thanks guys, thats good news. Does anyone know if there was a bigger radiator optional in these models, such as when a big tow pack was fitted, or for people living in the tropics (like 20 years ago when it was optional?)

they are all the same from the factory you might be able to get a custom one made??
if the car is a xr or police pack or was fitted with a hd tow pack
there should be trans cooler infront of the radiator but that is for the transmission ...

ford sell three different radiators for the el's,
el 6 $220
el 8 $280
el high output v8, el gt, fbt. $320

they were the prices i got abt 6 months back.

the genuine 6 and 8 radiators will bolt up in either car but the 8 is a thicker radiator.

the aftermarket ones are all the same for 6 and 8 and auto/manual, just don't use the auto cooler in manual, as far as i know.

beleive it or not they have different prices but they have the same part number!
but last year i was quoted $700 for the v8 radiator and $400 for the 6 from ford..my mate who works in spare parts showed me the part number and it was the same
the price depended on the car type!
i know the std v8 and 6 are the same radiator but im not sure about the gt one??

i got a aftermarket one for $200 and never looked back...
