  • 3 row performance radiator - will it fit?

    Hello All,
    It looks like i will be needing a new radiator.

    After looking around I found a 3 row performance radiator: KKS Motorsports Aluminum Radiator For 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII V8

    The price is right and the reviews seem good and the price is right.

    My question is will it fit? The original 1 row is 1 inch thick. This one is 2.25 inches.

    Has anyone tired a performance radiator this thick?

    Thanks

    i've got the 3 core griffin.
    it fits fine.
    i don't have the air injection stuff (96-98) anymore so i don't know for sure if it will clear that. but probably.

      3 row performance radiator - Fits OK!

      Just a quick update to let you all know that I have put in a 3 row performance radiator: KKS Motorsports Aluminum Radiator For 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII V8

      The fit was OK. I had to move an AC hose a bit.

      The biggest issue was that i needed longer bolts and shims to connect the fan shroud.

        That's really interesting. Not a problem I would have expected to have.

        Thanks for the update! Do check back in once you've driven it for a while and talk to us about performance, too.

          Since its winter, i do not expect to see much of a difference.
          The real test will be this summer...
