Can anyone give me some advise on the best aluminum radiator out there? I am dropping in my big block in my 68 rs and want the most cooling power. I have heard good things about be-cool and griffen but which is better? Any first hand experiance with big blocks would be much apreciated.

the griffin generic fit is cheaper (~$190?) The be cool is around $260. I know a guy running a hot small block with one and never has problems.

What size is the Griffen generic? or do you just order based upon the model of car? Also, do you have to fabricate some sort of mounting brackets? Lastly, I read somewhere that there isn't a petcock on the aluminum radiators. One guy said he put one in the block to drain the coolant. Just where do you put this?
