Introducing the Flex-a-lite 50th Anniversary Camaro SS Project

2012 June 14

We’re in the business of building performance cooling products. But every once in a while, we take it upon ourselves to build a performance car or truck to show off our wares. At the last SEMA show, we introduced a Flex-a-fit® direct-fit aluminum radiator and electric fan combination for the popular 2010-2011 Camaro. For the show, we outfitted an otherwise stock Camaro SS with the new system (you can watch the installation by clicking here). As we made preparations for our 50th Anniversary Tour, we decided to make some more modifications to the Camaro to complement the Flex-a-lite performance cooling system and help the car better fit in at the high-performance stops we have planned for the tour. read more…

2012 May 24

Flex-a-lite fan controllers are much more than just a relay for your electric fans. They turn the electric fans on and off, most of them provide the ability to adjust the temperature at which the fans turn on and almost all of them take the place of relays that other brands of fans require.

Many of our Flex-a-lite electric fans include a Flex-a-lite fan controller already, but the fans are also available without any controls.

Here’s a breakdown of what each of our controllers do so you can choose the one that’s best for you… read more…

Flex-a-lite Makes Engine-swaps in ’64-’69 Mustangs Easier with its New Aluminum Radiator Configuration

We’ve offered the Flex-a-fit® aluminum radiator for both ’64-’66 and ’67-’69 Mustangs for quite some time. We’ve now expanded this line of direct-fit radiators to accommodate the popular 5.0-liter engine swaps (based on the ‘86-’93 5.0-liter engines).

The original Flex-a-fit radiator for this application positioned both the inlet and outlet on the passenger side, just like the original. However, many people swap later-model engine into these popular pony car which requires the outlet to be on the driver side. The Flex-a-fit radiators are available both with and without a Flex-a-lite 3,000 cfm electric fan (part #160) pre-mounted from the factory. read more…

How and When to Use an Auxiliary Electric Fan

2012 March 22
by admin

Is your car running a little hot in traffic or when you’re moving slow? Is your truck or RV running hot when you are towing up a hill during the hot summer months?? Consider adding an auxiliary electric fan to help your primary cooling system.

At slow speeds or while sitting in traffic, you have very little or no ram air coming through the radiator, and typically, the engine is running at a lower rpm, which means the belt-driven fan isn’t moving much air either. In some applications, this can cause the engine to run hot or overheat because there isn’t enough air moving through the radiator.

Adding an auxiliary electric fan to the front of the radiator can overcome this problem. read more…
