Agree with Shane. If you want specifics that people have reported on the cheap ones:
1) Poor build quality, some buyers have reported them sufficiently misshapen that installing the supports and hood was difficult to impossible.
2) Poor handling during build/shipping, bent fins etc. (either straighten them or risk poor airflow).
3) Inferior design, fewer cooling tubes reducing cooling efficiency.
4) Thin materials, higher risk of leaks.

The $100 one on Amazon and the $200 ones on other websites are the SAME RADIATOR. They are all made in the same overseas factory, and are sold wholesale to anyone that orders them. Difference is simply price; you do not get what you pay for.

Clancy is the only supplier that sells a radiator not made in an overseas factory, though they themselves are overseas relatively speaking (Ireland).

That said I put a $100 radiator in my Cub. It is definitely not as robust as the original, but it fit fine and is serving the purpose.
