when i went to the v-8 in my car i had a custom rad made in buffalo it wasnt any more than a normal rad. cause it was parts 8cyl tanks on a v-6 size core, point is it was stuff he normally used and was alot cheaper than aftermarket. whats different about tgp over like a regular gp?

It'* a smaller length wise because it had an intercooler sitting next to it, but much much thicker than a stock GP intercooler. .

Engine is fine. The turbo sucked up a LOT of coolant because the radiator blew right in front of the K&N on the turbo. Boosting 8psi, it just sucked that coolant right threw the air filter and straight into the motor. So the motor swallowed a lot of coolant, but it'* ok.

I found another radiator already. It'* in Indianapolis. I hope to pick it up on Wednesday.

Blew the radiator… strange, but good to hear it wasn't something worse.
