Quality, Fit and Function.

When looking to purchase a replacement heat exchanger, quality and fit is extremely important. Having to modify your vehicles' front-end structure can reduce structural integrity and lower the value of your car.

The GordsFord Heat Exchanger was designed to fit in the stock location without modification of the factory bumper and retains the angle "L" brace- which is designed to protect the under-carriage and cooling assemblies.

The GordsFord Heat Exchanger utilizes the most open space of any aftermarket heat exchanger. Combine the largest frontal area with an optimal core depth of 2.375", the GordsFord unit attains the largest cooling volume and effectiveness.
