Definitely. We're expecting the prototype in a few weeks to check for fitment, and then we'll release pricing info.

Green circles inner and outer diameter (from SPAL schematic)
Black things would be the sheet metal brackets I'd make
Blue is the radiator area (only height is accurate)
here's how the 14" spal fan ACTUALLY looks like. I haven't mounted it or checked sway bar clearance - it looks good to me.

This may be a stupid question, but is it the same width as the OEM radiator? Just thicker (76mm), right?

What do you mean the same width, but just thicker? If it is thicker does that not mean it is not the same width?

the core thickness of the oem rad is MUCH thinner than the total thickness of the endtanks/mounts.

Well he should have said core thickness. I guess tonight I will attempt to measure different things since I have an OEM, ebay, and TSE radiators all at my house.

I guess I'm more or less asking about mounting locations, does it mount to the stock location?

It drops into the factory location with no modifications required to the car. You will need to trim the OEM fan to clear the swaybar.

NA cores arrived today! They will go off to our local fabricator to have fan bungs welded in, and current backorders will ship by the end of next week.

NB cores are ~4 weeks away.

I'm doing a Ford 302 V8 swap in an NA - mainly an HPDE track car, but street and AX use as well.
I saw mention of an 'NB V8' model - any issues with your standard NA radiator in V8 swaps?

You need to make some that slide under the front beam like the PRC unit for we V8 guys. I'm in need of a new radiator as this PRC unit has sprung a few leaks.

Not enough clearance to the engine as it installs now?
