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.

Just what the doctor ordered!

May 23, 2016
Replacing the beat up radiator in my AMC Spirit race car. Car has a small block Chevy so this radiator did the trick. You have to make your brackets as it is a universal fit but not a problem. Looks great and keeps it cool! Good price too!
Pros:
  • Good Quality Good Price
Cons:
  • None
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good bang for the buck.

Fit great but...

April 19, 2016
The thing fit great but I wish the lower hose outlet came out of the radiator straight. Thing points inward and up. So I have to cut the outlet off and weld it straight to use the thing.

  • Looks Great

Great For A Universal

April 19, 2016
I used the shroud to install two 10" electric fans. It worked out great for those. I had originally planed on using two 12's, but there isn't enough room given the shroud's taper. I wasn't too comfortable mounting this directly to my 31" Speedway radiator, as there's a bit of overlap with the core, so I added some foam tape to the shroud's lip to isolate vibration. These parts do work well together, but they don't mate perfectly. All in all, I'm very happy with the way this part worked out.
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.
