Radiator for 305 to 350 swap

Has anyone tried this Entropy radiator that costs about 780? Curious if its worth at all on my 91 z28 i am planning to swap a 350 into (that Dyno Don rebuilt from another car,thanks Don) the car. Or is there any other better quality radiator for my daily driver that i want to keep close to stock but upgrade its aging parts with better stuff.
I've ready abour the Champion 2 and 3 core but mixed reviews. Ran into the Entropy cooling Radiator brand, wondering if the price is justified ? Any other suggestions would be great as well.

The stock radiator is really good when well maintained. I would go for that unless you are building something really impressive

I'm using an OE replacement from O'Reilly's with my 350/330 HO deluxe. Zero issues.
