    aftermarket radiator

    Has anyone used SLP's radiator? It looks like a plastic/aluminum radiator, similiar to the stock peice but it's supposed to cool better.

    Has anyone used a different all aluminum radiator?

    I have one in my garage about to be installed (beginning tomorroe). My TA, after the engine work, was runing around 210 degrees (used to run 190), and on a 90+ degree day it gets even hotter. SO I am planning a couple things to get her cooler. New rad, red line fluid, relocate trans cooler, and bypass the trans cooler inside radiator.

    It's actually going in an '88 Firebird, in front of an LS2. I was going to have a Ron Davis radiator built for it, but that'll run me $1K; that's a bit much considering I'm not building a racecar. So I'm looking at getting an aftermarket 4th Gen radiator. I'd like an all aluminum peice, so I'm not sure I want the SLP version. It seems like Be Cool might be the only other option.
