20V Radiator Plastic vs Metal?

To clarify, the Nissens all metal radiator for our 20v's is identical to the
one used in the 200 10v's (except for 2 extra fittings for the aux.
radiator). So, those 10v radiators have a higher failure rate than the stock
AKG ones in the 10v cars. But I would assume that the same would hold true
for the 20v cars as well.
