Well I gotta get a new radiator for my truck. Ordered one las night found out today that theres a short supply of them and the gotta make more, which would take 3 weeks. So went ahead and ordered a heavy duty radiator. Meant for an AC which i might put AC on it sometime. Would this radiator cool faster tho?

I think you would need to have a larger fan to take full advantage of it.



Adding A/C to a vehicle is no easy task. It may be easier on an older vehicle, but making it leakproof is going to be a *****

there is no difference in a radiator with or without a/c... what matters if if it has an interneral oil cooler and transcooler... both are good to have cause they keep you fluids all the same temp..

Sorry Joe, but there is a difference. A radiator meant for a truck with AC will be larger because of the flow restriction caused by the condensor.
