Thanks mate. Yeah I know the XT6 is the Vortex, we only got the XT4 version. Any XT6's in Oz are known as a grey import or a personal import - not factory delivered here.
Does the inlet and outlet port angles become an issue with fitment or are they not like the stock L series lower radiator angle? I'm hoping they're both only gently angled up at the most like what I can see in your pic above of the upper inlet pipe. And it turns out there's one in stock in Oz - surprising what you can find if you ask!
Last question - have you fitted this radiator yet? Keen to know what sort of clearances you have between the engine and the radiator you have
That's insane building two engines! Clearly you're passionate about this build - or you're keeping "Bloody Murphy" and his law away! With that spare engine built on the shelf waiting to go you'll not have an issue with the one you're running!
I haven't tried to install it yet because its winter in Canada.. And Boy O Boy is it winter up here this year lol.... in the summer ill be installing the rad, i'm just comparing it to the GL rad for now..
but the inlet port has a slight angle very small not like the GL point up to the hood, ill take a picture of it flat on the floor.... but in the GL and XT6 the rads sit on a angle pointing back which will straighten out in the end..
I don't see any reason why it wont fit with the same Rad Fans.. my Fans are mounted on the steal bracket and don't sit close to the fins on the rad... but with a double core like this one they will sit perfect maybe 2mm away from the fins.
the rad is the same size as the GL just double core... the end tanks are the same size with out the large ports..
the spare motor I'm making is so I can have the car for sure in the summer if something goes wrong like last summer I wasted..
