I have a cooler logic unit and it works well. Many others out there from various vendors such as ADM, Torq, etc. Do a search on the subject and you can read many different threads.

I'm also using the Coolerlogic hx. Bolts right up, and holds ~3 times the fluid as the stock hx.

I would stay away from the heat exchangers with the fans. Eventually they will go out or have to be replaced.

I am running the new D3 Performance Engineering setup (not to be confused with D3 that does Caddys). Biggest core you can fit without removing bumper brace. Reservoir placed away from headers.

When the water goes to another exchanger under the supercharger instead of the engine.

1. cooler logic (cheapest I think) single pass???
2. KDI (there is data on the site about this one) can't remeber if it is single or dual
2. torq (with or without fans) dual pass
4. livernois (expensive) dual pass
5. afco (dual pass)
6. D3 (never seen it but is poted above)

Now I don't know if any of the above are actually made by the same people. some are single pass and some are dual I think.

Now there is much debate on surface area vs single/dual/triple pass design. I won't coment on it caue I have no experience. I think the new GT500 uses a triple pass.

I have seen nothing to compare them to each other though.

I have not made my mind up.
