Last issue, we took a detailed look at the different ways to actually build an aluminum radiator. Something else you should ponder is if a rad company is actually a manufacturer or just an assembler.
We’re not quite done with false impressions when it comes to radiators: Some companies offer radiators configured as a double-pass or triple-pass design, and while that sounds impressive, the name can be a little misleading.
In the big picture, it’s pretty clear that aluminum makes for a better radiator, but there’s even more to the technology.
When the dog days of summer roll around, you’ll be quick to think of the radiator in the nose of your car.
