    So on my charger im going to be running what looks like a 512 stroker with a 727 behind it (for now) What are my options for a good quality great cooling radiator. As of right now i have zero cooling products so this will be built from the ground up. This is including water pump, radiator, hoses, fans, ects. I would prefer to find a radiator that i can find some form fitted hoses so it looks a little nicer.

    Currently have been looking at the mancini racing 26 radiators, with some of their hoses.

    Any thoughts?

    I've been using Be Cool w/ their dual fan set up. Zero issues. But expensive.

      I used a $200 Afco 3 pass aluminum radiator with a $135 SPAL 16 inch fan.

        Glen Ray for me. Stock rad with the max cool package and a 7 blade fan. Idles at 180-190 on the hottest days in traffic, all day and looks correct with no overflow hose swinging around and all that nonsense. Cheap aluminum radiator I had ran hotter than this rad. Big power, big money radiator= no ass puckering moments in traffic or idling.

          I haven't finished the car yet but, I purchased a Wizard radiator/fan package for my 540. It sure is pretty though!

              Wizard makes some great stuff.I have used their products before. That's if that is your style. BUT for me it's factory copper. I run a E body Hemi rad in my 65 with a factory clutch fan.
