Corvette’s have long had issues with staying cool on track even in stock trim. It isn’t uncommon to see water temps north of 230 and oil temps in the 300 range in the summer months on track. This does nothing to help the life of your engine and will quickly lead to failures.
Upgraded radiators can only do so much to help, but for many that is all the market had to offer the home mechanic working on their own car.
The WAIT IS OVER!
GSpeed has long been doing a number of upgraded cooling kits for our customers here in Texas and we have now made a kit easy enough for the DIY mechanic at home that needs help keeping their high hp Corvette alive during those 100+ degree days on track.
Over our years of testing we have consistently seen 205-230 degree oil temps using this package on cars ranging from 525 to over 600 whp! You will also see a good reduction in water temps as well since the lower oil temps will help keep the engine overall cooler, so it is a win win!
1 to 1.5 quart oil capacity increase will also aid in the drop of oil temp by having more volume to work with.
System can be done at home in approx 6-8 hrs using hand tools in your garage. Only the removal of the fog lights is required for basic install. **Those factory equipped with oil coolers, this will replace it**
We have the basic kit to include the coolers, duct work, and our own mount kit all the way to a full service kit with hoses, fittings, adapter block and fans if one desires.

GSpeed C6 Corvette Track Spec Cooling
GSpeed is very proud to release their first Track Spec cooling package for the C6 Corvette. In the past if you wanted to flip your radiator for added cooling and aerodynamics you were forced to loose the hood hinges, A/C, and go through a number of welding processes that the home mechanic typically didn’t have the tools to do or if it was a weekend track car, didn’t want to loose the comfort of A/C.
Now we are excited to say, you don’t have to! This kit will offer the at home racer a number of options ranging from the basics up to a full optioned kit with carbon splitter all while retaining the comfort of your A/C system!
The main heart of our kit is using a HUGE 70mm thick radiator built to our specs and high flow brushless fan to allow a major reduction in even the biggest HP road race engines. Add to that, twin port engine oil coolers and you can see the coolest of under hood temps even when on track in the heat of Texas summers.
