    Maggie Heat exchanger Price

    So I punctured my HEX when trying to install a new alradco radiator.. frustrating to say the least. So I called magnuson expecting a replacement to cost no more than $300. Well turns out a replacement is $900. does this sound right? This heat exchnager is so smaller and simple could it really be that pricey?

    Holy balls that is expensive! I seem to remember my dad's buddy has a maggie and his replacement H/E only cost like $450? I could be mistaken though. I would see if a good radiator guy can put a new core in it or something. I would do a lot of groundwork before I spent $900 on a replacement.

    See if you have a radiator shop local to you. How bad did you "puncture" it? 1 tube? multiple? really bashed it? A radiator shop shop be able to repair or re-core it. You may be able to find a GOOD (really good) tig welder that could weld the hole in the tube (would have to remove some fins probably for access, but better than $900). Worse case scenario if you really are desperate and it is a small hole, pinch that portion of tube, clean it very well and epoxy it. When I did fleet work for construction vehicles, we actually did this fairly often on aluminum heat exchangers and never had further issues. I certainly wouldn't do it as a professional customer based technician, but the maggie cooler will only see a couple psi from thermal expansion.

    I appreciate the offer and you're an amazing vendor to work with. I went ahead and went to a local shop as I'm in a time crunch to get the car back together before I leave for vacation.
