Aluminum Radiator Install—Will I Need New Shroud?

Hi guys,

So my BB6 is coming along nicely since picking her up a couple of weeks ago (pics & mod list otw once I finish installing all the gizmos and whatnot from Amazon & eBay).

I bought a project a guy had to abandon, so he threw in some parts with the deal. One is this aluminum radiator.

The OEM radiator is working fine but is beat up, so I'm thinking I drop this in when I have a chance. Anyone know if these are compatible with the OEM shroud, or do they require a custom size shroud? Manufacturer's site says it's a direct bolt-on, but the guy I bought from mentioned needing a new shroud and that's why he didn't install.

I'd like an upgraded one eventually, but it's not a priority if not needed to install the radiator. Thanks for the help!

It looks like in that link there are posts at the top and bottom of the rad for the stock fans to bolt up to. It'd be easy enough to take the fans out and see if they bolt up before swapping the rads over.

Yeah if I can get them off without having to remove the radiator, that would be great. I'll give that a go. Thanks for the pointer.
