Delilah got a cooling upgrade yesterday.

B5B78E3C-2DAE-41CE-B045-502AEF3CB7AC.jpeg
New 3 core radiator


Replaced the OEM 5/8” core radiator with a 2 1/4” 3row aluminum one from flea bay. ($140 after several offers)...

OEM 5/8” core radiator, served me well for 275k


0FC39C19-59BB-44A6-8F89-EDE86C2A27D0.jpeg
Quite a bit thicker...


Swapped out my heater core at the same time.. did not have a visible leak but the air was feeling a little ‘moist’. :whistle:

Thinking I won’t need to turn off the AC now on those high mountain passes, or when buzzing across Death Valley. :rockon:

Well, have not mentioned it for a while.

Nice new radiator and your pics are sideways.
