Info

With AFCO Direct Fit aluminum radiators, you can use the same tools to install your new radiator as you did to remove the old one. They are 100% TIG welded, 100% pressure tested and use no epoxy or sealers. These radiators were designed for the rigors of racing, but we added the mounts to allow you to use their superior design on the street.  Be sure to check the Application tab for vehicle fitment!
