The CSF Radiator Challenge! CSF vs Masiv
During the summer CSF radiator launched a bold ad campaign with MotoIQ: the CSF Summer Challenge. CSF boldly challenged the entire radiator industry to s shootout to see who makes the most effective radiator with us conducting the test. CSF's only rule was that a radiator for the challenge had to be an off the shelf part built for a given car available to the general public, not a one off bespoke radiator designed just for the test.
Only one company rose to the challenge to take on CSF, Masiv. Masiv is a company that is well known in the industrial heat exchanger world and is now getting into the high performance automotive radiator business. Masiv has just released a heavy duty radiator for the Scion/Subaru FR-S/BRZ. CSF also had a radiator for the same cars and we happened to have several examples of the car around the palatial MotoIQ megashop available for testing
In order to stress out the cooling system we picked our Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S which happens to be supercharged and also equipped with a CSF radiator. The supercharger would greatly increase the overall thermal load on the cooling system and we figured someone who is a forced induction system owner woul be a prime candidate for an upgraded radiator.
