Re: Radiator R&R and upgrade, OEM + ?

Upgrade to the biggest oem one you can fit. I put the 4 row oem style autozone lifetime warranty one in my 98 to replace the 2 row and I literally can't get it to go 10* over the thermostat opening temp in AZ 118* heat in traffic. Bigger is better in this case.
-78 c10 short/step: 388cid, M20, 5/5 drop, lots more. Playtoy and first vehicle.
-98 c1500 x-cab: 5.7L, 17" rims, 5/6 drop, flowmaster, helper bags,NBS rear disk brakes.
-02 Suburban 4x4: stock
-CBR600F4i, CBR600RR, CBR1000RR, and standup skis
