    We have got to get one of the many after market Aluminum Radiator manufactures to start working on a Replacement . To many Hellcat owners have had severe overheating problems.and i know for a fact that when you peg out the temperature gauge the rings can't take it and it will use oil from now on,I am not knocking Dodge I love Dodge Great car Great price,we just need some after market aluminum racing Radiators. if just for peace of mind. what do you think.

    I found this on summit racing web site Griffin High Performance Exact Fit Aluminum Radiatorsfor - PartNumber

    I think the overheating issues have been from cooling fans not coming on..aside from the few catastrophic radiator and hose failures we have heard about.

    For the price of the car Fix It Agin Tony should buy the aluminum Rads. I guess we should all remember we bought a Car of the first model year. Something I said I would never do when I turned a wrench for a living. Oh Well. Let hope that the weak part fail under Warranty :mad::eek:

    Im pretty sure the radiators are the same ones theyve been using in the 392 cars for years. Just a bad batch...

    I think it would be a great idea for the aftermarket like speedlogic to come out with a nice aluminum radiator,,direct fit...

    Your right, because it took them 3 hours to replace mine. No advanced appt. if they were special and needed to be ordered, it probably would have taken at least a couple days.

    High Horse performance carries the Fluidine rad, which is a direct replacement.

    Fluidyne won't fit.

    IF I could get a failed unit it would take 4 weeks to retail availability, cost (retail) in the 850 area (which is Ballpark, vendor would likely become forum supporter and offer discounts, and oh yes they are proven, in racing / durability and design, over and over...)

    I was told it would fit, rad is supposedly the same throughout the LX cars, charger, challenger, 300. I had dealer check with one of his suppliers

    My dealer always seems to have parts on hand. When I went for the fuel rail recall, they had 5 on hand. Overall, pretty good service and I deal directly with one manager. I'm happy with the level of service / satisfaction from them.

    Get Fluidyne to tell you that. And update to include 6.2, then I'll buy. They won't. Said no, I tried, no fit.
