WEAPON-X: Cooling Package [Camaro SS ZL1 gen 6, CTS V, LT1 LT4]
Vendor: WEAPON-X Motorsports
Keep your 6th gen Camaro ZL1 or 3rd gen CTS V cool on the street or track with this Weapon-X cooling package! We built our name on the LSA engine platform with the CTS V and now have a shop ZL1, so of course we're on the forefront of the LT4 market!
Any of you guys who have had the ZL1 or V3 on the dyno are aware that the manifold temp sky rockets when making a pull and after. Pull 1 is in the 130s, we wait and wait and wait, then do Pull 2 which will be down 20hp, and then Pull 3 into the 180s and down another 20hp. To address the heat, you'll want to do two things, more capacity to reduce overall temps and add a better heat exchanger system to cool the fluid faster. This product addresses the first part by increasing the system capacity by 400%! The Trunk Cooler System gets that recovery time down to minutes instead of hours between pulls with the added capacity and ability to ice down the system.
Cooling Kit includes:
- Triple X Cooler Kit
- Stealth Trunk Tank Kit
- 160* Thermostat
Whether you're running stock boost on the supercharged ZL1 or CTS-V or an upgraded pulley kit, you're already aware of the performance killing heat this engine puts out. The more dense the intake charge, the more HP your car will make. When dealing with Centrifugal, Roots, or Twin Screw Superchargers, there's always the issue of intake temps as heat is a byproduct of compression. When running the car hard, you're making a lot of heat that quickly heat soaks the fluid running through the supercharger trying to keep it cool. Heat results in a loss in power as well as the possibility of damage to the engine. Timing lost due to heat above 140* Intake Air Temp sensor 2 can easily rob even a stock ZL1 or CTS V of 25-50+HP on a heat soaked motor. One way to help reduce these intake temps and the risk of damage is to add a more efficient heat exchanger to the system that holds more fluid in the exchange area with more rows/fins per square inch which in turn helps lower intake temps by dissipating heat. This will allow the supercharger to be more efficient while in boost and cool down faster after high boost runs. Made in USA!
Note: The ZL1 has some of the electronics in the trunk floor, which can easily be relocated to the sides behind the carpet without any wiring extensions using the ATS V or CTS V3 plastic mounts.
WXM Trunk Cooler Features:
- Approximately 6 gallons of extra fluid
- High flow pump to put in series with the factory pump for added flow
- Mounts under the hatch floor for a stealth look and you don't lose any trunk space
- Leaves space above the tank to mount other components like a methanol pump
- Large opening to load with ice at the track
- Drain valve that mounts under the car for easy purging to re-ice at the track
- All lines and fittings needed for an easy install
