Somehow the thought of trusting my life to Harbor Fright jackstands just doesn't seem very appealing...

Love the headers and maybe on version 3.0 of my car I am going to do a 3" Stainless steel exhaust after seeing your headers.

Although I got side tracked by a couple other projects, still pushing forward with the Nova.

After a bunch of research, I ended up with a Be Cool radiator. I like that they moved the cap to the drivers side. That will make routing the catch can and LS steam line easier.

For fans I went with a Ford Contour setup. I like the oem fan setups for reliability and noise level. This also calls back to my foxbody mustang experience

John-what factors led you to choose a Be Cool radiator?

That Ford Contour fan setup is a great unit. Iíve used it before on several Fox Body toys in the past.

Like I mentioned above, it's actual made for a Nova. I returned another name brand radiator that was labeled to fit "x-body". It was really a camaro radiator... I would have had to adapt the nova to flange mount

I like the radiator cap on the passenger side. I'm planning to keep the battery up front and the AC components are over there too... so not a lot of room for the catch can. Lastly, I like the LS vent tube on the drivers side, although that's not as big a deal.

Last part was the fan setup. This radiator provides a core area big enough for the dual fans. Most "Nova" spec LS radiators are narrower cores. I would have ran a mark VIII singe fan in that case.

I seriously considered a "Summit" branded radiator, but they were back ordered.

*forgot to add.. the Be-Cool radiator is a beautiful piece! Very impressed with it.
