Cool Under the Blue Collar – Radiator R&D, Part 2: Prototype & Production

As the threads of the last bolt spun their way out, Jason hoisted the stock radiator out of the Ram’s engine bay, over his head, and set it on the ground next to his workbench. With the radiator laying next to the truck, it was easy to see why we’re making a replacement. The chiseled fenders and snarling grill of the 2017 Ram portray a truck built for power. The anemic core and plastic end tanks of the Ram’s radiator, on the other hand, look like they come from a truck built to meet a budget. Dodge’s most popular truck is … Continue Reading ››

Old Dog, New Tricks – Intercooler R&D, Part 2: Plans & Prototypes

Tucked between the battery and the radiator, buried beneath a tangle of coolant hoses, lies the heart of the Ford Powerstroke 6.7L charge air cooling system.  This chunk of aluminum, the air-to-water intercooler, is responsible for keeping your workhorse breathing easy.

When we looked at this project last, we outlined what makes air-to-water intercoolers different from your typical air-to-air intercooler and why they’re used in heavy-duty applications.  We also took our waterjet … Continue Reading ››

A Cooler Cummins – Intercooler R&D, Part 4: Final Prototype

We are back with a much-needed update on our 13+ Dodge Cummins intercooler. For most of our projects, we work with a donor vehicle to conduct fitment and performance testing. Unfortunately, this also means being patient when donor vehicles are not available for us to use. The good news is that we will not have to be patient for much longer, because testing is on our schedule! Once we complete testing in the coming weeks, we will be sure to share the results with you. In the meantime we can take a quick look at our finalized prototypes for testing! [caption id="attachment_9282" … Continue Reading ››
