Actually the PA160 has about half the total metal-air surface area of the Chevette heater-core.

A) Is the not predictable given the relationship between surface are and heat dissipation?
At half the surface area? No.

Achieving better performance with far less surface area.

Read back through this thread. The answers and reasoning are there.
