    Smile upgrading to new radiator

    In the future i plan on swapping to a bigger engine and am slowly replacing stuff one by one. I want to go to a bigger better flowing radiator. Im wanting 2 fans on a relayed switch and manually controlled. Does anyone have any info or advice for me on what radiator to pick

    Lt1 has the biggest stock rad, and you can use the dual fan setup that the 3.8, lt1 and ls1 got.

    Well i read up on radiators last night and checked summit the V8 & V6 used the same width & height radiators. I've heard the LT1's were thicker or something. But none the less i want a dual fan setup with an all aluminum radiator. It seems since its mostly the same dimensions i can use same size for my v6 that will work for my future v8 swap

    Yeah, the ls1 guys often swap to the lt1 rad when they need more cooling. As Kris said, they're the best stock ones.
