Default v8 radiator help

i bought a 4runner with a small block chevy in it and it came with a 89 'runner V6 radiator but it looks way too small to me. is there a way i can run a bigger radiator and an electric fan and still be able to keep my grill or do i need to run a radiator in the rear instead? i looked around on Yotatech but didn't see much that was helpful. also, where can i find alternator brackets for a short style water pump?

im using downey offroads mounts (they give you about 6''-8'' of movement front to back) and notching my firewall (about 3'') to put a radiator in the front of mine

side note: i have an 87 ex cab on an 83 short bed frame 3 1/2'' body lift

I ran this in mine


Worked good only time it got hot on me was in the mud or doing long burn outs. I had 2 10in electric fans mounted in front of the radiator. Bought a 16in fan that was 3100cfm to see if that would work better but never got a chance to try it out. Figured that would of helped alot. Was also running a short water pump.

That setup would cool a stock/mild 350 very well. Mine has alumin heads, cam, headers, intake etc etc.

Next time im gonna use a alumin rad and as much fan as i can fit. Also gonna put a oil cooler on to help. Ill try and find the alum one i plan on getting. Bit cheaper then the one above

Heres the build thread on it all
