Flex-A-Lite (316061): Extruded-Core Radiator and Dual Electric Fans for ’68-’72 Chevelle

Replacing multi-core radiators with its advanced new design, this extruded-core, direct-fit radiator bolts into 1968–1972 Chevy Chevelles and other GM A-body vehicles with an LS engine swap (no cutting or drilling required; radiator mounts using factory locations). For the 316061, Flex-A-Lite included a fully shrouded dual-fan system, which moves 4,600 cfm of airflow, and a variable speed controller.

Features

  • For 1968–1972 Chevy Chevelle and other GM A-body applications
  • Increased contact area between the coolant and aluminum tubes for better heat rejection
  • Louver patterns cut into the cooling fins to better direct airflow.
  • Wind-tunnel tested to show significant efficiency gains in cooling over standard tube radiators
  • 100-psi burst rating
  • Corner subhead reinforces the cooling tube–to–header connection (an area prone to cracking and leaking in other brands of aluminum radiators)
  • Warranty: 2 years (transferrable)

PROFORM (69520): Ignition Coil Brackets for GM LS1/S6 V8 Engines

PROFORM has the solution for what to do with those pesky coils in confined spaces. The company’s 69520 ignition coil brackets lift your coils off your valve cover so you can see the Chevrolet emblem. How do they work? A unique rail-mounting system attaches to the threaded holes on the valve cover, and the individual coils attach to the rail to allow for mounting in multiple positions. All necessary hardware is included. Also available for LS3/S7 applications (PN 69521).

Note: PROFORM coil brackets are not compatible with AC Delco coils D585 and D581 or stock spark plug wires (which are not long enough); if making your own wires, a 13–15” length is required.

Features

  • For LS1 and LS6 coils.
  • Compatible with PROFORM LS slant-edge valve covers.
  • Includes brackets and hardware.
  • Sold in pairs.

Flex-A-Lite: Direct-Fit Radiators for LS Engine Swaps

Flex-A-Lite is bringing us a new line of performance aluminum radiators designed just for LS engine swaps. These dual-pass, direct-fit radiators were engineered so that the 1.25” inlet and 1.5” outlet are on the passenger-side tank, which includes a 0.25” NPT bung for the steam port tube.

Flex-A-Lite gave these performance radiators a unique Extruded Tube Core technology, which increases contact area between coolant and the extruded tubes and provides a flat surface to braze the cooling fins to; combined, these characteristics allow for better heat rejection and cooling. Wind tunnel testing has shown that this Extruded Tube Core offers significant cooling efficiency over standard tube radiators.

Extruded Tube Core Features

  • Replaces multi-core radiators with an advanced design.
  • Increases contact area between coolant and the extruded tubes.
  • Provides a flat surface to braze the cooling fins to, maximizing contact between the tubes and fins.
  • Louver patterns better direct airflow.
  • Significantly stronger (100 PSI burst rating).
  • Corner subhead reinforces the cooling tube to header connection (an area prone to cracking and leaking in other brands of aluminum radiators).
  • Direct-fit applications bolt in without any drilling or cutting.
  • Available with and without a Flex-A-Lite electric fan installed at the factory.
  • Warranty: 2 years (transferable).
