Thinking about putting a new radiator in my wagon. It has a fresh 383. What brand does everyone like these days? Thanks!

I think a lot of people are running Champion radiators, affordable, decent build quality, all aluminum construction and your choice of 2,3 or 4 rows plus they fit without modifications in your factory shroud.
Here is the 3 row I installed in my Regal project.

yeah thats sweet it should keep it cold with no problem!
The Intrepid fans cool the 565 with a large Griffen radiator, the Regal is getting a 355 so it's a non issue for that one.

WHERE DID YOU GET THE RADIATOR BRACKETS TO HOLD IT IN PLACE?

I made them out of aluminum and then polished them like I did with the radiator before I installed it.
