Hipo Radiator?

Is there such a thing for our trucks and are they worth the effort? I know when increasing the HP the heat always goes up to!

The cooling system in these things is so robust there is no need.

Heat does increase, but more so EGT than ECT. I second that these trucks have an excellent cooling system. In fact, IMO, it's one thing that was done right the first time.

The only reason to replace is if the plastic endcap leaks. BPD has a nice all aluminum replacement.

The reason I ask is there is a company who claims 30% more cooling ability over stock

30% doubtful maybe, i think the greatest thing about some of the aftermarket ones would be the all alumn end tanks. I split my OE one at the plastic. Since that is alum it would help in cooling but unless its thicker core, got more surface area (unless they count the end tanks) it may not cool 30% more.

You have never hit a temp high enough to kick the fan on. That's a good thing. Says your truck is running great.
