I know I know, a ton of people have posted threads like this but do you think it could be done. If so could you please list the components (preferably links from a good site where I could buy them from).

I hate to say this, but I'm short on time.
See "stickies" in "watercooling forum". Many pieces , parts and prices are listed.
Gotta crash now.

well I got 10 feet of tubing from Home depot for about 3 bucks but every one of the three autoparts stores that I went to looked at me like I was a dumbass when I asked for a '77 bonneville heater core and no one could find out the size fittings of any other ones.

hell just search on ebay for a good heatercore and make sure it has 3/8" or 1/2" fittings on it, or no larger that 3/4" fittings.. maybe contact the seller to ask what size they are
after ofcourse u cant find it in an auto parts store...

All american car heater cores have a 5/8 and a 3/4 tube on them, they are easy to adapt down to 1/2 ID tubing. The hardware store guys will help you with that, just take it there. Just go and order the 77 bonneville heatercore from auto zone or one of the others, they are easy to find and are only 20 dollars.

Dude, tell them you want it for PC watercooling. They will be so interested they will start pulling every possible heatercore out of stock they have. If they give you a bad time act like they are a moron for not knowing what you are talking about. Some guy tried to give me some attitude saying “oh wow! That’s a great idea! Just put water in your computer!†being a total sarcastic *******. I made him pull 20+ heatercores for me, then I just walked away saying nothing would work.

Just tell them you need a 77 Pontiac Bonneville heatercore without AC. When they ask you what engine size, tell them it doesn't matter.

You will have to cut off the tubing on the heatercore because one of the tubes is expanded to 3/4" from 5/8".
