do you think that a 26x19 radiator would be too small for a street stock 358?

a 26 only holds 1.75 quarts less water than a 31. no problem

I bought a 26 to save weight from a 31 and its only about 3 lbs difference total full of water even.

As long as the rows are big enough. Ex...4 rows of 1/4", 3 rows of 1/2". The 3 row will run cooler than the 4. Had a problem one time swapping out 2 3row radiators. It heated the next week. One rad. had 1/4" rows and the other had 1/2" rows. If you can find a 4 row w/ 1/2 rows that's plenty.

I had an overheating problem with a 27.5" x 19" aluminum 2 row 1" tube rad. Changed to this one from Griffin with 1.25" tubes(Summit Racing price) GRI-1-55222-X
$259.95

No problems since.. actually need a T-stat to keep the temps up when it's cool out.
