FLUIDYNE High Performance Radiators - Group Buy Pricing Now Available!

I dropped a (new) core MN12 radiator at Fluidyne in Mooresville this morning. They're going to check it out and work me up a quote for a custom build. Their radiators are 3-core, 3-pass and, I was told, are 1-3/4" thick vs the stock 1-core, 1-pass, 1" thick unit.

Once they have the design figured out it would be easy to do a batch run of these and perhaps lower the price. Would anyone else be interested in ordering one of these with me? You're not going to find a more efficient, better built - direct fit, made in USA - radiator anywhere!

16AUG18 Update:
  • Individual units would be $515 each + shipping.
  • A group buy of 10 or more would be $450 each+ shipping.
  • Turn around would be about two weeks from the time the order is placed.


I think in order to simplify things Let's do this - **Please Read carefully**

  • Payments for $515 can be PayPal sent to [email protected] - *Please include your address!* If we reach the required 10 order minimum I'll refund the difference minus shipping expenses. If we don't reach the minimum order you can pay me the shipping costs when the order is ready to ship.
  • Select either "Send to a Friend" in the amount of $515 or, if you want some insurance, select "Paying for an item or service" and add $15.69 to cover PayPal fees for a total of $530.69
  • **Please PM me your name so that I can match the payments to each of your usernames. If you select "Send to a Friend" Please PM me your mailing address so that I can get the unit to you.
  • I'll take orders until Sunday, August 26 and will place the order on Monday, August 27.
Bump: UPDATED PRICING - 20AUG2018

I just got off the phone with Fluidyne.
  • They do have a smaller-than-stock 16" SPAL fan at 1,600 CFM available for an additional $150 or
  • An HP SPAL fan that is ~ 350 CFM greater than standard for a total of ~ 1,950 CFM for an additional $197
  • Custom installed fan mounting hardware required to fit the 16" fan is an additional $85.
  • So, for an additional $235 you can get a kick ass fan pre-installed on the radiator ready to plug-and-play.
  • There's also a 185° sensor Kit available for $80 This kit would kick the fan on at 185° and off at 178°. This kit would operate independent of the car's fan regulator.

Group Pricing (10 or more) would be the following amounts - Please do not use these discounted amounts to calculate a total unless a group purchase has been confirmed:
  • Fan - Standard SPAL (1,600 CFM): $140 vs $150
  • Fan - HP SPAL (+350 CFM): $180 vs $197
  • Mounting Hardware: $70 vs $85
  • Fan Sensor Kit: $75 vs $80

***If you choose to add any of these items AND select "Paying for an item or service" please add 2.9% of the total + $0.30 to cover the PayPal fees. ***
***https://thefeecalculator.com/ can help you figure out the correct amount to send.***
If you choose "Send to a Friend" there's no need to add the PayPal fees.***
I need serious order confirmations from interested parties at this point. If we can't get to 10 units (9 not counting myself) then the price would be the individual unit cost of $515 + Shipping.

Confirmed buyers in BOLD. We need all these plus one more. I've also inquired at LOD and have confirmed Driller from there. If any of you want to post this to FB and see if you can generate some interest there that would be great!

That's for a 2nd Gen MN12 with the 4.6 right?

Not sure it'd fit my 1991 5.0HO equipped MN12 ... but if it does, that'd be a GREAT option!

Second: Ellie, 1989 Tbird SC, r̶e̶s̶t̶o̶r̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶w̶ ̶d̶a̶i̶l̶y̶. off the deep end

Third: 1997 Dodge Ram 1500, thirsty daily.

  1. It's most likely going to be less than the $658 SCP price - I haven't received a quote yet but I'm thinking in the $500 to $550 range, may be less if we can put a larger batch order together.
  2. It's not from SCP - Regardless of the brand, buy from the source and eliminate the middle man wherever possible.
  3. It's going to look even better than the Griffin unit.
  4. It's going to be from Race City USA - Mooresville, NC - THE home of NASCAR - not SC (Where Griffin is located)!

I honestly don't know the details, there may be little difference between the Fluidyne and the Griffin radiators. But, personally, I'm going with Fluidyne because they're a great company and because they're conveniently located to me. Also, I was actually referred to Fluidyne as the best option for a custom build by the salesman at Cold-Case radiators after discussing options with them.

As a side note, I actually met the owner of Fluidyne and his wife today at the shop - very nice people.

My ultimate goal is going centrifugal and I'm having a hard time finding MN12 setups that show definite clearance between the intake tube and radiator shroud. I found a pic of CobraRThunder's 97 and he cut his shroud and was looking at a pic of RobertP's and couldn't tell if it was cut. Bottom line is if clearance isn't an issue I would be interested in stockpiling another piece to my TBird puzzle.

All I know is if EECDOC is interested, count me in.

I've got at least one project that could benefit from this upgrade.

Great Steve! I hope we can work something out. I'll let everyone know as soon as I hear something from them next week. Hopefully we can work something out.

Also, I found this video while looking around tonight. This is an interview with Gary Johnson, the owner of Fluidyne, who I met on Friday, explaining about the company in an interview he gave back in 2010.

If we get a pricing bracket for varying levels of orders/involvement, along with timelines on deposits/full payment, that would help me decide if it's something I can stomach. The Mark needs a new radiator, and with this... I could upgrade the one in the T-bird and move the newer one in that car over... Hmmm...

Not sure Dusty. Is the 97-04 Mustang Fluidyne radiator a plug and play option?

I'll be sure to ask the next time I talk to them.

It looks to be as plug and play as my 03 Cobra Radiator I have in there now. I have the 97-04 Mustang with no internal cooler in my garage still in the box, waiting for cooler weather. They have the same thing with the internal trans cooler in it. It looks like the same dimensions as the Cobra only thicker 2 core vs 3 core. The only worry I have is the A/C line on the passenger side, pretty close now but I think it should fit without bending the line.

The Cobra is not cool enough pulling a 2500 lb trailer in the mountains, car heats up going up and cools going down. So Fluidyne I hope will do the job, hood vents may also be in order.

The Cobra has a slightly bigger bottom outlet and the Tbird hose is a tight fit, but it worked on the Cobra that has been in there around 12 years.

Bump. I need 10 SERIOUS buyers to make this happen. So far we have 9 (including myself).

They're working up a quote for me today and with a compatible core in stock the turn around on these could be as short as four days!

Update

I heard back from FLUIDYNE today and they indicated that they've been quite busy the past two weeks.

They promised to get back to work on custom radiators next week and will look at ours "first thing Monday".

I expect to have a price quote and other details some time early next week. I'll pass the information along as soon as I hear something.

Also: Still looking for interested buyers! The may be a one time only opportunity to get one of these - don't miss out!

Here are some better pictures of RobertP's engine from 2010 ... under construction with a Trick Flow intake.

He's used a 3R33-8C607-AA Mustang Fan which is shorter. May be this will help. I'm not sure, but I believe he also has a Cobra radiator in the car.

I believe it's this one: https://www.americanmuscle.com/rad-f...mbly-0514.html

Here's another build with a BBK TB/Plenum.

This stock one has clearly been cut.

On a related note, I found the following about fan speeds while doing some research this morning.

Quote:
97-98 fans spin the fastest.

F4SH 8C607 AA is for '94 Thunderbird/Cougar; the Mark VIII is F4LY 8C607 A.

93-96 use p/n F3LY 8C607 A @ 245.80
The 93-96 spin 1100 RPM on low and 1850 RPM on high speed.

97's use p/n F7LZ 8C607 AB @ 196.23
98's use p/n F8LZ 8C607 AA @ 140.11
The 97-98 spin 1800 RPM on low and 2225 RPM on high.

They all look the same, all come with a shroud. The 93-96 spin slower according to Ford Motorsport Tech line.

Then there's this reply:

Yeah, you've got it backwards 5L5 - The 97/98 Mark VIII fans move more CFM than the 93-96. I've personally tested them side by side.

From another source:

Quote:
Here is what I have found on the net:
2 Speed motor numbers
93-96# F3LY-8C607-A
The 93-96 spin 1100 rpms on low and 1850 on highspeed.

97# F7LZ-8C607-AB
98# F8LZ-8C607-AA
The 97-98 spin 1800 on low and 2225 on high.

I recently had to replace my Fuidyne radiator with another one, and that solved my overheating issues for the last two summers. I couldn't get the car to the N in NORM yesterday on a 2-hr trip with A/C on. The temps were mild for Texas summer due to rain, but still. The Fluidyne is actually more than enough for a performance T'birdy

I come from a dusty place.

If any of you guys who use Facebook want to pass the word that we're looking for interested buyers let's see if we can get the count over 10 so that we can get the group rate.

I have numbers!

Individual units would be $515 each.

A group buy of 10 or more would be $450 each.+ Shipping**

Turn around would be about two weeks.

For the Group buy we would need one point of contact, there would be no sales tax for units shipped out of state but shipping would be extra.

I told Ryan I'd get back to him on Monday.

I need serious order confirmations from interested parties at this point. If we can not get to 10 - (9 not counting myself) then the price would be the individual unit cost of $515.
