Radiators for LS

So what radiators are you guys using for your LS swaps. Anyone using a larger than typical radiator?

I believe I'm going to open up the hole in my radiator support and see how big of a radiator I can install. Between the A/C condensor, intercooler, power steering cooler, trans cooler, turbo, I'm going to be generating some heat in the engine bay.

Re: Radiators for LS

I am using my "old" 23 inch BE-cool one that I had before my LS swap. I found some hoses that worked with the corvette water pump and haven't had any issues in 2 years of driving it.

Re: Radiators for LS

For my LS3 swaps I am using Entropy radiators. For my LSA swap I am using a C&R radiator with integrated oil, power steering and transmission (6L90E) coolers. I am also using their intercooler.

Re: Radiators for LS

On my 69/LSA I'm using a dual pass PRC radiator with an oil cooler in it. It was for a BBC so I'm using Napa hose adapters to get the hose sizes to match up.

Re: Radiators for LS

I use a Griffin dual pass on my LSA. Just went through an Australian summer with no problems at all. I also use a modified ZL1 AFCO heat exchanger, has worked really well also.
