    What would be the best way to mount this? I'm going to be running a Griffin LS swap rad/fan setup as well. I was thinking I could remove the hood latch assembly and sticking it there and using hood pins.

    Also, any good spots for an external trans cooler?

    My car is a 70 don't know if they are different or not.
    I have the griffin radiator and have managed to make both a vintage ac condenser and a intercooler work. I had to do some cutting on the core support where the ac hoses connect to the condenser.
    I also had to modify the hood latch release arm and lower mount. I also had to cut some from the lower valance supports. My intercooler radiator is 16"x22"x1" the same size as the condenser. I will move my battery to the trunk and mount my water tank and water pump there
    I made all of this and mounted it up and then removed the intercooler because I wanted to drive and break in my new crate engine before installing the supercharger.
    What kind of supercharger and intercooler are you using? I bought used kit from a 2013 camaro. I see some other kits use a smaller but thicker radiator and may end up going this way if I run into cooling problems.

    Maybe mount it just below the radiator ? But would have to have pictures to be sure.
