LONG time ago in a land far away I put in a '89 F body V8 radiator in my '72 and modded hell outta the stock shroud and ran a ~16" fan in it, having converted to serp drive from a '88+ C4 move to FLORIDA and the cooling with that fan was just not up to snuff, I tired of playing around, looked at DeWitts Dual Spal fans and looked at some of the charts....and I tossed in a set of Dual Spals....found out a few years later I could/should have done some shopping, but they are still in the car, and will keep it cool on 150f daze with 99% humidity and off the freeway into stand still traffic, sniffing the catalytic converter outputs of the car ahead of it......
I running a 350 roller engine and auto, and plenty of rad cooling power NOW with the Spals.....they whine like a banshee, but just tell the guy it's a blower whine.....

I sent them an email saying basically that they could erase my account. Haha, guess they didn't like it, now they banned me.

not promoting DeWitts (I have Howe Radiators in my cars) but no one is holding a gun to anyones head to buy an over priced radiator

Following this line, I find it a bit funny (now that I have owned one for a decade and a half) how so many people think these cars are so special, so exotic. Really, they are not much more than just an old Chevy, albeit with some unique features and a greater pain-in-the-ass quotient than a Camaro or Chevelle.

They get nuts over there with dewitts radiators . The ones that kill me is a guy posts about bowl porting his 70 LT-1 heads and those nuts start telling him build a stroker motor changing cam and all sorts of garbage. It gets worse by the day.
