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...

It seems a lot of companies like griffin are going overseas, and Iím reading ďa lot Ēof bad reviews on them. But I guess they used to be a lot better years ago. Seems quality has really gone down.

Entropy has a lifetime warranty. I got for my 69 LSA project. Itís made very well and the fans seem to be very powerful.

Using a Cold Case in my 461 BBC 69 Camaro. The radiator brackets locate the radiator 5/8" further back than the stock radiator, seems to be the only complaint many users have had. I had my brackets cut off and re-welded same as factory radiators. Otherwise really nice quality and customer support. It has two tubes that are 1-1/4" which is pretty impressive.

Works fine but I suspect my fans could be more powerful.-Mike
