What's in the Box

Info

Speedway’s line of universal Chevy radiators makes it easy for budget-minded racers to get a professional-quality aluminum racing radiator. These high performance radiators feature furnace-brazed construction, two rows of large 1" aluminum tubes, billet filler necks and a maximum number of fins per inch for great heat transfer. They are not available with transmission coolers and they do not come with mounting brackets.

These Chevy-style radiators have driver’s side upper inlets, passenger side lower outlets, and can be ordered in a variety of custom widths.

  • All-aluminum, furnace-brazed construction
  • No cheap epoxy glue or crimped in gaskets
  • Maximum amount of fins per inch allows greater heat transfer
  • Billet filler necks
  • Available in 22", 24", 28", or 31" widths (measurements include tanks)

Learn more about how radiators work and selecting the proper radiator for your vehicle by reading our tech article, Radiator Cooling Performance.

Notes

  1. These aluminum radiators are built for racing applications and are configured for Chevy engines, meaning they have driver’s side upper and passenger side lower outlets. Lower hose neck is slightly angled.
  2. Radiator widths listed include the side tanks and are the outside to outside width.
  3. Our Techs recommend using a 32 lb. or less radiator cap and to check it regularly.

Excellent quality/Fast/Affordable...what everyone wants!

October 27, 2016
I got this for my 77 Silverado. Although I had to do a little retrofitting (which I expected)it worked out great! I wanted a higher capacity radiator and this is able to contain about a 1/3 more fluid than my stock radiator. My guage reads all the way to the left now...on the "C" and it doesn't move no matter how much driving I do. And yes the guage works. Before the conversion it was almost on the "H" Of course there were other factors that were causing overheating issues. But truthfully, I don't think that if I put everything back together with new stock parts that it would run this cool. My whole coolant system is brand new now. I feel confident that I won't have to worry about for many years. Eliminating potential headaches that's what everyone wants!
Pros:
  • Everything
Cons:
  • None
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dimensions of overflow? Length and diameter

Dimensions of overflow? Length and diameter

Answers

January 29, 2015
EricM
The overflow connection is 1/8" NPT. A straight hose barb is included so that you can connect a 1/4" hose. This is just a short hose barb (approximately 1 1/2" long) and will need to have a hose connected to it. The length you make that hose is not critical. Whatever length it takes to get to your overflow tank or directed towards the ground is fine.

Thickness and material Do you happen to know what aluminum alloy is used to build this radiator? Also, do you know the ID of the inlet and outlet holes? I'm assuming that the 1-3/4" and 1-1/2" is the OD. Thank you!

Sorry the aluminum alloy used on this radiator is not specified. The inlet and outlet sizes are OD measurements. The ID of the inlet and outlet will be 1/8" smaller than the OD.

can one be specially made for a 66 nova with big block 582 chev conversion might be switching to an automatic turbo 400 trans soon so would you suggest an independent trans cooler if I do switch from standard 4 speed trans or wait and get one made with trans cooler bottom incorporated into radiator at that time

We offer an Afco radiator that is a bolt in for your 66 Nova which is part number 10680287. It is available with or without a transmission cooler. If you plan to install an automatic in the future I would suggest getting a radiator with a transmission cooler. It can be plugged off while you are still using the manual transmission.

The Speedway universal radiator is 19" tall and offered in several widths. With the proper fan/shroud it will cool your chevelle just fine. This radiator does not have a drain.
