heatercores are preferred over radiators because they are better at cooling...the 1977 bonneville (part number 2-302) heatercore is preferred...

theres a place which gives a couple different methods of modding your own, but they are using a 1986 chevette core, but of course the methods still apply...make sure you get the copper heatercores as there of course are brass as well
