    It looks like a stock one that's been spray painted silver? You can't really tell much from pictures- I'd pressure test the sucker and see if it leaked.

    Looks nice I guess, like a brand new stock one. I see the welds too, but I mean it just doesn't look impressive, who knows, like Mike said test it and see.

    Well, ideally you'd line up a stock radiator, that one, and a huge aluminum core racing radiator- feed them all the same temperature and flow rate of water, flow the same speed/temperature of air over them, then measure the outlet temperature.

    LOL I know wxactly what you mean.
    Regarding the radiator, I'd just rock a stock radiator if that one costs more. If you are going to spend more than what it would cost for a stock rad, I'd get a koyo or fluidyne (the latter is my choice)
