Last time I checked, Wes' price for his aluminum radiator was quite reasonable---not all that much more than the cost of a re-core (I doubt many shops will do a re-core for the $350 mine charged---and a lot cheaper than what I got quoted for a purpose build one-off aluminum radiator. Several friends run his radiators and are complementary of their quality.

I noticed that Vick has an aluminum radiator for spiders listed for a righteous price. Has anyone tried one of these?

It looks a very precise and clean installation.

Ed thanks for the reply, I am having Wess put my engine together again this winter and run it on his dino. I think when he sends it back to me I will have him send a radiator w/fan as well.Where did you get the top radiator hose and do you need a remote oil filter set up to run the oil cooler or does that come with the radiator when you buy it.Also what modifications did you have to make to fit the radiator.
I have a Euro cold air box on the intake as well ,but have no room to run the air hose to the right side of the radiator so i had to run it to the left side,over the top of the radiator and out the port for the original air intake.I'm sure that picks up heat off the radiator.Is Wess's radiator not as wide because I noticed that you ran the hose to your intake right beside the radiator.
