Anyone using an Eastwood TriFlow radiator?

I'm getting ready to purchase a new radiator for my 390, and came across the Eastwood TriFlow radiators. Anyone here have any experience or thoughts on them? I don't have an electric fan and wasn't planning on adding one quite yet.

The car is just a cruiser, and will not see any track or heavy abuse.

Much appreciated.

Seems like to good to be true for that price point. Never heard of anyone running that radiator.

Those are very attractive prices, worth a shot I'd say. You should try a $20 bottle of thermocure 1st if you have an old block and minor overheating.
Being crossflow has its own benefits as well. Many more similar choices here for near custom rads. Radiators - Free Shipping @ Speedway Motors
On the above site they say their dual pass can lower temps 20* so is 1 more pass really only worth 4*?

My regular radiator in my 69 has about the same temp difference as the specs shown for that tri flow. Not saying it's no good, just saying the regular one can do the same. That is once I replaced the old one with a new one. Yeah it was made in China but it was about half the price of getting the original re cored. It's brass only thing I didn't like was the plastic drain plug but it went in the car anyway and no issues to date. Top hose is typically 185-195 and I can't hold my hand on it for very long. Bottom hose is usually about 160 and I can grab that most of the time and keep my hand on it. Don't try that at home kids.....
Same with my orange engine car. 190 out. 160 in......
YMMV.
