I have a Fluidyne, it's pretty nice....and aluminum. Fact is, any radiator from a EX/SI on up is going to cool a B series fine.

STEVEO MY ANSWER IS THAT COPPER CONDUCTS HEAT BETTER THAN ALUMINUM BUT ALUMINUM SHEDS HEAT FASTER THAN COPPER SO IF YOU WANT THE BEST COOLING POSSIBLE YOU WANT TO BUY A RADIATOR WITH A COPPER CORE WITH ALUMINUM BONDED TO THE OUTSIDE AND WITH WELDED-IN ALUMINUM FINS IF YOU CAN EVER FIND ONE BUILT THAT WAY IF YOU'RE ABLE TO FIND ONE THEN YOU GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS COPPER TO SUCK AWAY THE HEAT AND ALUMINUM TO TRANSFER IT TO THE SURROUNDING AIR PLUS ALUMINUM CORRODES MUCH SLOWER THAN COPPER AND IT'S HARDER TOO SO YOUR RADIATOR WILL LAST LONGER OK I'M DONE REMEMBER THE CAPS LOCK AND PUNCTUATION NEXT TIME OK!!!
