How to identify Pro-Alloy radiator?

Hi Guys,

Iíve got a 2009 Exige Cup 260 that Iíve got the front clam off. Iíve also got 1 of 12 track only cars ever built by Lotus - so there is not a whole bunch of information out on it. While the clam is off (Iím doing the cooling mods), I noticed that the radiator is 45-mm thick and has welded cans on itÖthat is, it does not have plastic cans. Now Iím assuming that Iíve a got Pro-Alloy radiator, so Iím wondering if Iíve got the triple-pass one or the single-pass radiatorÖIs there any way to identify the radiator? Is there a way to tell from the outside if Iíve got the single or triple pass one?

Thanks,

JJ

iirc, pro-alloy only makes a triple pass

are there any stickers on the radiator anywhere that could give you a hint of the manufacturer?
