Anyone got a opinion on a cheap radiator for my race car? It is a blank canvas and will have a 455 block front plate electrical water pump.

Depends on how much room you have, I would assume quite a bit so take a look at the BeCool "Boneyard" series. Summit has them for $260 but I found them on ebay for $204. That's the unit I'm going to run in my '40 ****** coupe.

Home made fuel injection intake! I did not make it! The guy who originally built this car did. I am taking a shell of a race car that has a messed up chassis no floor pans and a roll cage that could not be used because someone cut the door bars off to short.Per NHRA you can not add extra length to the bottom of a cage after it has been cut off .That is call slugging it you get caught you are banned for life from every NHRA track. So I had a new funny car cage installed. I am attempting to revive this Race car to be able to race it at NHRA tracks.

I’m pretty sure I found a right up on it or something quite a while ago on an old website called anglefire after reading a debate on rop and wanted to find more info on the car. Very interesting car and history it’s cool that your saving it.

Yes I found the car in Canada. Angel fire was where several pictures were posted as well as the guy who built this car in the beginning.

Neeley,
I've got a Summit $180 aluminum 2 row. It fits well, and cools well.

Come on and let the time pass! I need the 25th to get here quicker. Maybe I will just take the block in a little sooner to be bored. Hmm maybe I should take the diesel block and get the 409
stroked crank cut to fit that block too!!!
