Not hard. Technicalities depending. Do you have emissions, etc?gman said:How hard is this on a gen 2?
I noticed you removed the front clip from the van.
Do you have to weld that back on?
Short answer: Physical fitment is pretty easy.
The radiator crossmember you are referring to is bolted on 85-94. 95+ is a single piece/welded attachment. I drilled holes before I cut that crossmember then cut it. This way I had bracket holes to line it back up. I didn't cut it wide enough to clear the headers I had on my v8 (I am using the same as MMusicMan). I opted for the adapters rather than drill holes to relocate the motor mounts.
You can see how wide I cut mine in this pic. Ignore the red circle. The stock manifolds on the v6 cleared fine through that opening.
Are you talking about the thicker 1" radiator? or an aftermarket one?elstoner420 said:Does anyone have a part # for a radiator, been a real pain to find the HD for the 89.
