I think for us dirt stock guys they're pretty much the same. We have used several different brands on our I-Stock and they all seem to work just as well as the next. So now we just order the least expensive aluminum rad from Speedway. Heck, half the time now we have to tape off the grill to build enuff heat.

Has anyone found a good radiator with a trans cooler in it? I'm stuck with a TH350 at my track.

We run a 4 core from napa part # cu 101. It has cooling fittings for auto. It costs about $160

A guy at work brought one of those speedway radiators in to make a bracket for it and it looked like somebody had a coughing fit while welding it. I have an afco and it works good for me.
Hutch I run a tranny cooler for my t350 made for a big rv from Advance and my fluid has always been the same color from beginning of the year to the end.

you can get a 20.00 rad cooler from any parts store and it will work fine. we ran a p/g with a dog in it for 3 years with no cooler at all..

ive talked to 5 diff trans builders, and they said as long as it doesnt have to shift no cooler is fine on a dirt car..
