Q & A

What's in the Box

When it comes to the cooling performance of these radiators, they are second to none. AFCO Aluminum radiators allow your car to remain at a constant temperature, which means that power delivery is more consistent. The uniformity of an all-aluminum construction radiator allows for the best pound for pound heat transfer characteristics.

  • 100% Aluminum construction (no epoxy)
  • Furnace brazed core
  • 2 rows of 1.00" tubes
  • Tanks are made of .080” 3003 aluminum for strength and durability
  • TIG welded by skilled craftsmen in the USA
  • Factory pressure-tested
  • Filler necks feature screw-in bleed – won't crack or leak with age
  • Side brackets are reverseable for mounting fore or aft of the core support

Instructions (PDF)

NOTE: Due to the modified nature of these vehicles, some radiators will require a minimum of drilling, etc. to mount.

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 supeiror design on the street. Shroud/Fan assembly sold separately.
