    So I am ditching my stock radiator for a monster aluminum one since I am having some cooling issues. The new one doesnt have the fitting for the heater hose. So can I just hook it up to the top fitting on the waterpump??

    With my propane I need the heater hoses so its hooked up like this : intake----vaporizer-----radiator. So can I hook the radiator side hose to the waterpump???

    hehe, my thread probably came up... :D

    I would actually prefer running it over to the pump. I can run it shorter and cleaner I think... Free up a little space...

    Yea overall its a very nice radiator, nice welds, and very well made. As for fitment. Well its not being put into a stock K5 with all the sheetmetal:D Its about as thick as a 4 core radiator.
