C5 Corvette (Short)
This group of radiators feature a shortened core for blower clearance.
This new high performance Direct Fit® aluminum radiator features two rows of 1" cooling tubes, doubling the cooling capacity of the factory single row. The press formed aluminum end tanks are TIG-welded to the core, eliminating failures due to cracked plastic end tanks and/or gasket leaks.

2001-2004 C5's have the Electronic Brake Control Module (ECBM) located below the upper radiator hose. This creates minimal clearance between the hose and the brake lines. The original equipment upper radiator hose (GM PART # 10229479) has a riser to create clearance. A direct replacement hose is a Gates 22404. Both hoses are molded to fit the stock radiator inlet OD of 1.32" and the DeWitts inlet at 1.375" OD. The larger diameter DeWitts inlet will not accommodate the original equipment hose clamp without modification.

We completely re-designed our C5 fan package to utilize a lazer cut aluminum shroud. The shroud incorporates (4) four rubber flapper valves to improve air flow at high speeds and close at slower speeds. Two SPAL 12" high performance fan provide 3200 CFM, which doubles the factory output. What makes this really cool is DeWitts customized the fans with matching Corvette fan plugs, so no cutting or splicing is required.
