go to your local radiator shop and see if they can order you a four core to fit your car if you have to run stock usualy cost around 165 and worht every penny in the long run if you can run aluminum griffen makes good ones

Guys, you need to check out Howe Radiators Radiators at www.alumrad.com I just got my hands on one of these, and I am very impressed. All welded, no epoxy like in Griffin. I have run Griffins in our mods for a long time now. Since, I got one of these from them, I won't be going back.

I've go a Howe. It is great... I wraped it around the steering box in my car and bent the tank about 45 degrees. Guess what...still racing with it and still holding water (knock on wood). Well worth getting one.

I used to run a griffin until it somehow got wrapped around my motor. I run afco now and I think they are built stronger, but there is no difference in the temp gauge between the two

USE A STOCK 3 CORE AND OTHER THAN PROBLEMS WITH THE ENGINE HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH OVERHEATING. THEY CAN BE GOTTEN A THE JUNK YARD CHEAP TO. I CARRY A SPARE JUST IN CASE AND THE 2 TOGETHER DON'T COST WHAT AN AFTERMARKET DOES.

Remember the stock junk yard radiators weigh alot more than the aluminum, so if you need more rear percentage why not get rid of some front weight while you are needing a radiator.
