Re: big block in big truck

Good luck keeping it cool. There aint a radiator on earth that will keep that Monster from cooking itself.

Hope your not using it for work?

ive got a 79 F350 with a Mild 460 and it cooks on a hot day.

Its got a Tripple Flow 4 Row Radiator (Massive)
Performance Water pump
The heads are Tapped

And the bitch still cooks!!!!!!!

F#%king hate the thing.

Re: big block in big truck

Get your self a big aluminium radiator and you should not have heating problems

There is no substitute for cubic inches but my pursuit sure closes the gap




*UPDATE * Pursuit has just run 11.763 and 116.18 mph making it Australias Quickest and fastest unopened boss as well as Australias Quickest and fastest naturally aspirated Boss
