Nice build.

Is that an afco dual pass radiator? if so whats the part number?

Also, why not use a 4L80e? That 4L60e isn't going to hold up to much power on a turbo 6.0.

Car looks badass. what kind of rims? torque thrust II?

I'll have to get te radiator info tomorrow
There are several of us that have turbo 6 liters running 4l60e and all are holding up well so far. My car isn't even the heaviest so I'm hoping it will be fine
The wheels are Boss wheels. I think they are Boss 332's

Looks like you're using an aftermarket AC system. Are you using the LQ4 variable displacement compressor with it, or did you find a standard compressor?

The radiator is from ebay $179.99 plus $20 for shipping
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...TQ:MOTORS:1123

yes I'm using an aftermarket AC system (Classic Air) The AC compressor is a regular AC compressor, but not exactly sure what it came off of, 94LS1Bird (John) had it laying around at his house.

Thanks for the info on radiator and fans. I might look into using that on my build also.

WHat kind of intake are you going to run?

I am using the edelbrock pro-flo XT with my twin turbos, are you using the truck intake?
