Looks good. Did you have to modify your firewall for the Gen 3 install?


Nope, no engine bay metal modifications required.

I bought the Bouchilon custom radiator by Griffin with the inlet and outlet on the passenger side just as the engine is set up. It's not cheap but nothing on this swap is.

Question, I did my 3G Hemi conversion 11 years ago and we didn't have all these options lol
I have a Ron Davis set up with twin spal fans.
The Bouchillon radiator setup states it includes an electronic fan controller. Did yours come with one? I know you didn't use it since you have the 392 crate set up which uses the ECM to turn them on.
If you did get fan controller, was it and electronic adjustable type?
Thanks for any light you can shed on this

Title says it all guys. What radiator are you guys running in your E-body Gen III cars?
What side do the in/out lets have to be on, and how big are they?

Thanks for the help in advance.

Remember it depends on whether you use a 5.7 from a truck or a car.  They are set up differently.  I have a truck 5.7 and a stock small block 26" radiator fit perfectly.  I had to make my own top hose though.
