Does anyone know of a directory for radiator sizes?

Iím looking for one approx 600x250x25, ideally with 19mm outlets, to use in front of my radiator for the chargecooler.

I was thinking that sounds pretty huge for a charge cooler rad, i would expect somthing more in like with a scooter rad.

Is there a rule of thumb for water volume per BHP for these?

will 660x175x50 fit?

dont know a lot about this but from what ive figured out and looked around

http://www.frozenboost.com/water-to-air-he...tor-p-1063.html

volume is just time to change temp move volume slower temp rise but also longer cool off time

the "best" setup is the largest but more importantly slimmest rad that will fit away from hot stuff with good cool air flow
this will land the water temp as close as possible to what the ambient air is
a thick rad cant get near as good as thin ones as the thin ones a good example is the A/C heat exchanger

the thing to watch out for and that catches people out is the actual charge cooler normally a unit to small is fitted ie a barrel.. the air needs surface area and time to dump its heat off into the coolant

Yeah, too thick.

My contact at PWR has told me to go for no bigger than a 25mm core, hence why Iím struggling a bit!

Could you not use a large heater matrix from a large car?

The research Iíve done so far says that motorbike rads are rarely efficient enough.

Also that sealing the rad is quite important.

Think Iím just going to get a custom one done....

Together they look about the Size of a Mini Rad. By the looks they are 40mm Core, but you get the idea.

if mine ever gets back together ill post up how bad or good ive changed it since last time

from the brief time it was together i can say that it worked well although heat soak was an isue if it was parked or stood at the lights
when you took off and the temps would stay high until the rad had fresh air and had time to dump the heat out this was a big problem despite the fans running
but that said once you got going it sorted its self out it was grate just a nice steady temp rise that always lagged behind the boost you could roll race it and have the temps hold a few degrees above air and slowly rise
but by then you have lifted off and are coasting down so the higher temp is fine at that point
buy the time you coasted down you could hit it again with fresh cold air

with good ducting i think most of the standing temp rise could be done away with just a case of getting the hot air to go away from the ic rad
