Performance Engine Cooling

When most people think of performance they think of more horsepower and faster speed. Unfortunately, one of the by-products of pulling more power from your engine and pushing your car harder on the road and the track, is more heat. Unless this heat is effectively removed, your engine can be reduced to a steaming lump of scrap metal. Along with performance parts for the fuel exhaust, and ignition, you need performance cooling system parts and we have them.

The cooling system transfers heat from the engine to the coolant, which then dissipates it to the surrounding air in the radiator. High performance engines create more heat than the stock cooling system can handle, so you need components with increased capacity and heat transfer capability. Our performance aluminum radiators have more coolant capacity, with thicker cores and more rows, and increased fin count, for better heat transfer.

    When a performance radiator with larger diameter tubes is installed, coolant flow must also be increased to maintain optimum velocity through the radiator. We offer high performance water pumps that increase coolant flow and most are made from lightweight aluminum, so you’ll save weight when replacing an OE cast iron pump. Increasing airflow through the radiator is also necessary with a thicker core to ensure optimal heat transfer. We have performance electric cooling fans in single and double fan configurations, with and without shrouds, as well as multi-blade performance mechanical fans.

    Excessive heat is destructive, but your engine still needs to run within a temperature range that enables it to be the most efficient and make the best power, so a thermostat is necessary. However, unlike ordinary thermostats, the high-performance thermostats we offer will maintain operating temperature without restricting coolant flow. Our silicone performance radiator hoses can handle high temperatures and they’re available in multiple colors, but if stainless steel is more your style, check out our braided steel hoses and polished stainless performance coolant reservoirs.

    Although plain water has the best heat transfer capabilities, your car has to operate in the real world of sub-freezing temperatures and idling in traffic on hot summer days, so coolant is necessary. We have the premium coolant that will lower the freezing point and raise the boiling point, as well as additives that improve cooling system efficiency. These additives reduce air bubbles and pockets that can cause hot spots, so the coolant completely contacts internal engine and radiator surfaces. This increases the cooling system’s heat transfer abilities so you get a cooler running engine.
