Griffin radiator worth it with stock motor?

Ok guys, need your opinions. I think my radiator is starting to leak. I can get a replacement for $150. My question is this: Is the Griffin high capacity radiator I see from Bill Hull (supercoupe performance) worth the upgrade (300% the price of the stock replacement) with a bone stock motor? I know this will be OVERKILL but in my opinion engine cooling isn't a place to skimp. If I have to replace it then, you guys think it is worth the premium? Or is there a better factory replacement out there that isn't as expensive but is a nice improvement?

i'd say of course its worth it if you have the cash. keeping your engine cool is never a bad idea.

i do believe their isn't a trans cooler in that griffon though. so you'll need a external one. someone will have to confirm that though.

otherwise theirs always the cobra rad, that definitely doesn't have the trans cooler

Better than stock is the 03 Cobra radiator..

Only downside is..You have to run a seperate transmission cooler...Which actually isn't a bad idea at all..

Here's a couple links for you:

03 Cobra Radiator

Hayden 679 Transmission Cooler

I've heard good things about the Hayden 679..Maybe someone else running one will chime in..

IMO..That would be a good budget upgrade..

I would not waste the money on the Griffin rad, even for a modified car let alone a stock one. If you want an upgrade, either the Cobra rad, as was mentioned, or the Summit Racing brand universal radiators perform quite well for about 1/3rd the price, and are all aluminum construction, but they require some custom work to mount them in the car.

I wouldn't use the Hayden 679 cooler as the sole transmission cooler, I don't feel it's big enough for that kind of use. The only reason I use it is that I still utilize the transmission cooler in the radiator. The 679 is an auxiliary cooler. All I did was replace my radiator with another stock replacement, I think it's a Vista-Pro or something like that. It's been working for me just fine, even when driving like a bat outta hell on a 100+ degree summer day.

The bad part about the internal trans cooler is the way it's made. The plates will clog and also are known to crack. I have sold countless numbers of Ford and GM rads, tanks, cores, and coolers when I worked for a distributor in Nashville. I also used to build custom Plastic/Alum and all Alum rads when I worked there. I still may be able to buy from there if anyone is interested. Also if I remember correctly the Griffin rads use epoxy to seal the tubes at the header plates instead to tig welding them.

Well, my stock radiator went over 120,000 miles of hard use with no issues in regards to the trans cooler. Only reason I replaced it was that the passenger side side tank was starting to seep coolant a little. Just keep good coolant and clean trans fluid in the system and it'll last.

I have gotten over 185 with the Super Cooler and Cobra Radiator. Always under 190. I find the faster you go and the longer you drive the hotter it gets.

Driving 80 mph for more than 3 hours it gets the hottest. I don't usually travel faster than 80. More than 3 hours does not make it any hotter.

Probably also a factor the Dirty Dog converter. I would not use a smaller cooler standalone.

That is a good price on the Cobra Radiator Rayo posted. I heard dealers a getting $500 now.

Ok, so from the sounds of it I can go with either the Griffin offering far superior cooling to the engine, or for about $50-75 less go with the Cobra radiator (offering superior to stock engine cooling) and the large trans cooler which would then offer far superior trans cooling over stock, also. I think option 2 is sounding the better way to go.....

Just to be a troll, I'm putting a VW VR6 Radiator in mine... For more space.

4 Years of street racing with a stock radiator, no problems. Seeing if I can get away with smaller, plus an external trans cooler. The amount of room I'll get back is astounding.

I'm putting a mishimoto cobra radiator in my pi swap car; it's freaking huge, the drain plug is in a bad spot, but it's three rows, all aluminum, and has a lifetime warranty.

I think spattered killed one; IDK if they hassled him or not. (I'm sure he'll share when he sees this. )

Curios what you need the space for?

The drain plug is in a bad spot. There is the option to cut out the metal surrounding,
but for what? When it is time to change the fluid, all has to go anyway, so just disconnect the lower Rad. hose. I'm not sure about the mishimoto, just guessing its the same than the Fluo..... I had to grind some of the K-Member to clear the lower inlet better. But that's just me. A lower (2000 GT) rad-hose may be your fiend doing the install. Just saying.

good luck with the shttymoto.

On my brothers car, we went through 3 of them in 2 months.
1st leaked, called em to warranty, they said no prob. keep the old one, and we will send out a new.

2nd leaked, same thing as first, leaked, keep it, sending a new one.

3rd leaked....we said fugg it, got the last repaired at a local place, no leaks.

good luck, hope it doesnt leak....at least they warranty it.

I already modified all the spots you mention, except for the crossmember; a triangle shaped cut in the front support fixed the drain plug clearance issue.

I'm with you on the hoses; you can forward and backflush by opening the right spots.

The gt hose is supposed to fit and has the correct sized ends; but its reservoir tube is about 2-3" shorter, hanging beside the spare stock one on my garage wall... (I have 3 of these, spares are a necessity, lol.)

I'd be willing to bet if I fail the radiator, it will be the day I scrape a sidewalk pulling in too far, lol.

Really? Why do you think the 679 isn't enough? Alan says it can be used stand alone.

By the way, I bought the big Griffin radiator this winter. I am hoping to get it installed very soon.

I've been running a 679 with my Cobra rad for a year in a half now and it did just fine keeping my trans cool during last summers month of 100* temps. Much better than just the stock cooler did.

Thanks Matt for the reassurance. I thought I had a good setup planned with the Griffin and Hayden. The Hayden is used a lot on trucks that toe trailers and such. I figured it would be more efficient to just cut out the radiator all together.

For the love of the bird I just bought the stock lower and merged it with the GT.
