Cant remember the rrp but it will deffo be more than the ebay item. the proalloy stuff is really good quality.

not sure how much difference itll make, i needed a new rad and this looks trick... to be fair i never really suffered from overheating problems before.

it will lower temps, but id look at improving air flow aswell, never had probs with mine running hot on track even on long sessions.

cheap ally rads dont mean better cooling tho. you do get what you pay for with these

can i ask why an alloy one is better than a standard rad?

is it the material used or just the fact it seems to be bigger?

Rad is VERY smart! I was looking at the TX Alloy Rads on eBay.. Pretty cheap but dont look at all as good as the pro alloy one.

They claim the only benefit is they dont have plastic inlets and outlets to warp and leak under heat.

bit of a boring update, but being as i havnt moved/started/looked at the car since the begining of september i decided to get it out the garage and clean up the mess surrounding the car, including off the roof etc! been using the garage as a bit of a dumping ground for everything.

so put it on charge last night, got to it today -2 degrees, started pretty much 2nd crank which was nice as the cold start map was a bit of a guess for this temperature.

cleaned the garage and put it back in. got me in the mood for some mapping now tho, going to get that sorted this week i think!
current to do list:
-oil and filter change
-fit alloy rad
-sort air feeds from inner lamps to air filter
-sort water pump controller out
-mot
