i would say goon that the N/A Radiator would be fine. Change the Thermostat to a new one.
I would recommend possibly upgrading it to a Vl V8 Radiator for extra cooling. or go further and get a Alloy high performace type
Your choice and others peoples recommendations would be the key :p
Goodluck

It'd be fine, but you can get a three core or whatever they are in non alloy for 400 dollars from most radiator places.

Alloy would be a waste of money unless you get it insanely cheap and if you're going to be needing it.

Well atm i got a source for 300 for both 6 and v8 n/a raditors and the alloy is only another 30 bucks for turbo... its a hard choice between the v8 and the alloy.

If it's only another 30 bucks go for it.
