New radiator came in today. Obviously from the pics we went with CBR. I had looked around and they had a stock setup that was 24x19 with 2 1" cores and a built in shroud for a 16" Spal fan. I called to ask a few questions and check on availability and ended up ordering the radiator. They confirmed it had the recommended Spal fan for offroad (no surprise) and we talked about what we were doing. He said they would build to order, so I had them make it with 1.25" upper and 1.5" lower so we didn't need to step down the hose size to the Gen3/4 V8 like on most universals. They also added the steam port so we can run it direct to the radiator.

The final thing and what I really like was the fan support. I have only noticed this on CBR radiators, and I hope it helps stabilize the fan while we beat the tar out of the unit. Fit and finish is beautiful, and it's built like a tank. Shipping packaging was also very good. UPS had managed to punch a hole in the box, but with the shipping paper they use the radiator is in great shape.
