Hello guys and ladies,
I know this has been beaten to death already, but can't seem to get an answer for my application, even called BeCool. Guy was very nice, and e-mailed me three times, but not completely satisfied with the answer.
I live in SW Florida, and don't drive the non-AC 69 much in the summer. My question is about the 406" SBC based on Dart SHP block, not an original 400 block that I just put in. Been outta town for 2 months, and kinda forgot what you guys recommended to me. The motor should be well over 500hp, and want to go with a decent aluminum radiator that will:
1) cool this motor here in FL
2) bolt right in and have lower shroud mounts allowing me to use factory shroud
3) stay under $300.
Can't seem to get the part numbers of a radiator that will meet all three requirements. Am using thermal clutch and 6-blade fan, and definitely don't want electric fans. Don't like the look at all. Don't care if the aluminum one looks original at all, just want the cooling fit, and price to be right.
Also for my own knowledge, is the 69 core support the same for both small and big block? One last time, suggestion please/
Thanks as always. Appreciate the patience.
