i removed my upper and lower core support. my griffin radiator "hangs" in the space.

this cover, hides the radiator

since I couldnt fill the radiator with that cover on there, this fill/overflow container was made

i would mount the turbo and try to get the stock raditor in there. if al else fails you have to buy a aftermarket shorter one and puit it vertical. and i would try to use the stock fans. i found a site that did a flow test on the stock fans and they pull 9500cfm. i used two 2500cfm fand and they didnt cool it so i put two more and still wouldnt cool i stuck the stock ones on and stays at 185 all day

some people cut the lower radiator support out 100% and then they cut the bottom of the top out so the radiator sits right below it. then they cut a hole for the raditor cap. it looks clean but harder to do.

I'm running a bigger than stock 600hp Griffin radiator and Flex-a-lite 420 dual puller fans. I think I'm going to switch the fans out for something better though. Problem is very limited space due to compressor housing. Don't really have any more pics of what I did to accommodate the larger radiator.
