This radiator was initially designed as a solution to the clearance issues of larger engine swaps, to produce a radiator that looks great and functions better, and to give the engine bay a less cluttered look. Putting all of this into 1 was the challenge. This radiator is smaller in height and width, but since its a dual pass design it cools just as well as a factory sized radiator.
What's dual pass design? This simply means the coolant passes through TWO times instead of ONE. Which, even more simply put means TWICE the cooling and half the size. Both inlets are on the same side of the radiator and a plate is welded inside between the two inlets. The radiator has two L brackets on each side that you bolt to your core support. This radiator doesn’t use any of the OEM radiator mounting points, and it’s easier to install and un-install.
The next step is fill point and hoses. Hoses first. For hoses you have the option of -16AN or OEM style outlets. If you choose -16AN, we can provide you with the hose and fittings. We can even assemble it for you to your specs. And if you need assistance figuring out how to set it up, we’re just an email and/or a phone call away. If you go with OEM style hoses sometimes the stock upper or lower hose will work, usually not both. For OE style outlets we do not make hose kits. Depending on your setup one or both OEM hoses may work, if not its best to take some measurements once the radiator is mounted and head to the auto parts store to find a matching hose.
For the fill point. Since the top of our radiator sits about 8" to 12" lower than the OEM, we have to make a new fill point. The first step is getting an inline filler neck, listed below are some the links to our inline filler necks. The way you setup the filler neck could make your hose selection easier. We can help you with this too, we’re full of ideas.
