    I run a Griffin. Its not the best, but it works. They are certainly 1/2 the price of a Ron Davis for a reason.

    Try summit. I dont know much about radiators or have any experience with anything other then the stock one but summit makes some for a little less then $200 but I dont know about the quality.

    Summit and Jegs both sell the Northern brand radiators, but not under this name. They have a universal radiator, no epoxy, no trans. cooler 19x31 for about $169.

    I ran this radiator in my big block 442. Dropped my temps 20+*. Good quality and it came in a Northern box and has a Northern sticker on it. :waytogo:

    I'm running one from Jegs in front of my 383. Works great and seems to be well built too.

    The quality looks great. I'm glad to hear they work well too. I just installed one and I'm firing the engine up this weekend.

    yeppers, the Summit 31"x19" all-AL radiator definitely looks like a good one and a good price. There are plenty of blinging AL rads in there that are double the price... :shocked:
