The Cobra Advantage:
Cobra is manufactured from copper and brass. Copper has been, and will be for the foreseeable future, the ultimate material for heat tramsfer, long lasting durability, and is repairable if needed.
NOT JUST A LOUVERED FIN. Cobra’s fin is designed for maximim cooling efficiency. There are lovers at each fin crossing. These louvers are computer-designed and manufactured to a precise angle and length. Their location and angle on each fin is designed to eliminate air boundary build-up (a layer of air that insultates fin material from air flow). There are 620,400 of these precise louvers in an average Cobra street rod radiator which accountas for 206.800 air directional changes taking place throughout Cobra’s core area. These air directional changes break-up air flow, creating a scrubbing effect on the fin material, thus eliminating air boundary build-up. These changes may vary, depending upon the application. At Cobra’s fin edge, the copper material is hemmed to double thickness for added strength and durability.
The distance between each tube (Fin Height) is precisely 1/4″. This 1/4″ fin height measurement is unique in that it allows for the additional number of fins and tubes through Cobra’s core area and is manufactured exclusively by Walker. Also, Cobra’s fin height is computer-controlled to give a uniform bond between the tube and the fin area. This uniform bond is essential for maximum heat transfer and strength to withstand vibrations.
Cobra’s fin count is 17 (Z-Series 12), which means there are 17 heat transfer fins in every vertical inch of Cobra’s core surface. This fin count is unmatched in number.
You will also notice that Cobra is considerably thinner than other street rod radiators on the market. Cobra’s unique design requires less cubic inches for maximum cooling efficiency. This allows for additional fan clearance in the engine compartment.
Cobra’s superior design and unsurpassed quality provides a cooling system required for today’s high performance engines.
