I have a v8 swap planned also and will try the 6 cylinder radiator with a high flow water pump and a electric pusher fan to see if she keeps her cool....fingers crossed :popcorn:

I really dont think the stock rad will handle the v8. I know advance adaptors has one. There are others. Not sure which one i am using yet.

I got a 350 in mine and am running novaks aluminum radlock radiator with the integrated aluminum shroud and the heavy duty 3800cfm electric fan the setup will support up to 500hp needless to say I have zero heating issues. Its a really nice piece the way it mounts is it has these brackets with rubber pads on them that basically pinch the aluminum tanks on the side of the radiator so when Im wheeling and banging rocks and stuff the jarring is a lot less stress on the radiator I highly suggest it. But its also about a grand...
