, high capacity aluminum radiatior, I just installed mine a couple weeks ago and is working great.

Hmmm, well I'll have to definitely consider that. I just called him and he's out of the first batch as I suspected, but it is still saving money over the equivalent Griffin rad.
