Seeking net wisdom on comparison of radiator made from aluminum vs.
copper-brass that's found on the stock Audis. My understanding is that
aluminum can dissipate heat better, however, it's less resistant to thermo-
expansion and contraction and therefore, more prone to crack. For two
radiators of identical external dimensions, can one get more cooling by going
with the original copper-brass one but with more tubings of smaller diameter
or are you still better off with an aluminum one that is identical to the
original one with the same size tubing ?
Thanks in Advance
