Lightbulb BBC Radiator recommendations

I have a 69 Camaro that I am swapping in a BBC into (should be around 500-550 hp), and I need to replace the stock radiator with something more beefy.

Any recommendations on good radiator manufacturers? What people think about:
Be-Cool
Griffin Radiator
Ron Davis

I have heard that Spal fans are the best. I was thinking of going with the Ron Davis radiator that is a direct fit for 67-69 Camaros (P/N 11-16CA67 with coolant recovery tank and dual 13" Spal fans)

Oh, also I'm using stock (aftermarket) BBC shroud and 7-blade fan and clutch.

This is the best there is.... http://www.fluidyne.com/pl_hpdomestics.html

Aluminum, three-row and will drop right in! About 25% more cooling capacity than any alum two-row. But, I will admit that Alumitech is a great product as well.
