my problem is,is that i dont have a big enough radiator in my jeep for the 350. i have a 16.5 x 17.5 core alum. 2 row, one inch core. and a 16" 2200 cfm electric fan. This set up is not working...i get temps in the high 230's at a stop (traffic lights). once driving forward the temps go down to a normal range of 198-210* (forward ram of incoming air) so what radiator do i need? and where can i find one? im guessing i'll need a 3 row. please help, its a daily driver, it's summer, and im tired of running red lights!:bottom: THANKS!

Minimum 3 row and your fan speed is not high enough, try a 3000+ fan (look up Taurus fan conversion) or get a dual setup and if it still runs hot install a pusher fan in the front of the radiator. I ran a dual setup and had one kick on up to 180* and after that the second would kick in as well to keep it cool.

Here are some helpful links for you, read up and you will know more than you wanted to :rofl:
