Customer q:

Looking for a radiator for my dodge d-100 with auto trans that will be able to handle a 450hp engine. Also looking for a steering column for this 1978 dodge d-100.  I believe its 35" long from the base of the steering wheel to the spline shaft with a 2" column.  And tilt column shift. Could I off set that with the steering wheel? Does the steering column come in a chrome? If I were to convert my 408 stroker over to this new fi-tech system, would I want to put a msd distributor in also? Could you also give me the info for a complete fi-tech system including msd distributor?  The engine is 360 magnum turned into 408 stroker pushing 497hp. My current distributor has a vac advance. Would this still work? And with this fi-tech system, will I need the return tank? Thanks.

Hi there and thank you for choosing JEGS for your automotive needs. Here's a radiator.

I'm not seeing a direct fit steering column. Largest I can find is only 32".  Possible or with a spacer of such. Some adapters would get 2" to make it more normal.  Below is the 32" chrome.

And yes, with that conversion you would a msd distributer. Since you're aiming for 450, you'll also need the 600hp system with a inline pump.
