Not sure how flexing would be an issue on these. The stock radiators have plastic caps crimped on. It's not a Ford which actually did have issues with frame flex and busted radiators.

Either way Stand up guy! That's why we used to get our race cars radiators from him.

I really donít grasp it either as the radiator floats on the intercooler. The intercooler takes the brunt of it. I honestly feel it was more of a high heat and pressure deal that did it but no idea

I would think the same thing, a combo of heat and pressure in the system.

When the motor let go last time was it pressurizing the cooling system that you know of?

that might be possible but i dont think so. i never pushed coolant out the overflow, no soot in the coolant (heads were cracked in the exhaust ports only) and no other signs other than coolant pissing out the exhaust. i know the HG was good as i went over those with a fine tooth comb and found nothing.
