Whether you're running stock boost on the supercharged C7 Z06 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 C7 Z06 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!
The factory C7 Corvette radiator is a production unit and sure it works for the average Vette owner, but you're different right? You had to have more HP and want to keep that tire shredding, turn smashing, strip terrorizing monster you've modified as cool as possible. A cooler engine is a more efficient engine. High heat blocks can lead to detonation/KR and eventually failure. If you're in hotter climates, this is even more necessary as the effects of convection are lessened with hotter air passing through any radiator. A cooler motor translates to more HP and a longer engine life. Features: Complete Aluminum Radiator Integrates with factory fan. Works with all factory hoses and connection points Lifetime Warranty Made in USA! Gen 2 option: The new design uses a lower serpentine fin, which allows us to pack (7) seven more rows of tubes in the same size core. The tubes have dimples stamped into them to create turbulence, which promotes flow and heat exchange.
For Stage 2, you add the expansion tank/ice tank below!
Unless you're new to the Cadillac Racing game, you already know that the WEAPON-X is the most highly regarded name in the business for performance and cooling products. So, of course we'd be on the forefront of the C7Z market!
Any of you guys who have had the C7Z 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.
CPR Cooler Tank:
- Approximately 1.5 gallons of extra fluid
- Mounts in engine bay
- Large opening to load with ice at the track
