Thank you,

4 months after payment and no IC......

That is taking it a little too far IMHO

OEM is probably around 10 pounds. You can hold it with one hand.

VK is around 25 pounds - you need two hands to handle it.

There is a lot more thermal mass to the VK compared to stock.

More themal mass is better cooling and 10 lbs heavier means nothing ..almost all after market IC are about the same or heavier due to AL endtanks as opposed to plastic stock ones. Plus the bigger core helps too.

I am sure this is an isolated case..if not this will be all over the forums with 100 ppl yelling ....Vince is a stand up guy and will take care of this if this is indeed a missed shipment or an error of some sort.

I had to trim a small bit off the edge of the fan to make it fit.

335 RHD, not sure if that's the reason or not but it's hardly noticable.
