View Full Version : Better Radiator? What the heck????

Ok.... I just parted out my 97 GrandAm SE that I used to have. I noticed that when I removed the radiator, the radiator was thin as hell... I'd swear that it was a single core radiator. Can anyone tell me why this is?

Only reason I care still, is because I bought another 97 GrandAm... but a GT this time. Same 4 cyl / auto combination (it's my daily driver).

I hate it when I'm sitting at a drive-thru and it gets hot. The needle gets all the way to the 3/4 mark. It's never overheated, but it still bugs me.

When I compare it to my Fiero, the Fiero's radiator with the 2.5 4 cyl or the 2.8 V6/60 has like a 3-core radiator. I know I could get a cool temperature fan switch, but it seems to me a larger radiator would be a better option. Does anyone know of a simple drop-in replacement radiator for the 96-98 GrandAm with the TwinCam?

Thanks! :nono:
