Nuclear service presents much more severe conditions and criticality so it may not be a valid comparison.
Actually the conditions on the car are really more severe than the primary system of a nuclear power plant, the temp. extremes are similar and the primary system has a very carefully controlled chemical environment not anything like the weather extremes the headers endure not to mention the heat soak extremes I believe metallurgy wise it is a very valid comparison, stress cracking in SS only needs temps over 200 deg. and chlorides which are naturally present and the wrong type of metal in contact with it. I would only do it for however long it takes to get the heat exchangers on there.
" Porsche there is no substitute" I always liked that saying. Air cooled is the only way to go!
