This Direct Fit aluminum radiator features an optional built-in (EOC) engine oil cooler. Facilitates optimal engine temperatures for maximum performance. Driver's side seven-plate cooler features large 3/4-16 O-ring ports. Use Zip kit # RA-184 (engine adapter & hose kit) to complete installation.
Direct Fit radiators are designed to bolt right in - no ifs, ands or buts. Every Direct Fit radiator is made in the USA and begins life as a double row core furnace brazed for strength and accuracy. Press formed end tanks are meticulously TIG welded by real craftsman to ensure leak-free performance and knockout looks. The entire radiator is epoxy free. This design eliminates failures due to cracked plastic end tanks and/or gasket leaks and improves horsepower through better cooling efficiencies.
Dewitts Direct Fit aluminum radiators are warrantied to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as you own the Corvette in which it was originally installed. This warranty is extended only to the first retail purchaser of any such radiator. Proof of purchase must be provided in the way of a sale receipt from DRI or an authorized dealer. If the radiator is used in any racing application this warranty is considered null and void.
Radiators used without an adequate proportion of premium quality antifreeze coolant and distilled water are not covered by this warranty. DRI radiators require a correct proportion of quality coolant, which contains aluminum corrosion inhibitors in the formula and distilled water. All Corvette cooling systems must include a radiator pressure cap with the proper pressure rating. Distilled water and premium antifreeze must be used with all Corvette aluminum radiators!
