Radiator for gm engine swaps.

So this is an odd thing to be picky about. But I just dont like how those shiny aluminum radiators look in gm engine swaps.

I'm specifically gearing up to go with a gen 3 and all the compatible radiators I am finding are those square silver aluminum aftermarket types.

I,just,want a nice factory looking radiator for my swap. I want to open the hood and make people second guess whether that engine belongs there or not.

Any one have a part number for something like that ?

Spray paint it black or build custom hoses with aluminum tubes & the Summit Racing catalog of bends, re-purposed OEM hoses & some ingenuity.

I believe BJ's offroad sells one for the swap that fits the shell. I just used my original and had a radiator shop move the lower hose flange over to the pass. side.
