Easiest way to keep a 600hp+ monster cool at idle. I am not sure my car will overheat yet as the work isn't done, but I want to be proactive. Want my car cool in 80 degree humid weather. Any tricks or expensive overkill parts?
As Ian said large radiator and the two biggest fans that will fit. Also shroud the fans well. You will need A/C where you live. My SPF cools OK with the above at 95 degrees. With fans on engine will stay between 90 and 100 degrees. i have a 500hp 427 Windsor.
But, at idle, how much heat energy are you trying to dissipate? My experience is that the shroud (and fans to a small degree) impedes radiator effectiveness at higher speeds. I'm running 500hp through a 2 row (3" core) that is 26" x 16" with never any overheating (rarely are the fans needed in street traffic).
Thank you guys very much. I am a freak when it come to overkill. I thought you had fans in the engine bay...........lol I should be good then only reaching mid 80's in WI with high humidity. Most of the time it only mid 70's though. Can wait to get mine, its at the shop until end of July rrrrrrrrrr. I am stuck driving my cobra. GT40 was my childhood dream machine and now I finally have one but cant drive it yet. Its torcher I tell ya. I almost bought Kirby's SPF for full price but I was to late he didn't want to sell it, so I pulled the trigger on the CAV before it was gone. I appreciate all the help and info.
