    Radiator & Fan set up

    Ok, Who has the best Radiator and Fan for the DeLorean, best cooling, fit, low amp draw... I am going to replace soon, as summer is here, and it gets hot.
    Thanks for your help!

    I have the EU radiator and Toby fans which I like very much. There are some new vendors products I have not seen in person yet.

    There is no "kit" of rad and fan assembly. They are sold separately but of course can be combined. For the rad get a brass 3 core. For the fans, the OEM ones are OK and move a lot of air but use a LOT of power. They do use the shroud and that makes them very efficient. If you get Spalls or something similar try to get something that can use the shroud. Makes them more efficient and easier to mount. No one should be using the OEM rad with plastic tanks. They are too old and were never meant to be used for 30 + years. It is amazing that so many have lasted so long as they have.

    Yes we offer both styles. Just specify when ordering. No price difference!

    Ok, I went with the 3 row Brass, and the 2 11" fans that use a total of 11 Amps instead of 28 Amps... I will let you know how it does..

    There are most certainly kits, mr.guru

    AND (as already mentioned)

    If you are getting a new radiator get the aluminum one. You will notice your coolant temps drop 10-20F across the board. It is superior to any other rad you will find, do not bother with the brass cored radiators, regardless of core count. They are the same price, if not cheaper for an aluminum rad. It is a no-brainer!
