    I have been researching through a couple sites and have read mixed reviews about putting a 4th gen camaro radiator and fan assembly in a second gen. What all is needed for this swap? Also where does the steam line go to on the 4th gen rad?

    I put the 4th gen fans in but not the 4th gen radiator. The fans were an easy install no mods needed. Now if you currently have a the small radiator you will need to upgrade to the larger radiator and that will also requires enlarging the opening in the core support.

    It’s 2020...you can buy a “LS” style radiator that’s a direct bolt on for a 70-81. Steam line and the hose connection are in the correct place.
