    a lot of people run a lt1 radiator it holds more coolant just block of two holes and good to go

    I went with an aluminum becool radiator from the ws6store I recomend this if you have over 500 to spend on a radiator

    Start looking through the For Sale adds. Alot of FI guys ditch their radiators for a aftermarket piece. LT1 or LS1 will both work.

    Your not going to see any added benefit from a aftermarket $500+ radiator in your case. Buy a used stocker.

    50 bucks shipped is a great price. I just did a quick search for you and found 3-4 and the lowest I found was $75 and high of $125. As long as its not some cheap China made piece, I would say thats a good deal.
