So whats the cooler that sits in front of the radiator? I'm guessing its for the a/c. BUT I have no a/c and its just sitting there...no lines and its not even bolted in!!

That's the condenser for the AC. My friend took his out when he changed his distributor to get a bit of weight off. Not needed unless you use your AC.

Make sure the radiator edges are still sealed to the chassis sheet metal, so no air can leak around the edges of the radiator, and reduce coooling efficiency.
