Can anyone tell me the best way to increase my radiator capeability.
ie recore to bigger core/new bigger radiator or radiator from another model etc.
I have a EA sedan 1990 with electric fans from ef/el

Smoke, I want to tow a caravan and know that these little beautys get hot quick, so I thought a better radiator would help me keep ahead of the ball game.

Put in a big auto cooler and oil cooler.

Auto cooler will have biggest potential effect.

Put it on the drivers side for best effect.

for falcon used for towing,
get big auto cooler, something like davies craig 678.

and just a recore of your old radiator along with a good flush of block and complete the job with new hoses. use a ford thermostat, they stay open if they fail, won't cook the engine.

the recore of radiator will cost arnd $100, new radiator can be had for $160odd.
