Don't be deceived by other Heat Exchanger's and their "double pass" claims to superiority over FLUIDYNE Racing Products 3-core single pass design. Surface area is king when it comes to cooling capacity, and no other heat exchanger on the market gives you the functional surface as FLUIDYNE Racing Products does. Double pass core designs also force you to relocate hoses due to the inlet and outlet having to be on the same side. FLUIDYNE Racing Products design does not require this modification for easier installation.

The latest in cooling technology made available by FLUIDYNE Racing Product. This FLUIDYNE Heat Exchanger is a replacement for the factory Ford heat exchanger in the 1999-04 Lightning F-150 Trucks. The FLUIDYNE Heat Exchanger design is over twice the thickness of the stock unit and has an increased height of 8 3/4” and width of 26 3/8”. Incorporating a cooler, more stable coolant temperature to the intercooler even when the engine is being pushed to it’s limits. This provides more consistent performance on the street and lowers ET times at the strip. Installation time is around 30 minutes and can be accomplished with normal hand tools.
Fluidyne makes a nice product but, the engineering is less than acceptable. One of the brackets broke off the top of the exchanger. Now I must create a mounting bracket to ensure the rest of the mounting screws do not brake off allowing the exchanger to fall off the vehicle. They should devise a mounting system similar to the original exchanger. In fact, with some aluminum stock and the original mounting brackets, I plan on fabricating a more suitable mounting system. Just have to be creative I guess. Too bad the engineers of Fluidyne failed in that area. I would send it back but the unit broke after I discarded the original. Therefore I am stuck dealing with it. I recommend this product only if you are prepared to pick up where Fluidyne dropped the ball and failed...
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Awesome product, high quality and so easy to install (even without instructions). As always, easy to deal with LMR and great service. Highly recommend the Fluidyne heat exchanger!

This is by far the best experience I have ever had buying parts for my mustang. There is no other place for me, then LatemodelResto. I have bought multiple parts over multiple orders and have had nothing but a smile from ear to ear. Aaron Westerman was my contact person from LatemodelResto. I could not ask for a better customer service representative than him! He went above and beyond multiple times for me and made my experience with Latemodel the reason I keep coming back. LatemodelResto will continue being my #1 stop for my Mustang parts.
