Radiator size dimensions?

Post by killaz » Mon Feb 21, 2011 8:17 am

Did you upgraded your system or you are running standard radiator? Specially interested in 3.0 24v.. It's time to change mine and I saw that radiator from AR164 24v is bigger than mine in 75 America... :|

Thanks for help!

75 2.4 TD rad is the biggest one you'll find for the 75.

But remember the 164 is also a heavier car and that would put more heat in the engine ( it has to work harder in the 164).

I wouldn't worry about it unless the fan kicks in everytime...

Yeah, I saw that TD has 6 cm wider rad than one in TS/V6 so I guess it's not such extreme improvement. Better to save some penny for coilovers. :)

Is the 164 TD rad even bigger than the 24V? If yes, fit that. Although I live in a warmer climate and the 75 2.4 TD rad is more than adequate and installing it is probably easier.

Don't know about 164TD, I was just comparing radiators from 75 TD to 75 V6. New one came (V6 size) and core looks quite different comparing to original.

Just to resume things and bring some conclusion... I bought replacement cooler for Alfa 75 3.0 12v. First impression is that this thing is way much lighter than original part (new cooler with fan mounted on weighs like dry old radiator).

Things are being cooled much faster, when fan kicks in he blows for much shorter time than it used to. Everything fits perfectly - no mods required. Thing is signed by "International radiators" and comes with two year warranty - good enough for me. :lol:

I'll see how it performs in summer, but no doubt - I believe it will be better. Price was 80 euro's.

Some pictures..

If anyone interested. Custom made aluminium radiators for GTV are available on ebay. Shipped from France. Very reasonable price in my opinion. Just ordered one.
