For those of you that have done the V8 conversion on an 80 series, I was wondering if any of you had to change the radiator or if the stock one is good enough for the V8. My current radiator has a crack in it and I am looking for a new one. I have the 3FE motor right now but I am looking to do the conversion to the V8 hopefully in a year or so and I would hate to spend the cash for a stock radiator now and then have to buy a different one for the V8 when I am ready for the conversion. I would like to buy one now that would work for both the 3FE and a V8 in the future. I was looking at the Brass Aftermarket radiator from Specter because I really do not want a stock plastic radiator. If any one has used that radiator from Specter in front of a V8, any information on it would be great.
