These LS conversion radiators are built with the correct inlet and outlet required for the engine swap. They are 100% TIG welded, 100% pressure tested and use no epoxy or sealers. These double pass radiators were designed for the rigors of racing, but we added the mounts to allow their superior design on the street. After all, there are more important things to be doing than installing your radiator - like enjoying your car on the road!

Second generation Firebirds & Trans Ams hit the streets in 1970 with big cubic inch, high-horsepower engines that often struggled to keep their cool in the hot summer months. To make matters worse, most of these cars were modified for even more horsepower and performance before their paint was even dry, creating challenges for the enthusiast. AFCO Direct-Fit radiators are designed to handle these high-horsepower engines with a 20% increase in cooling over the stock four-row radiators. These units re also designed to work with or without air conditioning, so you can keep your cool behind the wheel.

  • Built-in mounting brackets w/ pre-drilled holes
  • Factory fan shroud provisions
  • Inlets and outlets are factory-style and in stock locations
  • Billet filler neck offers strength and higher quality appearance over stamped
  • Inlets and outlets are positioned correctly for ease of flow
  • 100% aluminum construction (no epoxy)
