New rad or bigger tube? - Page 3

post #21 of 40
That really looks like 1/4 to me. The only way that is 3/8 is if the tubing walls are the thickness of a sandwich baggie.

My side panel is always off so mounting it outside shouldn't make a difference?

I would get this. I just assumed you are in the UK because of the currency you used.

The PA 120.2 will without a doubt beat the XSPC 120x2 rad.
It should it costs twice as much!!

Cus i have a friend who can get 40+% off all there products...hence why i got my XSPC kit for £40 and not the £80+ it normally goes for

I can get the 240 rad for about £15, bang for buck tbh

Agreed.

Your tubing is most likely 3/8 ID and 1/2 OD, which is fine.

It would have been helpful to list that in the OP...

it is 1/4. the only compression fittings xspc sells are 1/4 and that's what comes with his kit.
