All-aluminum cooling system upgrades for Porsche and BMW
From: CSF Radiators

CSF has introduced a full line of premium race-spec cooling systems for Porsche and BMW. These European makes are known for their racing pedigrees, but there are weaknesses. CSF has addressed critical areas of overheating and durability to the cooling systems, essential in both high performance and racing environments.

PORSCHE All-aluminum two-row racing radiator upgrades for every 997/987 and 996/986 Porsche application, including GT3, GT2 and Turbo versions. Not only do these radiators perform ~20% better than the OEM units, they address the biggest issue of weak plastic end tanks. All Porsche cooling systems are mounted at the corners and center of the vehicle behind the front bumper in a floating bracket design. Because of this configuration the stock end tanks are highly susceptible to cracking due to bumper-to-bumper contact and high vibration when veering off track. BOOM! Race over unless you have CSF’s all-aluminum radiators with CNC machined aluminum mounting pins to take abuse race after race. A ‘drop-in’ fit requiring no modifications, complete with a mirror finish. Available in limited quantities with introductory pricing starting at $499 each.
BMW The world’s most advanced six-cylinder E30 and E36 (including M3) two-row radiator, as well as a brand new and innovative triple-pass design for the E46 M3. For the E9x M3, CSF has introduced a ‘drop-in’ fit race-spec oil cooler with 25% more surface area. High oil temperatures on the E9x M3 have been a constant struggle for serious track enthusiasts. This oil cooler will work with all supercharger configurations as well.
– E30/36 radiator – MSRP: $269
– E46 M3 radiator – MSRP: $499
– E9x M3 oil cooler – MSRP $799

Audi A6/S6/RS6/AllRoad air suspension kit
From: Air Lift Performance

The front monotube threaded-body shock is topped off with a smooth-riding double bellow air spring to allow the front end to drop 4.25″ from stock with the push of a button. Thirty different levels of damping will give you the option of a luxury smooth ride or race car stiff and everything in between with just a simple twist of the knob. Red anodized end caps keep the rubber air spring connected to the black chromed shock bodies.


For the rear, a progressive rate sleeve style air spring was mounted to a 30-way adjustable, threaded-body, monotube shock allowing the rear to become 5.98″ closer to the pavement. Since the front shocks turned out so well, we decided to use the same recipe for the rear, utilizing the same red end caps mated to black chromed shocks.

Detailed instructions will help you to have your Audi slammed within a few short hours. If you do run into a snag, the Air Lift Performance tech support team can walk you through any questions you may have.

In order to bring to market the most durable air suspension possible, Air Lift Performance tortured the components of this kit to 1 million cycles (equal to approximately 100K miles) on their hydraulic test rig at temperatures from -30 deg F to 150 deg F. Couple this test lab work with thousands of miles of on-road testing and the one year manufacturer’s warranty: this is a kit you can count on to handle whatever the road throws down!

In another life I used to work for a radiator company. I cannot begin to tell you how horrible CSF oem style radiators were "the ones with plastic end caps on them". They were only slightly better than spectra premium ones which would have a 60% return rate. Misumato, Reach and Koyo were among the aftermarket brands I would spend my cash on.


CSF has started a Performance division now that makes premium products. That's what we are focusing on with them.


CSF has been making all aluminium radiators. I do not question their build quality. It's just the oem style ones with plastic end caps that I can say were a mess. For some older Toyota trucks/cars they mad all copper brass radiators that were very nice. But any of the ones with a seal and a crimp were a complete mistake of engineering.


Rü$╫  yep, plastic end caps are horrible...


If I was putting a radiator on an evo 8, wouldmt go for csf, hks have better build quality


Audi S3 V8?


zomg those ze40's. WANT


LukeEVOLUTIONVIII  HKS makes radiators? Got a link?


muhammadilham Rü$╫  A lot of OEM radiators use plastic end tanks. That's exactly what the CSF Performance radiators fix, by using an all aluminum construction like the picture shows and the text describes. Not sure why you're talking about plastic end tanks when none are shown.


LukeEVOLUTIONVIII I'd stick with Mishimoto


Rü$╫  Do you mean Mishimoto? I googled Misumato to check them out but couldn't find any info...


LioMaddrifter I think they mean 8V which is the model code for the new A3's


alexdammit LioMaddrifter  Oops sorry - bit of a mix-up there. Now fixed.


SuzyWallace alexdammitLioMaddrifter Hahaha it would be a great idea an S3 with the V8 engine though


LioMaddrifter SuzyWallace alexdammit  Ha, I know! Typo leads to genius idea...


LioMaddrifter SuzyWallacealexdammit S' never are V8. There should be a V8 SR3 though.


LukeEVOLUTIONVIII I'd stick to Koyo.


RaySpijk LioMaddrifter SuzyWallace alexdammit  You mean the RS3? Only SR3 I know is a Radical... although a V8 one of those would be 'interesting'! ;)


Stick with Mishimoto? If you're prepared to have your car blow up... Even pro drivers (mostly drifters) take their sponsorships (and their cash), and run the products upside down because they can't stand supporting the company. They hate standing behind them. It's been a industry joke for quite some time now. 
Can't really fault Mishimoto though because they don't even make any of their own products. Go ahead and continue to support knock off companies.. 
You should be ashamed of yourself!!


@Chimmy Hendrix  Wow, you seem really butthurt at such a simple opinion. 

If a pro-drifter would take the time to mount a radiator upside-down because he didn't want to show the logo as you claim, why would said drifter even run that company's rad in the first place? Wouldn't it be far easier to simply buy a radiator from someone they stand behind and install it correctly? It's a rhetorical question: the answer is they install it upside down for fitment purposes most of the time not because they want to hide a logo. What a terribly uneducated thing to say. 

Also, I have many friends (and myself) with track cars who run Mishimoto rads and have never had a problem. Never bought a CSF or Koyo so unfortunately I can't give an opinion on them as well.


Indeed. Why autocorrect did that I don't know.
