Upgrade to a Factory-Fit All Aluminum Radiator
O.E.M. radiators are just that, Original Equipment. They are designed to cool stock applications and overheating can take the fun out of cruising your hot rod or muscle car quickly. Be Cool designs their radiators in the same ''Crossflow'' / ''Downflow'' configuration as the original radiator to avoid any installation issues but that is where the similarities stop! Crossflow radiators are constructed with their tanks on the sides, while a Downflow radiator has its tanks on the top and bottom of the core. A commonly asked question is: Which is better, a Crossflow or Downflow radiator? The answer: Both will cool the same as long as the core surface of the radiator is the same in square inches.
Cooling monster motors, especially when faced with common problems like tight spaces and small grille openings can be a challenge. Be Cool's cooling technology produces radiators that are 40% lighter than conventional O.E.M. units, yet have greater cooling power. These aluminum radiators feature a dual 1'' tube core, .080'' thick aluminum tanks. They are manufactured with OEM-sized inlets and outlets in the correct OEM locations. Additionally, they come with a billet filler neck and a brass petcock. Each radiator is 100% pressure tested before being shipped in expanding foam packaging. Their epoxy-free construction provides better heat dissipation, too, while allowing complete repairability. They are available in a natural aluminum or a mirror-polished finish that is real show stopper!
All Be Cool radiators are compatible with all coolants and 100% Made In The USA! They are Guaranteed to lower your coolant temperature a minimum of 20-degrees, or your money back! In fact most customers report even greater coolant temperature drops. If you have a stock vehicle think O.E.M., but if you have a performance vehicle you should consider Be Cool! Made In The USA.

What Are Be Cool Pontiac Factory-Fit Aluminum Radiators Common Pros and Cons?
Be Cool radiators are made in the USA and feature very high quality aluminum materials and assembly. They also cool much better than original factory radiators with a copper/brass design. Because of the attention to detail and the use of a more expensive material, Be Cool radiators tend to be higher in price than other radiators.
Which Be Cool Pontiac Factory-Fit Aluminum Radiators Are Best?
The best Be Cool Pontiac radiator (for example, a 1968 GTO radiator) depends on personal preference. All Be Cool radiators are made from high quality materials and assembly. When narrowing down your options, the first process is to find all of the options that fit your vehicle, for example a 68 Pontiac Ventura (Catalina trim option). Next, if your car has an automatic transmission, you have the option of selecting the radiator with a built-in transmission cooler, similar to factory-equipped radiators. Then you can select the type of finish, whether natural or polished. Finally, you may have the option to purchase a complete kit that includes installation options like mounts, coolant over flow tank, or wiring.
How Much Do Be Cool Pontiac Factory-Fit Aluminum Radiators Cost?
A Be Cool Pontiac radiator starts at around $600 and ranges in price up to $2500, depending on the application and included components such as an electric fan, overflow tank, and wiring harness.
