Default Radiator and intercooler sizes

Hi guys, I've searched my *** off and really didn't want to post a stupid question but here it goes. Car is a 95' and I will be running 250-300 hp on the street with a coolant reroute. No track days or autox. Every search I try relates to track cars so for a street car that will be driven hard should I get a 37mm or 55mm radiator? Also what brand is best and which fans to order with the rad. As for the intercooler I just need to know what the biggest size core I can fit is. Thanks for te help, much appreciated

Do you have A/C? If no A/C for the street the stock radiator should be fine.

No AC, sorry. I don't want to use my stock one over. It's old and seen better days. Would a 37mm koyo it mishimoto(spelling?) be good?

37mm Koyo would be more than fine.

Or try the 55mm Ebay radiator that seems to be 100% identical to the Mishi.

But honestly, you could get away with a Koyo stock replacement.
