I hope Fluidyne will allow all vendors to sell them. I'm sure you could then find them anywhere from $50 to $100 less. I have not been impressed with SMS's prices. I have bought a few things from them, but can usually find it for less somewhere else.

Buy 5 OEM units from radiators.com (or whatever it is) and replace them every time one fails..
You still get 10+ years out of them even if they fail as often as possible.

I'm all for Fluidyne quality and the company. I'm all for having a better solution for saturns, but when it's over 5 times the price of a equally functioning product it just can't be justified.

Exclusive agreements only works for as long as product moves, but as soon as Fluidyne needs to make the numbers Keystone, Summit, NOPI, JEGS, etc, etc, etc will all be listing the Saturn unit as available.

But SCdyne, what about heat dissapation and coolant capacity?
At one point in modding, the engine works so hard that it needs extra cooling.

Find me someone who has had that problem....not a faulty sensor, thermostat, ect..

I'm willing to bet you'll be hard pressed to find an LLO that has reached that point.

A header and heavy traffic in the middle of June will give the stock radiator a run for it's money.

Like SCdyne said... wait a couple months and other companies will have them cheaper. SMS might not have them in stock yet... like the turbo kits.

Lies... LIES... it's all lies...........


Sorry.

Let me see here.
I live in the desert, The mojave Desert. I drive a Saturn that puts over 200 HP to the ground and when not intercooled close to 190 HP. I drive in L.A. traffic about 2 times a week minimum. I have never had a Saturn melt down from lack of cooling or even come close.

Nothing against the Fluidyne, because it is the best, but when the guy at SEMA told me the price I laughed in his face. My quote, "Saturn People wont pay $400 for a header that makes HP, who will pay $600+ for a radiator that does nothing?"


Especially when there is already an all aluminum radiator out on the market for Saturns for under $300.
