looking for a fairly cheap used one.
Why?


If you gotta have used, just go to the junkyard and try to find a larger (or newer) van or truck; a lot of them come with tranny coolers. Of course, then you're dealing with age, which leads me to the original question of why would you want a "quality" used one when new ones arn't that expensive?

Most junkyard parts are incredibly cheap. One time I got my cousin a pretty good condition intercooler off a Thunderbird Turbocoupe for $10 from a self-help junkyard. It was so worth it.

Well, arn't you a nice fella?



You may be able to find junkyards listed online, too. Pick a Part's are popular; thats where my local mechanic gets his stuff.

Yeah, you can ask a trusted mechanic friend if he knows of any junkyards around. They usually do, seeing that they sometimes get body panels, doors and other parts from there. If you're lucky, you'll have like a bunch of junkyards located within feet of each other.

my brother picked up a brand new one at an auto value store for $20.
Yeah, Autozone and Advance Auto parts have them for around $30-40 most of the time, at least near me. Not too expensive at all, and they're brand new.

If you want a stacked plate cooler, you can just order it online; honestly, if you go to the junkyards, most of the coolers you will find are tube and fin designs as well; they are cheaper to manufacture.

Why try to save maybe $5-10 and go through all this trouble, when you can just go to jegs or summit racing and order the cheapest, BM stacked plate cooler they have?
