Our favorite thing to do here is to help those with cooling issues. It sounds simple, but it’s a bit deeper than that. A lot of times, they’re ongoing for those with heavily modified vehicles, so when we can provide a product to overcome it, customers are super appreciative – less time sitting in the pits (or on the side of the road) and more time enjoying what they’ve built.

Though they’ve undergone extensive R&D, sometimes vehicles fresh from the factory can have the same issues – like the C7 Corvette, for example. Corvettes have long been known for their cooling shortcomings and, seeing as how it’s a car that’s no stranger to performance driving, it tends to become an issue more often that not.

One event in particular was when the Z06 failed to complete a hot lap during the 2015 Motor Trend “Best Driver’s Car” competition. Regardless of the issues at hand, somehow it still put down one of the fastest laps overall compared to its competition. According to Motor Authority, C7 Z06 Corvette owners have banned together to serve General Motors a new class-action lawsuit over the car’s alleged cooling system defects. It’s the fourth class-action lawsuit over this matter. Even though GM claims to have a fix for the cooling issue, many still experienced “limp mode” during track sessions, and some on the streets and highways.

Our friends over at MotoIQ have a Z51 C7 and claim that it’s not rare to see the vehicle (in ideal conditions) hit temperatures around 220-230 degrees, in turn, sending the car into limp mode. We teamed up with them to put our high-performance radiator through its paces. Tested on the track in 100-degree Central California heat, the C7’s coolant temperature never exceeded 208 degrees.

Featuring CSF’s exclusive B-Tube Technology and multi-louvered fins, our “drop-in fit” radiator’s larger core size increases heat dissipation by roughly 15% over stock. Not only is it larger than OE, its all-aluminum design is more durable, easy to install and, of course, more efficient.

 The radiator is designed with provisions for the OEM air guides, vents, surge tank, and fan assembly – allowing for an easy installation.

~33% Thicker Core Than Stock C7 Stingray Radiator 
With CSF’s unique triple-pass technology, the radiator’s coolant flows through the radiator core three times rather than just once. This allows ambient air to exchange heat with the coolant for three times longer, generating the lowest outlet temperature possible.

    Hello. I have a 2015 Corvette C7 Z06. It recently received an upgrade from GM dealer because it goes into limp mode when in the track because of overheating. It is much better after the upgrade but it still goes into limp mode when I use the car on the track. I would like to try to replace the radiator to one of your csf radiators. I live in Dominican Republic. Let me know if you have a dealer near by. Thank you in advance for your time. Best regards.

    Hello Ilan,
    We do not have any dealers or distributors in the Dominican Republic currently. You would need to contact one of our North American dealers and arrange shipping through them.
