Default C16SE radiator options

I have a C16SE engine fitted in and Allspeed subframe with a removable steel front end.

I have an MPI radiator fitted at the moment but it definitely runs a little hot. I need to remake the mount as its not great so though I might as well change it for something better.

I am thinking of going with a cross b radiator like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-C...cAAOSw4A5YtBqG. These are quite a tight fit? and may need bending?

I have done a search but it doesn't really bring up any pictures. Does anyone have any of this kind of radiator fitted or have suggestions of something better?

Apparently they offer about 40% better cooling over standard so sounds like a good option. Will probably get one from china though
