Default Radiator shroud/cooling plate question

I couldn't find a forum for cooling systems so I thought to ask it here. I've seen radiator shrouds/cooling plates ranging anywhere from $30 to $110. It seems like they'd all do the same job and many of them look like they're shapped the same. Some have more holes than others. I'm sure they're all lightweight. Is there a reason some are much more expensive than others or is it just paying for the name? Basically I'm tryin to figure out if it's ok to get the crucial one for around $30 or if theres a reason to spend $110 for the Cusco one.

Basically all for looks. Price would evolve around the quality and name. I would either get the crucial or perrin, both are nice.

ok cool, thats what I was thinkin. I figured as long as it's on top of the radiator, it'll help prevent the air from escaping and basically do the same job. Thanks
