Bmw 2002 Turbo Radiator

Recommended Posts

A few years back there was a gentlemen on this website who offered services to recore 2002 copper radiators. He would convert a 2 core radiator to a 3 core. The benefits of this are great for my restoration and maintaining originality with invisible performance upgrades. I have lost his contact information. Anyone out there who can help? Thanks.

The radiator you refer to was made by the Silicon Garage out in California; unfortunately the proprietor, Kurt Ingraham passed away almost two years ago, and the person that took over the company seems to have disappeared.  Those radiators solve overheating problems on 2002s quite handily--I've had one in my air conditioned '73 since 1987 with very good results. 


Suggestion:  find a local radiator shop and ask them if they can obtain and install a RADAC 26 (or current equivalent p/n) core in your stock 02 radiator.    That's a 3 row core that will fit into a 2002 radiator frame, look completely stock from the outside and mate properly with the top and bottom tanks.
