Ouch.....
Doesnt really matter. Just slap it on and call it a day. If it does the job it does the job. I bet you can really feel the extra 3-4whp that a bar & Plate would make.

thats true. more passages for the air to move through increases cooling efficiency and reduces pressure drop. Thats why for example a 2" thick core that is 25 inches long will be more efficient than a 3" thick core that is lets say 20 inches long. Generally speaking of course

24x12x3 for $279 http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

what he said^^^ http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
i got a (core) 18x8x2 21/2 in & out, from them and paid a very low price for it... (they list on ebay a lot), they ship quickly, and their customer service is excellent, really good place to do business with...
and the one i got is bar and plate, i wanted it that way since it is a little small (space is limited in the front of a rado)

Price must have changed since you last looked. It's now $ 349.00 for the 24x12x3 intercooler.
