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

9500 CFM........ doubt it.

I am running two pusher 1000 cfm fans, and it cools fine.....

is there any other way to stand up the radiator and make everything look good?

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.
