CSF has been great to deal with the whole way through and will be making it right for anyone who purchased the radiators; they will be in contact with all involved, doing things the right way.

For the record, I have repaired mine(and not taking CSF's very generous/proper offer of replacement) and will continue testing, I am told I am the first person with a complete set installed.

Will keep all updated,
Cheers,
Rob
Thanks for the update! Will be doing mine this summer and have been following this thread closely! You have any pics of yours installed?

Mine have been installed for almost a month now, have put 1000+km's on them including time at the drag strip doing 'hot-laps'...since solving the initial incident regarding the vent-line necks(which have ALL been fixed/replaced), these rads have been great IMO, temperature as read on the gauge is lower and more consistent, never see above ~185F even during WOT passes and then sitting in staging lanes or traffic. Plan on getting on the roadcourse in the next week or two and using the car where it belongs, and will update then as well.
Again, I will say that the beauty of these rads is the peace of mind knowing that there is no plastic is fail/spray coolant.
If you have any questions I'm happy to help.
Cheers,
Rob

anyone else have their set installed?
mine have been great, datalogged 2 days ago on a HOT 36C degree day, water temps stayed completely stabile at 81-82C even during/after a few good pulls
(Highest recorded temp was 87.8*C, idling after the drive/pulls...GT2's only have 1 rad. fan)

Can anyone update on reliability? Issues? I noted there was a small potential defect but nothing more. I recently searched and they do NOT show the 996tt/GT2 center radiator? I am about to tear into my 6-2 to determine where a minor leak is in the center radiator area and if replacement turns out to be required, would think these might be the best units... IF they are actually available and functioning correctly.

Any feedback appreciated.

put ~10,000km on mine this year, they have been great. No issues other then the initial fitment issue I found(I have the first set), which was quickly corrected by CSF.
Need #'s 7055, 7056, 7053
Cheers,

They do have all 3 radiators. CSF is evidently about to update the cores on these radiators with a beefier fin structure as the current ones are reported to be a bit fragile. I would make sure you get the new design cores.

See post #8

Guys,
THANKS a bunch! Now I will finally tear into mine and figure out what I need. Regardless, these sound like a much needed upgrade for our cars and I am sure I will be at customer later if not now.
Regards,

Thanks for reporting the post. That was a spambot. They've been popping up a lot lately on this forum, and I've seen them start elsewhere.

The bot copies the first sentence of a post early in the thread and posts it as their own. Sometimes they'll include attachments or links, but not often from what I've seen.

cross post from RL:
figured I'd update this...
I have the first set of CSF rads made for our cars, and now have just over 40,000km's on them, have been trouble-free and temps have been great, street and track.
Cheers,
Rob
