I should add that I ended up buying a new radiator about a year later because I had overheating issues.

I went to spikes and it was $145. A little steeper than I expected but he knows his radiators

Just an update. I went to Spike and he told me over $600. I about wet myself. He said my core needed to be swapped. $500 for that part and 125 in labor.
I bought a new 4 row for less than half that through my supplier. He seemed to know his stuff, but no way I'm dropping that kind of money on a used radiator when I can buy new and recycle the old for a few bucks.

is that for a recore? there's a place in commerce city, on the frontage road jsut south of the fleamarket that quoted pighead a recore of his 55 rad for $350

they also reattached his overflow nipple for free. did a good job. not much to judge quality on, but at least it's something

500 was for the "high efficiency" 4 row. 400 if I used a 3 row, then the labor to do it in either configuration. I really didn't understand, as it just seemed crazy high to me either way. I think my new 4 row is in-line and not the high efficiency style, but honestly, I never had a problem with cooling capacity. For my end price, it would have been silly to re-core my old one.
