Volvo 200 Series V-8 Radiator for V8 engine swapVOL-122
Why You Might Need One. The radiator from a 1986-1988 Chevrolet Corvette (GM Part #52453612), was our preferred radiator for a Volvo 200 Series V8 swap. Unfortunately, it is no longer available, but we offer a Modine aftermarket radiator that is every bit as good as the original
We prefer the Corvette/Modine radiator for the following reasons
- Lightweight. About 10 pounds.
- Very efficient. The core is 1-3/8" thick and it has about 18 fins per inch. The thin core design provides more room for a cooling fan.
- It has nearly the same dimensions as the Volvo diesel and V-6 radiators, but the outlets are for the Chevrolet V-8.
Reference Material for Installation. The Corvette/Modine radiator will fit in the Volvo 200 Series with a few simple brackets and some minor metal trimming, which are shown in the Volvo 200 Series V-8 Conversion Manual.
