I found these rads on eaby. they are going for around 150 average. They are out of Winston Cup cars. With some mods these could easly work. On most of them a cap would have to be welded on and the inlet is usally a AN fitting which would have to be changed. Also most have built in oil coolers which is really nice. Most of these average 17"x30"x4" in size

If youre going to go custom (fitting wise), id suggest a Griffin radiator. dual row, all aluminum, and $180 shipped. I forget the part number I got, but if you do a search in the forum you will find it. It has correct outlets, fits in the engine bay nicely, all you need to is make brakets.

The only Griffins I found were all over $300. Anyone know where I can get just a Rad. core with no tanks?
Thanks

HMP Motorsports<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]mine was in the $180's to my door from summit. (summit part number GRI-1-25222-X ). You have to cut out part of the hood support for the radiator cap so it will close.

My zip-tie rad. brackets are just temporary http://www.freshalloy.com/ http://www.planb-attack.com/Spork/SR/1.jpg

Kyle- im waiting on an EGR bolt (3 weeks), I lost the stock egr bolt that I plugged up. And im getting a flange welded on my hot pipe for my BOV. After that, It should be drivable... (crosses fingers). your rear suspension back on the car? you can email me back deceptakon@nc.rr.com

It looks like the sr has radiator inlets and outlets on oppisate sides, like a domestic, so thats probably why its so cheap. The KA has inlet and outlet on the same side which makes it a little bit harder to find.

What are the benifits of having an aluminum radiator instead of the OEM one? Does aluminum disipate heat better than OEM ones(whatever they are made out of)?

the one picture shows the griffin with an SR, but i am looking for something that will work with my KA, i do not really want to buy a 400 or 500 dollar radiator, can anyone suggest somthing. and i did check with search and only something about a VW rad and it was too small.
