C&R Racing GT500 High Capacity Performance Radiators deliver maximum cooling. Made in the US by C&R Racing and available through Lethal Performance. Perfect for road racers and street/strip applications. Beautiful Aluminum finish, made to the highest tolerances and super light weight. All the perfomance, none of the fat.
On track testing of the stock unit in extreme conditions while running a 3.4L Whipple Supercharger with 17 lbs of boost Engine Coolant Temperatures exceed 250 degrees and Cylinder Head Temperatures exceeded 290 degrees with a 160 degree thermostat. Huge power loss due to spark and timing retard at these temperature levels.
After installation of the C&R Radiator on track testing revealed amazing results. The Engine Coolant Temperature dropped to a stagnant at 200 degrees and Cylinder Head Temperature stayed a manageable 230-240 degrees. That’s a 50 degree difference in Engine Coolant Temperature and Cylinder Head Temperature. The core design and larger capacity made a tremendous difference in engine cooling performance.
The radiator core is a proprietary core to C&R Racing for NASCAR. It is a low speed core designed for low speed tracks on the NASCAR circuit. Now you can have NASCAR technology, research and engineering on your Shelby GT500. It’s track and street tested and proven. Due to the dramatic decrease in Cylinder Head Temperatures timing can be increased which results in MORE POWER!
