Those are nice looking units and a good value as a kit but I don't see how you could get much heat out of those exchangers. There is not much surface area there. The GHLs that I have experience with have a similar design and do not produce any useful heat.
304 is inadequate for the application in my opinion. You need a larger margin of heat tolerance given the many different engine setups and uses these cars see.
I'm all about saving money but these potential issues need to be considered.
