Default GodSpeed eBay Radiators?

Do any of you have any experience with GodSpeed radiators?

Here's a link to one: GodSpeed Radiator

The price is right, but I don't want to buy junk that will need replaced sooner than later.

52mm Core is the other concern. Too tight with a big front sway?

There is another brand, JVT Racing, that is on eBay. They called our shop to see about us wholesaling their radiators. I got one coming in for my car that we will evaluate to see if they are worthy to be sold by us. :P

I'll post up our opinion on them soon.

Default I might be next on that list

Ill be next on that list.

Quite honestly they are a 626 area code, and I live close. I wonder if a drive down there will tell me whether they are full of **** or not.

Also Id be happy to take phone pics. Lemme see what I can do...however I am super busy so dont hold me to it.

Wonder if the stock fans will work.

And the damn plastic piece underneath the car....is that really necessary?? Ive been told that if you leave it off it doesnt help the car cool down effectively.

With a fat aluminum radiator, the effectiveness of the undertray won't be as noticeable for cooling, but the high-speed stability issues some people have noted from lack of undertray will still exist.

I guess I drew some interest to this radiator. Nobody has paid more than the starting price for one to date and the one that ended today went up to $172. I'm not in a hurry, I'll wait for another auction.

Just a FYI...

If you want one of these radiators, don't wait on ebay. Call godspeed direct...http://www.godspeedproject.com/

I called and they sold me the radiator for $180 shipped. That's $20 cheaper than ebay.
