When working on an engine swap, you can run into to all kinds of problems. Whether it’s wiring, fuel injection, exhaust routing, or engine mounting, most of these obstacles can be fixed pretty easily. One thing that is not so easy to handle is a lack of engine compartment room, especially when you need to get a radiator and fan assembly mounted to the core support.
Proform has just released a new product that might aid you when you are trying to fit a radiator and fan in a super tight space. The patented new Slim-Fit Integrated Radiator is perfect for this situation. This radiator is the thinnest in its class and includes the radiator, fan, and shroud. According to Ryan Salata, Marketing Director of Proform Parts, “The Slim-Fit Integrated Radiator system is application specific and will have fourteen part numbers that will be available in March of 2019.”
What is unique about this system is the fan motor is actually flipped and bolts to a section of the radiator instead of the traditional method of being on the back of the fan. This in return saves inches—upto 40% of important real estate whereas a traditional radiator and fan might not fit. All of the applications are a direct fit and offer tig welded aluminum construction, clean natural finish, dual one-inch tube core, and comes preassembled.
Every Proform Slim-Fit Integrated Radiator includes an aluminum shroud, electric fan with an integrated adjustable thermostat, wiring harness and a radiator cap. For more information check out proformparts.com.
