I need some advise.. I purchased a Summit 380325 Radiator.. The radiator I had was a bit wider and I had the Flex-a-lite dual fans. The size of the fans is 26.5 x 15.5 and the size of my new radiator is 21 x 19 .. I have a single fan 12 fan that I can use.. I have a 383 running about 9.6 to 1 compression and also am running A/C.. I was wondering if anyone else is running the Summit radiator and a single fan and it if keeps them cool.. I would think the aluminum radiator would help...

my dad has a monte carlo with a 540 in it. it makes about 925 horse and has gone [email protected] it has a summit alum. radiator, csi electric pump, and a cast thermostat housing. runs fairly cool for a racecar(165-205) granted weve never raced in the summer yet with this radiator.

If you have the 380325 radiator a Taurus fan is about a perfect fit. We've done a couple of cars with this setup, including our 64 road racer. Lenny Bird has this setup in his 64 also.

I'd try to put as much cooling potential there as possible on an AC car and let the thermostat do its job. Cheers!
