You have both the inlet and the outlet on one side, hunh? Interesting. Looks like a good little radiator tech article is brewing.

Brew away, and yes, both are on the same side....i thought it was funny, but all the old chevy truck guys putting these motors in say they can use the stock hoses, i'm not sure if those are new motor stock hoses (i would assume so) or old school ones

That still looks like it's gonna be awfully close, maybe the picture doesn't show the amount of room that there really is. There's not much worse than putting a fan blade into a radiator. Makes for a shitty day in a hurry.

Just don't hit anything that will send the radiator into the motor...you'll be fine :-)

you have to account for frame twist, I know you like to think it doesn't happen but it does. like I said it's just me if you're comfortable with it cool.

We'll see what happens...i don't like it that close either...but we'll see what we can do...i don't like the 14" rear driveshaft either...

Edit: right now it's an 18" rear shaft

There's no way i'd keep that motor cool enough with electric fans and a stock sized radiator, yeah i got the three core, but adding cores doesn't help near as much as adding size. my cube neighbor did a study on them in college, and by adding 1" to the width, it cooled almost double that of adding another core (ie. 2 to 3 core) So stock fan it is...with a custom shroud...

You'll never move the same amount of air with a reasonably priced efan as you can with a stock mechanical fan


just my opinion


and i'm on a budget...can't afford a $500 freakin fan...

That's where the aluminum radiators are really nice, but you're looking at it in person I'm lookin at a picture so it may be completely different than it appears.
