      I have Griffin rads in my cuda and 03 Ram with 408/Vortech supercharger.

      There has been recent postings in Facebook commenting between Griffin and Champion rads. The Champions are getting a few negative comments. Mostly about welds, made in China and Champion uses 5/8" tubing rather than 1.25" tubing of the Griffin.

      I've never ran Champion but can say the Griffins work very well.

      I am using the 22" "OER" Desert Cool from Classic Ind. and have not had any problems with it and my engine is a modified 360 with 435 hp and a 195 thermostat.

          I'm running the Champion 3 core with a 16" Puller electric fan. Cools my 416 with a good size Cam Motion solid roller. Does a great job. I believe it is a 526 part number
