Thanks for the second opinion on the x20, and thanks for the welcome! =]
I really appreciate it.
From looking at martin's site, I was under the impression that the st30 is a low fpi radiator. It does great at 600 and 1000 rpm and falls off after that.
After a lot of searching I found an fpi of 14 here.
I found here the st30 is referenced as 11 fpi. Either way it does well with less air than other radiators.
You understood my goals correctly though.

Anyway when getting into caselabs (which are beautiful, btw) or mountainmods or even an Obsidian 800D part of my brain refuses to accept it simply because that's money I could use to convert my MR2 to HIDs or buy injectors or something. My car is much more important! Little individual items for watercooling like radiators or blocks.. well, I can rationalize that. That's just skipping a night out drinking or one meal of fried chicken. :thup:
