Unless you're new to the racing game, you already know that the WEAPON-X heat exchangers are the most highly regarded for their cooling and also requested by tuners from shops all over the world. So, of course we'd be on the forefront of the new LT4 powered market!
Any of you guys who have had the a 6th gen ZL1 or 3rd gen CTS V 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 second part by cooling more fluid at any given time! The Triple X system gets that recovery time down to minutes instead of hours between pulls by holding THREE times the amount of fluid!
The system is interesting because the passenger side is for the rad and the driver side is tied to the center HX. I'm guessing this is because of the Z06 cooling issues. So, we made ones for both sides though since the bumper will be off and to help the radiator system.
