2010 Challenger 6M- Brilliant Black, 426 stroker, Hellcat rear cradle, ZF 3.90 diff, DSS 1 piece
no direct fit setup from be cool, calling Ron Davis and American Muscle
I appreciate it, but I'm not sure I could afford a custom built radiator assembly. I got a quote for $1100 from another vendor, which is probably the reason I'll be going with Cold Case or mushimoto.Be Cool does custom apps. I've used them in the past although not for MOPAR builds. Very high quality though and I can probably dig around for a contact for you if you'd like.
You are right around $1500 or perhaps a bit more with Be Cool depending upon options. That's been my case at least but you get unsurpassed quality and guaranteed fitment.I appreciate it, but I'm not sure I could afford a custom built radiator assembly.

The problem occurs at speed or when in traffic.Do you have a dual fan setup yet ?
I see you have gone thru 2 radiators, and no mention of installing a dual fan set up that I saw.....
When you are in traffic, all you need is more airflow...not more radiator.....
Did I miss something ??
Are you SURE you don't have any exhaust gases getting into the coolant ? I had a similar issue with a 69 pontiac 428 HO in a 76 firebird body..........turned out it had a small head gasket leak....
Entropy custom 2 row.What brand did you go with
If mine was mostly stock I would not be concerned.Been 110 to 115 here in Las Vegas. My coolant temp varies from 201 to 205, oil temp has reached 215. Not really concerned.
The problem occurs at speed or when in traffic.
I doubt I have a head gasket problem based on the compression test and that I just built the engine less than 10k miles ago.
Also if I was having head gasket issues I would have this problem regardless of ambient temps and there would be contamination in the coolant.

The higher the combustion chamber temps the more prone it is to knock due to the CR.
I appreciate the suggestion, but I highly doubt that is the issue.Contamination in the coolant ?? You mean exhaust gases ??
When I had the small head gasket problem the engine had less than 1000 miles on it...the fact that it was just built is irrevelant.....1 small nick in the gasket, and it will leak, brand new or 200k.
And it happened running and in traffic, but mainly when in traffic.
Just trying to relay similar problems and the solution that solved it...........
I appreciate the suggestion, but I highly doubt that is the issue.
The gaskets I used were high quality MLS, and I was extremely careful during assembly.
There would surely be other signs of crankcase gasses venting into the cooling system, such as contamination in the coolant (from exhaust gasses & burned fuel), excessive positive pressure in the cooling system causing coolant to be expelled via the overflow, and lower compression in the compromised cylinder(s).
