FFR is 2 core. I don't think anyone makes a 3 core in aluminum. You'll most see there either 1" or 1-1/4" tube one or two row.
Get the Afco from FFR. Great product and fit made for the FFR. It'll keep you cool.

Remember, an aluminum radiator will transfer heat, read than "cool", better than a brass radiator. Therefore, the number of rows doesn't translate between the two materials. An aluminum radiator of certain length and width with two rows of 1" tubes will cool as well as if not better than a brass radiator of similar size with four rows of tubes. Most high performance radiators I have seen have two rows of 1" tubes and do a very nice job.
