Default Where to find radiator cores?.....

Just looking for a source for radiator cores. I want to build a smaller race style radiator for my car. Its looks like most guys building them are using smaller bar & plate intercooler cores. I know Bell Intercoolers has a whole bunch of sizes to choose from. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Spike radiators, we do a lot of business with them.
Pacific radiators is another one.
Sometimes you can get a core from Ron Davis.

And them of course all the intercooler core suppliers if you go that route.

As far as intercooler cores what cores is it that most are using?
Bell intercooler cores are the only real ones I can find in say 10x10x3 core size
Anyone know of any others ?

Bell and Garrett are really the only options.


Buying anything from Vibrant is like buying anything off of ebay, but then throwing 20-40 extra dollars in the garbage.
