Ben,
Do you have a thermostat? What temp, 180°? There's a wall of tables to adjust so the C7 will accept 180-190° as operating temp!!

What I wouldn't give to have my radiator back right, how much thicker is the new radiator & what about the hood duct are you having trim it?

We're making a lower t stat right now as well. I've seen the tables and am very curious to get this in and begin testing before lowering the t stat operating temps significantly.

What do you mean by "having your radiator back right?" This unit is 2.25" core and nearly 26" wide

rectangular, made of aluminum, has some ports on it, holds coolant... anything else? lol
Ok, that's a shit reply....

Specs as in cooling area over stock? Is it direct bolt in replacement and stock dimension? What is the expected max hp with this unit?

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Maybe I'm slow, maybe I'm not. What problem does the new radiator fix? Same for a lower temp thermostat?

New radiator is for higher hp cars. The added hp creates more heat and a more efficient radiator helps keep heat more manageable.

I guess I missed the test data showing how much more efficient the new radiator is compared to a stock one.:rolleyes:
