Summit Racing or Jeg's may have some stuff as well. Since my Nissens 3 core works for everything I do, I don't have any better ideas.

Go out to garage, get tape measure...do some math.

Why do you want a "racing" radiator?

Define "racing"?! Drag, endurance or what?

Depending on use, some might use the small radiator or a larger than stock.

Ditto on the Summit or Jegs....order a catalog or go on-line

If you get your stock recored that is the best solution. It is a 3 row copper radiator!

Not true. 3-row wasn't normally available as a stock unit on the 2/7/9's. Normally they were single alum or 2 row copper.

As for having it recored, good luck anymore. We're down to just 1 shop here in town that does it, used to have a dozen. Price for a recore is the same or more than a brand new one. Recoring the 3-row for my Dodge was going to run $500, bought my 4-row Modine/Proliance/Visteon for $389.

You might be right. The shop doing mine is using a 3 row core and charging $300. Not bad considering a new junky one is still $150 or more.
