posted December 15, 2003 07:03 PM
i have been running afco 31" aluminum radiators abd had good luck. car get to maybe 210 on a very hot night. i see alot of guys going smaller and i would like to just to get the weight off the front end. will going to say a 27.5 inch make my car run much hotter assumming all things are equal?
the motor is a 12.1 383 race gas with a 890 2bbl in a stockcar.

thanks for any input.

sure i'll sell you the 383.....for a price!
i run a moroso aluminum pump with 15% reductions. i think im gonna go 1 to 1 and try the smaller radiator. i never run hot at arlington with the small carb....180 on a hot day. 160 on a colder day.

I would look elsewhere to lighten the front end.
