Anyone have any suggestions on what vendors I should buy from or not buy from? An all aluminum radiator would be nice, but I'm not thinking it's worth all $500 to me at this juncture.

Knowing what your car is would be nice, but if it is a LT1, the parts ladi..... $150 for new stock Delphi is a no brainer.

I was asked for the thickness of the radiator's core...hellifIknow.

Apparently there are two Delphi radiators that should fit, both have the internal radiator and oil coolers. One is 24mm thick, the other is 36mm...part numbers RA1105 and RA1124 respectively. I'm thinking RA1124 since I can actually find that one in a few places.

A local shop will sell me an aluminum core/plastic tank one for $134.00 with a lifetime warranty. May not be a bad way to go, they also stated they'd R&R it for just under $70; which is relatively cheap, though I will likely do it myself anyway since I have some other things I'd like to address while it's out.

Not that anyone necessarily cares, but for closure's sake; the Delphi RA1105 radiator is discontinued, but the RA1124 is a perfect fit...Needles' coolant leaks are fixt.

That is all.
