I just wanted to reach out to the dodge community so there's a post somewhere for anyone who comes looking in the future. I had a crack in the radiator on my srt8 charger 6.1l the other day. Finding a radiator was a nightmare because nearly every parts website I checked listed at least 4 different radiators with different combos if inlet and outlet sizes and they were all listed as being direct fit compatible with the "W" VIN code motors. This is completely false! The one we need for the 6.1l V8s has an inlet size of 1&3/4" and outlet is 1&5/8". It is known as the severe duty cooling 2 radiators. It has a deeper core than the 3 other radiators. The only ones I've seen that sell the right one is MOPAR, Spectra, Murray.
I felt like I needed to say something because it took me a few hours to find the correct information. We even had the parts manager I knew at the dealership confused. FYI, if you need this radiator, the dealership price for me was $195. Which was $100 cheaper than the only other one in town I could find at Napa.
If there's a better community to post this in, please let me know.
