I don't know why I never subscribed to this forum.
I thought I did many moons ago.
Well in any case I am here now.

SuperSix, been a  long time whats up? Don't you sir me.... :) :rock:

Steve, Its nice to be seen and remembered. Thank you.

Steve I have a question for ya. Do you still keep up on the vortex site? I found something you might wanna change/add for the stock location intercooler comparison page.

BGC 23 row 1st run with new core:  Core is 16" long 12.5" wide and 2.75" deep.  6" longer than stock. BTW the 2" inlet is far from the bottled down neck on the stock intercooler.

I just picked one up super cheap with no shroud and chemically cleaned the inside up and pressure tested OK and gave it a nice end tank spray of satin black after I straightened every fin that was bent and sprayed some eastman radiator paint as touch up on the core..

Anyway I'll be lurking around. :-)

yeah, Joe, I still mess with it now and then...I just added a page on rebuilding the pump for a 200-4r tranny and made some other  minor changes...I will stick that info in if I still have that page up...I may have thought it was obsolete, not sure :D
