Cooling mods

My car just split its radiator at the lower mount of the fan. So obviously it needs to be replaced.

My question: is there a better rad I can bolt right in?
I thought about the 04' cobra rad but I need a trans cooling/heating section as I drive this in the winter too. Is the V8 rad any better/ does it fit?
Thanks in advance for the help all.

You bet, my cooling system seems to be taking a crap. Almost 115k miles though & that upper was original.

I don't know about a 97, but 91-93 the rad was the same for the 6 and 8. The only one that was different was for the supercharged engine. (Due to the inter-cooler.)

I've come into this world with nothing and still manage to have some of it left.

Anyone know if the 4.6 rads are the same situation?
