( CSF #7092 )
In an effort to continue to expand CSF’s off-road product lineup, we have redesigned the existing 2nd generation Toyota Tacoma to now fit the 3rd generation. As of August 2020, the new version (CSF part number 7092), includes a bushing adapter kit, allowing for a drop-in fit for both 2nd and 3rd gen. Tacomas.
If you’re looking for a truck to pile in the surfboards, snowboards or the camping gear, the Toyota Tacoma is on the top of the list. The Tacoma is known to be a “Do-All” truck, with an optional four-wheel-drive and 4.0L V6 that can tow up to 6,200 lbs. With an abundant amount of aftermarket modifications and performance upgrades available in the market, these Taco’s are highly capable of being off-road beasts!
Design & Engineering
It’s hard to throw obstacles in the Tacoma’s way that it can’t overcome fairly easily. However, one hindrance that will stop you from reaching your next adventurous destination is the lacking factory provided radiator. CSF has developed a new all-aluminum high-performance 2-row radiator to keep these “Tacos” COOL! Introducing the Ultimate Performance Radiator for the Second Gen Toyota Tacoma by CSF.
With much success in CSF’s exclusive High-Performance Radiator for the Toyota FJ Cruiser (CSF #7076). The over-landing community made it clear that the Cooling Experts had another vehicle they needed to address. The Tacoma radiator features CSF’s exclusive B-Tube technology that increases the heat dissipation by approximately 15% over regular tubes as well as multi-louvered fins to maximize airflow through the radiator core. 100% TIG welded construction ensures a higher level of reliability and durability compared to the OEM plastic tanks, which may become brittle or susceptible to cracking, considering early models are now 14+ years old. Many are driven in extreme conditions, from dry desert heat to mud obstructing off-roads so they definitely take a beating. The added stress on the motor in irregular conditions can cause these Tacoma’s to over-heat.
CSF maximized the space in front of the motor, developing a radiator unit that has over 50% more capacity than the OEM unit, going from the provided 27mm 1-row core to the CSF 42mm 2-row B-Tube core. Even with its added capacity, the new CSF#7092 High-Performance Radiator is still a “drop-in fit,” requiring no modifications to install and still finished in CSF’s signature 1-hour mirror hand polish. A true plug-and-play upgrade and replacement solution topped off with CSF’s 2-year limited warranty.
CSF’s 2-row high-performance radiator is 55% thicker than the older OEM unit with 15 mm of more ultra-efficient cooling capacity and better heat transfer efficiency.
