These are modeled from the factory radiator and use all factory mounts and fittings. Doing a Group Buy on these... $675 shipped for the first 10 and then they'll go for $749 plus shipping. Here are some pics of the first unit out of the box. It's heading to FL tomorrow so there are 9 left.

Yes lines route in and out driver side like stock and then would go to the factory cooler or you could upgrade to a better aftermarket cooler.

How soon would these ship?

And also if we will be running the Track Attack will we need upgraded fans?

I have 3 more radiators on order and the cores should be done tomorrow and assembled next week. These got a slow start, but we're about ready for full ramp up production on them and the revised version will fit with the Track Attack!

Dewitt's makes my radiators and John text me a picture today that says a lot!!!

"Is this what your rig looks like? Dropping off the racing teams radiators today."

two words... bad... ass...

Review from a flyingv in the Cadillac Challenge

"Between the radiator, my air dam, and the block off panels in the lower grill, I saw a max coolant temp of 213 degrees, averaging about 205 with ambient temp at 100 deg track temp 120+ (amazing in my opinion!) It also keep oil temps below 270 which is pretty good considering the day. IAT1's were good considering track temp with my revised intake."

Have a few more being made now, about 2 weeks lead time. Let me know!

I still have 5 of these spots open guys! :) The ECT's have been reported lower esp by the guys running track days and this also keeps the trans fluid cooler which means longer life because the trans lines passing through a radiator that's seeing 195° isn't helping when you're trying to keep the trans fluid under 180°

Any IAT1 coolers?

Ok, free bump. I'm going to watch my temps this week as it's supposed to warm up late in the week, but not much compared to the rest of the country.

Will this *keep up* with a colder thermostat. Stock, a 165 thermostat can only manage about 190-200 at steady cruise(65 mph in hot weather). So will this radiator run 165/175 ish( not that you would want to run that cool) if a 165 thermostat is used? Never plan to road race my car. Looks nice!

During normal driving with ambient under 85 degrees, I see coolant temps around 170-175 with a 160 degree thermostat.

wow, never read of anyone maintaining that temp. 190 is as cool as mine will run. Any other cooling mods?
Ben's radiator, 160 degree stat, that's it. 635 RWHP

Ahhhh, I though you had a stock radiator with those temps. That's nice!! Plus the transmission is cooler as well. Big plus!
