Nobody has pics of theirs installed so for anyone interested in this radiator, I’m going to post some pics and with it installed hose routing. I Already noticed the Electrical connector is different on this 11” set-up then the 12” fans on my Dewitt. So plan on buying SPALs harness.

    Very interested to see the install process of this, I keep coming across this radiator when I search for possible options.

    Did you get the one with 3 coolers built in (engine, power steering, transmission) or did you get a different one.

    I got the one with PS and oil cooler. No transmission because I have a manual.

    That thing is nice looking! If it didn't cost so much I would be going with that, but I think that dewitts might serve all of my needs! Just have to figure out the upper hose set up and if my cs130 alternator can handle the fans!
    Is this the one with the mutliple tubes(its like 12 side by side miniature tubes which makes it one massive tube?)

    Well got the old one out...forgot that I paid extra for this Dewitt to come with 12” fans versus the 11”. Jegs shows $450 alone for the fans! Pretty significant difference over the C&R...the Dewitt actually looks like a better fan set-up

    Honestly that C&R radiator looks nicer. You have so much more capacity with it. I know I would like to buy that dewitts from you, but if money wasn't an option I'd be going with the c and r... reading about it on other forums makes it seem amazing.

    Looks like the one you took out will be quieter then the one you are putting in based on fan blade pitch

    That's true. Don't the blades on the c and r pull more air though?

    77ADF3BF-E591-4F98-B542-68B0FE663391.jpeg Well the radiator is installed, but not without its issues. Of course the radiator cap is on the driver side so I need to run a long hose to the overflow. I did expect that, but the radiator has a 5/16” hose while the factory one is 3/8”. The biggest pain is the cooler connections. They sit high on the radiator so they interfere with my CAI. Put it on hold for now, but it’s going

    Sure is pretty , and you changed to this just for the extra cooling for the PS and oil cooling correct? you would think they would let you pick where you would want that fitting located , seeing as they know what you were going to use them for , hopefully , it will solve that issue , and you can get back to the track, and have some fun.
