With a 3.6 motor in the car and in a hot zone you MUST have (2) coolers up front.

The best start by far to a front cooler system is to use the factory Brass Hardlines and Thermostat assy that are available used.

Try to find them locally, as shipping is costly. UPS and Fedex want to charge an extra fee for the oversize length.

The factory lines are 30mm, which is in between AN-12 and AN-16.

I would recommend the factory Radiator type Cooler with Fan in the Front Right fender and adding either a center mount aux cooler (reqs an opening in the Valence) or a Front Left fender mounted cooler.

These aux coolers are available in AN-12, M30, or AN-16. AN-12 is likely the least costly and may be available used. This sizes seems to be adequate, especially if just
for the street. You must adapt from M30 to the AN size and the adapters add to the cost and take up space.

In case you cannot find them locally, I have the factory lines and thermostat available used. I also make up custom oil hoses to connect to the rest of the system that are considered "factory level" by those who know me.

I also offer "Direct Connect" fittings for using AN-12 with M30 that eliminates the need for adapters and are available at no extra cost.



Please email me for info. I am happy to help.
