Video: Proform’s Slim-Fit Radiator Systems For Direct-Fit Series


There’s no shortage of aftermarket radiators, even for the Mopar market. The difference is that many of these companies simply go with a “one size fits all” mentality and weld on the necessary brackets to fit all of the many applications possible. While a great way to cut costs, it also opens you up to a world of ill-fitting parts.

Proform Parts has seen to eliminate the stress and frustration that comes will radiators that collide with water pump pulleys by re-engineering the aluminum radiator from the ground-up. With its new Slim-Fit Radiator System, Proform is doing away with the three-piece (core, fan, and shroud) configuration that can eat up to 8-inches of valuable real estate.

Proform created a crazy-new “unified” radiator system that is less than 4-inches thick, and comes pre-assembled right out-of-the-box, ready for direct fit into your A, B and E-body Mopar!

How did Proform do it? They stated, “we flipped the motor around so instead of hanging on the outside, it’s integrated directly into a uniquely designed core made with state-of-the-art brazing technology (with no meaningful cooling compromise). The core itself is a hybrid combination of traditional dual 1″ tubes, and full core width extruded tubes. Combine this with a high-performance fan blade inserted into a smooth aluminum shroud, the result is the industry’s thinnest, most streamlined look.”
