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......
