    No heat problems here and I make pretty good power.
    Of course, it's just an old 3V.....

    I’d be one of the first to plunk down the ole fantastic plastic for one if it ever comes to fruition

    I'm also running billet tanks (from Van), and agree with Ohio Snake, that they're primarily cosmetic. In my experience, the Intercooler tank was marginally larger than OEM (by about a pint), and the main coolant tank was about the same capacity as OEM.

    I went to the DOB facebook page and asked if the GT500 cooling upgrades were going to make it to market. The reply was, "Soon."

    I've run my 14 in OT sessions in Texas in March. These were 20 minute sessions. Temps were in the lower 80s. I am basically stock on the motor, blower, pulley, etc. Never had a problem with pulling power I could determine. I did have the clutch get soft one session in the early afternoon. Otherwise, ran great.

    Also, I do NOT have track pack coolers.

    To be clear, is the C&R radiator an upgraded unit for the '13-'14 model years?

    Yeah, I have seen that and my take was that the application was correct but I am still unsure if it has better cooling capacity than the OEM unit.

    Do you track your car? I’m more interested in HPDE than the strip.

    Would a larger inter cooler coolant reservoir help OP to assist keeping blower temps down at not that much of an expense ?
