I like to use the mechanical system from the vehicle that's supplying the motor. Get the motor/trans in place, then adapt all the cooling system from the Mopar. You may have to do some cutting on the core support to adapt the radiator, maybe not. Look at the Mopar before you pull the motor and measure and record the distance from the fan to the core so you can position the radiator exactly the same distance from the fan and you will have everything in place, including the shroud. The motor will cool exactly like it did when it was in the Mopar sheetmetal. Chrysler Corp paid its engineers top dollar to design and build a cooling system for that 383 that would do the job under many varying conditions. Take advantage of the free engineering. That's my best advice.
