The FF cooler was used on all 1962 Corvairs.  
Starting in 1963 the plate-type cooler was used on all Corvairs. The 12  
Plate cooler is superior to the FF cooler in several ways:  Less  restrictive 
to airflow. Better oil cooling at high speeds and less likely to  plug-up 
with dirt/dust, etc.

Is it  better (more effective) than the 12-plate? Did the early 62-63, and 
64 turbos  use it?
Just curious.
