Ever heard of a thermostat bypass and heatsink?

This is true you need to be careful about not putting a too big a radiator on...

a bypass would be unnecessary. The standard thermostat would bring it up to temperature fast enough. I know it's a big unit but I don't think the system volume would have changed enough to have to worry about that.

I have a radiator literally half the size of this in one of my utes with an A12 with a perfectly functioning thermostat and at this time of year it takes 10km at highway speed or longer at 60-80km/hr for it to reach operating temp. In cold climates ie snow trucks often use blinds to semi cover the radiator so engines don't run too cold

Yeah it looks ok, you may find youll have to run a 88 degree thermostat instead of the standard 82 degree opening temp

Thats way too big! It'll take 15km for it to get to operating temp.

I have no doubt there will be any issues with keeping it cool with that bad boy in there but I assure you it will work 50% better if you add some shrouding to stop the air getting around the core.
