Flex a lite had a nice radiator /fan set up that they have now discontinued. So it looks like there is only Mishimoto ($400)or Be Cool ($900) for radiator options for a 2010 SS. Does anyone know of any other options?
Also.....can't seem to find any higher cfm aftermarket fan system upgrades either.....anyone know of any?

Anyone upgrade their cooling systems????
Probably won't help your problem but I pull the hood insulator rubber off the back of the hood. Air in, it has to get back out. Don't like it, put it back on, It helps on my GN,

Check this website out and watch the video.

Wizard Cooling is who built the radiator I used with (2) 14" Spal PWM brushless fans. NOT cheap but worked extremely well.

Thanks for that. When I talked to vengeance they said they could upgrade to brushless but that they haven't had any problems with the brushed motors. I'm gonna wait till I have the new engine figured out and look at my options again.

No problem. They also were always friendly and had great customer service.

Just a heads up for anyone running the AGP setup. If you get a radiator that is thicker, you might need to rework the "snake" (passenger side plumbing into intercooler). I had to route mine to the outside of the frame. It ended up looking like the driver's side. Those with AGP kits already will understand.

Just for curiosity sake, what is your definition of "NOT cheap"? You can pm if preferred

Here is a screen shot of the invoice. If you were a TIG welder, you might be able to save a few bucks doing your own work after tracking down the parts. I think they sell shroud kits. I am not a good TIG welder so buying it done saved me more in frustration than saving money would.

I also remember at the time them telling me only a few places could even get the fans in question. That has probably changed in since then.

Hey Blake ...did you take any pics of the pass side re route I/C "snake" once done?

Hey Scuzz.....did your AGP passenger side I/C pipe that is real close to radiator need to be modified at all. Blake said his needed to be.
