    Hi

    I searched through the various threads for an answer to my question. Great information on her for the slant 6 fans!
    The 69 Dart that I purchased has many performance upgrades to the engine, intake, carb etc. But it still has the stock radiator. What to upgrade to an aluminum for better cooling. Have looked at Be Cool radiators but they state you need to relocate the battery. I am looking for a direct fit replacement for my 69 Dart. Does any know of any good options? Brand and model number would be appreciated. Thanks

    Here ya go. This is what I did for my 66 Valiant. It works so well, the needle never moves off the lower mark after the thermostat opens no matter how hard I drive the car or how hot it is outside. It was very close to a direct fit. I did have to relocate a couple of the mounting holes, but it fits in the stock space just fine. I haven't compared a 69 radiator to a 66, but I suspect it would be similar.
