Default Aftermarket radiator

Looking for some input on aftermarket radiator for my 70 Camaro with LSA engine, auto trans. I'm planning on using the stock radiator support, which GM designed so the radiator sits on the bottom of the support. Planning on doing something with dual fans and both inlet and outlet on right side...... Any suggestions on the "best set-up?

Frostbite (holley)

All have ls swap radiators. Tons of info on them as well.

I am not sure which of the above I'm going with for my LSA swap. I'm leaning towards Superior or Afco.

Fan kits, wiring kits (some with PWM options) all come into play as well.

We pretty much use Be Cool exclusively.

They're really nice.

They're a little more expensive than some, but super high quality.

Let me know if you need a quote.

What are you going to do with the car? Street cruiser? Autocross? HPDE / Track Days? And in what climate?

Questions to ponder to make sure you end up with the right cooling system...

Ron Davis? I never heard of these guys? I was leaning towards Autorad for my LSA swap in the first gen

C&R or Autorad.

Had a BeCool in my Chevelle. Took 3 times for them to get it right. Every one of them were warped and not square. You placed it on the ground flat and it would wobble like a table with uneven feet. Wouldn't sit flush on the core support. Eventually swapped it for a Ron Davis piece. Was nice.
