Our cooling system was in need of an upgrade anyway due to the aging hoses with coolant caking on the ends and the faint whiff of coolant after the car was shutoff. Most of the time we justify upgrades due to potential track use but being in Phoenix, surface temperatures on the freeway can easily exceed 130 degrees in the summer so the environment is about as extreme as it gets. We contacted CSF who makes a radiator specifically for our application with the automatic transmission cooler integrated in the radiator. As an added bonus they also include a new condenser for the A/C system but it means we have to discharge our A/C to install the new condenser.
CSF uses a specially engineered B-tube fin design in their radiators for strength and increased cooling efficiency. They are 15% more effective than a traditional oval shaped tube helping them exchange heat more efficiently. Fin specifications are designed for each application and wind-tunnel tested in the CSF lab. Their radiators are also individually leak tested, vibration tested, thermal cycle and burst pressure tested.
