Hey, I was just wondering if it'd be easy/possible or even worth it to try to fit a nice big 3 core radiator from something like an XE V8 to an E series V8? The hoses appear as though they'd come out in about the right spot, there'd still be plenty of room for the fans, and you could do away with the header tank, I am just thinking about this because from what I can tell, it'd neaten up the engine bay, cool the engine better, and have less hoses and bits and peices to go wrong and be all around better. Why not?

I suppose it's possible to do but, it won't cool the engine better. I wouldn't do it.

At the moment I just have an aluminium 6 cylinder radiator on my V8. I was just thinking that an XE one would have to be more efficient than that. What is your thoughts? It's not overheating, but then again, there hasnt been any hot weather since I did it.

Simple buy a Heavy Duty unit from Adrad or Natrad to suit E series and be done with it...
