Bought one for a 51 off of ebay for 150 i believe. Fits well and looks well made.

Re: ls swap radiator

I used a Superior radiator. They make them for LS swaps with the steam port if needed. I put it in last year and have been very happy with it.

Re: ls swap radiator

The 22 inch wide one from Speedway works well for me if you are not trying to make it look original. https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Speed...evy,23864.html

Re: ls swap radiator

I got one for my 55.2 with 6.0 LS off ebay for 130. They've gone up in price. I also ordered a 5/16"hose barb from sweet performance and tigged it in for the steam port.
These have very nice welds and the quality is nice and don't have to spend 1200.00.

We make bolt-in custom / conversion radiators for your application, right here in the USA using domestically sourced materials. Each radiator is built by hand and we use dual 1" thick cores, for a total core thickness of 2" (same overall thickness as a brass & copper 4-core). We have also made our radiators a little shorter for those that have custom configurations / less room than stock.

We NEVER charge extra for engine swap port locations, steam ports or built-in transmission coolers.

We are a Gold Vendor and support this forum, and offer a forum-member discount ($25 off a radiator / $20 off fan & shroud package).

Hit me up with any questions or for a quote.
