Cooling question for BBC

I currently have a 19x28 single pass aluminum radiator with a Walker electric fan/shroud in my Nova. This is a fresh motor and seems to run hotter than my 396 did. The 396 ran mostly around 190 and the 502 will run as hot at 205--both with short drives around town. My question-- is a dual pass radiator better at cooling than my single pass radiator? I can modify the radiator area and get a 19x31 in the car but then the shroud will not cover the entire cooling area on the radiator. Any ideas?
