Default My Good Fortune Radiator (PICS)

Well with all the talk about the Godspeed Radiator lately I decided to take the risk and buy one. Construction looks pretty good, but the real test will come when I install it. Here are some pics of the radiator, I will post some more of the install this weekend.

So it has ~65 vertical tubes. This is an important number.
I'll go count the # of vertical tubes in my coolradiator CSF 1" Al rad.

Can you estimate the # of fins per inch?

Hey take measurements as well these are from the website but i want to make sure of how large it is.
322X640X52mm
Some people have fitment issues with the 52 mm koyo and a large front sway. Don't want anyone getting screwed here.
