I picked up a new 3 inch radiator and am going with electric fans most likely out of an Intrepid/ramcharger but I'm a lil curious if the Cutlass top plate will fit on a 3 inch radiator? The radiator is described as a direct bolt in just want to see if anyones run across this before before I buy the parts.

Here's a link to the radiator

I am not running an LS but I am running a griffin radiator and I also have the Cutlass top plate on mine and have no issues with the fit. You should be ok with it.

Almost Leo, couldn't work on it this weekend due to my left knee is about shot. I think it is either an ACL or maybe some kinda arthritis setting in the knee. Hurt like hell all weekend and seems like the only time it didn't hurt was when I was lying down and it had a slight bend in it (as long as it was straight). Weird as it doesn't hurt going up and down stairs. Need to check it out and see what's going on with it.

Sorry didn't mean to hijack LOL.
