Datsun 1600 Radiator intercooler kit SR20DET S13 CIK1603
Complete radiator intercooler kit S13
This kit has it all. What is pictured on this page is what you get. Custom radiator 520 x 400 x35 with 1600CFM 16" Spal thermo fan with thermo switch and loom. Large enough to cool the hotest SR. 450x300x76 intercooler with cast elbows, pipe and hose kit, billet alloy water outlet, quick fit mounting kit with rubber mountings, constant tension rad hose clamps. Stainless wrap type T clamps,. IAC valve hose ( not shown) Vacuum hose, T pieces etc.
Plenty of clearance from the engine and requires no alteration to the body or trim other than opening up the rad support panel. The kit is compact and if the front of the IC is painted satin black you would not be aware that an intercooler was fitted to the vehicle.
Once fitted the radiator assembly complete with fan can be removed in minutes. Simply undo the radiator hoses, unplug the thermo switch, loosen the 2 top cotton reel mounting bolts and lift the radiator assembly up and out.
To remove the intercooler is just as easy. Disconect the hoses at the elbows, undo the top cotton reel mounts, tilt the rad back into the engine bay & lift out.
Piping kit with lower mounting plate.
The mounting plate locates on the front chassis rails 22mm from the rad support panel & is attached with stainless cap screws. This is the only measuring needed as the plate locates the IC in the large grommets and the rad pins
in the smaller ones. Note the swaged ends on the alloy IC pipes.
Radiator fan assembly
The large 520x400x35 radiator has an inbuilt over flow tank. The rad is supplied fully assembled.
The 16" spal slimline high performance thermo fan is switched by a thermo switch mounted on
the inlet tank. This fan is so good that it runs for only 8 seconds at a time to cool an idling SR.
Thermo switch turns on at 92c and off at 87c. The polished top plate sits 6mm above the front lip on the rad support panel so that high pressure air trapped at this point flows through the top cores of the radiator.
The thick alloy cover plate also contributes to cooling by absorbing and dissipating heat.
