I'm assuming you're using this in a watercooling loop... why not buy an actual radiator??

What size heater core? You can get them from pretty much any part store for under $40.
And you can mod them pretty easy, fittings aren't that expensive and you can get the push lock type that require very little work.

I agree with Atminside. Radiators designed for this purpose are cheap enough now that using a modified heater core does not make a lot of sense unless you are doing it for looks or to fit a specific purpose.
