How do I figure out how many core my radiator is?

I am thinking of upgrading my radiator to a 4 core to help with cooling, but I am not sure what core I currently have (if I already have 4, obviously, what's the point). How do I figure it out?

Re: How do I figure out how many core my radiator is?

take off the radiator cap and count how many tubes are lined up front to back. a 2 row will have 2, a 3 row will have 3, and a 4 row will have 4.
if your car is stock, a good 2 core will get the job done. it's all about getting the water to flow thru it, and having enough airflow thru it to take away the ehat.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
