radiator.  Bad.  
	 One could argue that even the aux rad has the same effect. In
general flow to the rad is pretty restricted either way. 

There's a difference between a direct hose connection, and one that
leads through a radiator core.  The added restriction to flow in the
aux. radiator should prevent coolant from bypassing the primary radiator
core (and it cools pretty well out there in front).

	I considered the 2Bennett rad - an Alu rad that replaces the
OEM. Is this the same as the 034EFI rad?

 I haven't seen the 2Bennett version, but it likely is the same setup as
the 034 unit.  Double core, so thicker than stock, all metal.  I had
some issues with my 034 radiator and I'm going back to a stock unit,
with an aux. radiator.
