Stacked plate is the most efficient from what I've read.
I have a 24k from Hayden, and it works very well. I ran into a speedbump when installing it - I had to cut some material from the factory radiator fitting to make the "quick-connect" fitting work.

Ditto the above. Also, as a lesser thing, the stacked plate design is MUCH more durable. The tube and fin will bend and get all ugly if you're not careful.
