Radiator Swap list

So I'm swapping the 3.8 for a 4.6 SOHC and have everything except the 4.6L radiator and supporting parts. My questions are what all do I need. After looking on Tousley Ford for a while it gets confusing because there are a lot of diagrams with a lot of parts. I know I need the following, but what else? Also can I reuse my stock Fan with shroud and motor? The parts are different according to websites so I'm assuming one is a push and the other is pull and/or there is some sort of compensation due to the GT's expansion tank. Also Worth it to get aftermarket Radiator or is stock just fine? I'm thinking stock should work just fine. Oh the motor I have has water pump and all accessories so I don't think I will need a thermostat.


1. Radiator
2. Upper and Lower Hoses
3. Expansion Tank & Cap
4. Fan/Shroud/Motor??? not sure if needed.

Thanks.

Re: Radiator Swap list

So bought all I need for just under $400 including a Mishimuto radiator which got great reviews on AM, however had to buy through ebay since they were out of them, all the accessories from Tousley (upper/lower hoses, expansion tank supports, tank cap), and the fan assembly through CJ pony parts. All i need now is expansion tank itself which currently bidding on one for $1.
