Short of pulling a good one out of a wreckers yard?
160 sounds reasonable?

I just got a job at autozone and we get a 20% discount so i can get it a little bit cheeper than that. I was hoping to not have to spend more than 100 dollars. Oh well buy the way it made quite the mess. I just got done pulling out the whole interior so i could get the coolant the pooled up under the carpet. I hope i can get the smell out of the carpet.

Thing is they list it as AC heater core? Looks the same as the pic that Wren posted.

EDIT: This one Looks a bit bigger so probably different I dont know.

EDIT: I counted the fin lines and they seem to be the same.

True, but its cheap If you do buy it, is there any way to test it out of the car by filling it up with water to check for leaks? I wouldnt know as I have never had to change mine. (Thank god)
