    Hi
    The more radical the engine the better radiator required .
    There is the ebay units 4 core alloy [tube width ?] HQ-Hz downflow

    All the way up to PWR $1250 oversize high performance core A/T cooler downflow 80mm core HQ-Z

    Fans electric
    SPAL twin 11 inch 2500cfm
    Davies Craig twin 14inch 3000cfm
    Maradyne
    Deralle

    Caution bigger fans require a lot of amperage . THE BIG Deralles flow 4000 cfm but use almost 50amps

    standard tube width can vary 1/2 , 9/16 , 5/8 inch
    High performance tubes 1 , 1 1/4 , 1 1/2 inch

    Most heavy duty cores use 2 x 1 1/4 tubes = 2.5 inches about 63 mm TUBE WIDTH plus fins is typical of a total thickness of approx. 80mm
    Most cheaper alloy rads have a core thickness of 55mm approx.

    U need to add the the tube sizes !!
    U need to beaware of fin and tube pitch also ..
