I have a Cusco radiator shroud thing for sale. Most of you have seen it under the hood of my car. It is the brushed aluminum finish. Purty nIIce... $25 to any of you locals :)

Does it actually DO anything? Or does it just look pretty and shiny?

"It does make a difference.
I was reading the latest issue of Option magazine

They did a test on the CUSCO radiator shroud on an EVO VIII.

They did around 4 tests
One at low gear at low speed and at high speed
and one at high hear at normal crusing speed and fast speed.
I am not exactly sure since I dont know a lot of Japanese.

but the drop in radiator temperature went down like this
these are numbers are in Celsius (not accurate numbers since I dont have the magazine in front of me, but preetty close)

113 C --> 102 C
98 C --> 91C
86 C --> 81 C
and one more set of numbers that I forgot..
I could be off, but just pick you the latest OPtion and Option2 mag and check it out....

Of course a shroud is a shroud and all do the same thing... if you want to be cheap, get a no name brand, if you want a nice brand, pay a little more.. either way, both do the same job.... i got the CUSCO cause of the nice quality and decent price.

That's fine. Doesn't Paypal charge some fee? I can just bring cash with me when we make the exchange, as well. Whatever you'd like.

Damn, here I am typing away supporting Chris and his bowling, and I miss out on bling :(
This is a good opportunity for you to fashion one out of fiberglass.

...depending on at what temp fiberglass does awful things, of course...
