run a three core rad, and call lenny at ultimate convertor concepts he will hook you up with a great convertor, probably one of the best convertor guys in the counrty. just my 2 cents though.

Radiator: Griffin aluminum (it's a thick 2 core) with a Ford Contour dual fan - the fan has a factory resistor that you can wire it up (with 2 switches) to run high (full voltage) or low (about 7 volts). Works GREAT.

Converter: only one call to make - Lenny at Ultimate Converter Concepts. He did an 8" for me.... Awesome!!!!!!!!! I sent him my chassis dyno (w/ 5 speed) curve along with some other details. He nailed the stall the first time AND was 0.5 seconds (yes, 1/2 second) faster than the previous 9" I had...

I am running a BECOOL Direct replacement radiator with a Dodge Minvan fan. The shroud covers the whole radiator and it cools pretty quickly without drawing too many amps. I run a UCC convertor with a 6700 stall. I run a 15:1 compression race motor. The car is usually around 110-120 dgrees coming out of the waterbox. At the end of the run its 140-150 degrees depending on its a 1/4 or 1/8 mile run.
