Installed the new radiator this weekend. It turned out really well. I
put some pictures of it in the photos tab for those of you that asked
for it.

The pictures look really good, Sam. Details? What shroud/fan assy did you use? What xmission cooler? (it looks custom) Are they standard cores or did you go special? Thanks, --Larry

You can reuse old the fan shroud or just add two 90 deg mounting
brackets. If you want all the original brackets, it can easily be
made that way. The one pictured was a prototype, so I have to make
one adjustment on the bracket. On the item you referred to as an
emission cooler, this is two separate oil coolers, an engine oil
cooler and transmision cooler. Note, fans for radiator are
variable speed controlled to cut down on noise. The main radiator
cores are for a low pressure antifreeze system, and the oil cooler
cores are for a high pressure oil system. All of which are special
order cores. I am still awaiting a total breakdown from my
manufacturer regarding cost. The unit seen in the pics was
$1295.00, which includes everything seen (radiator, fans,
oil/transmission cooler, etc.) If anyone is interested the
manufacturer was Smith Radiators. Talk to Tony at (765) 478-5325.
You can get it direct from him, that way there is no middle man. He
also has a stock radiator on site that copied my prototype off of.
Hope this helps all the Amphifans out there.

I can't get to the computer very often, so if you need to talk to me
it might be quicker to reach me on my cell (317) 538-8946.

Have a great weekend.
