you probably can.
I have been emailing back and forth with the guy from champion. He has a monza radiator prototype with a straight upper neck that he needs someone to verify fitment. If you are interested let me know and I will send you his info.

Any reason you are not using a stock radiator like you did in your earlier ls conversion?

Yes, you can buy direct from griffin. Talk to Michele Morgan, she will be able to get you all the info that you need . Around 600.00 to 800.00.

He said he is eventually. I am guessing the radiator he was sent was a straight neck version. He was also confused as to what is what with regard to monza radiators - you have straight neck, curve neck, 2core/3 core, narrow width 4cyl cores, wider v6,v8 cores. Then there also the shorter core radiators which came in the vega based monza s.

I suppose that is the problem with one chassis that had so many engine combinations and minor changes throughout the years. Four-cylinder radiators are still available, I would think he would want to focus on the V8 and V6 versions first and then go from there. Maybe you can narrow it down to just a couple versions that will fit various configurations. As far as I know all the V-8's came with power steering that would require the curved in the neck, not sure about the V-6's as far as I know all the V-8's came with power steering that would require the curved in the neck, not sure about the V-6. A 2 Row radiator with 1 inch tubes should fit both the early and later grill designs, anything thicker probably won't fit 75 to 77
