    Yep, no problems with mine. I got about 7,000 miles on my H.E. and it has not moved. Works great too.

    The covers and the bumper cover keep it from being able to move at all. We have over 250 i have built now and sold in the past years, and i still dont see a need for the brackets, but they are easy to put on for those that want them. It is just 2 L shapes on the end tanks. But to pull a front bumper just to install one is a pain.
    I guess it's the engineer in myself or the fact that I have ruined so many things by doing it the not smart way. I haven't taked a look to see, and I'm not doubting you Jesse, I'm just saying when I buy one, it will be bolted on because that's just me. To all the others it's your own descision, and I would venture to say it sounds like it will do just find since you only have what appears 1 failure in 250 sample size, pretty good odds IMO.

    I note that people leave the stock H/E in the car. Is there any reason to not pull it out? Is it really adding that much cooling capacity to the much larger, after-market H/E?

    Anyone ever get an answer on why you would leave the stock H/E in the car?

    Many guys will run the OEM H/E in tandem with an aftermarket unit: not only does it drastically increase the net effective surface area and fluid volume (ie 2 exchangers vs just one; more fluid = more stable/lower temps); but there are also some perceived advantages to having both. Having one exchanger down low in the bumper is more efficient at speed (cleaner airflow), and having an exchanger higher up near the radiator can theoretically take advantage of the fans when the car is sitting still.

    Whether or not this is truly effective I don't know - but there are several discussions on this over on the "other" sight in the "cooling" subforum.
