    Schnell Autosports 981 Third Radiator Kit

    Schnell Autosports 981 Third Radiator Kit

    For most 981 Caymans, the stock cooling system is adequate enough for day to day use with the occasional romp on the loud pedal.
    However, if you have a highly modified 981, live in hot climates, or like to take your car out for track days or otherwise extended "fun" driving sessions, you might find your coolant temperatures going up to a level that's too close for comfort.

    The stock radiators are two units located on the left and right side of the car, and by adding an additional 3rd radiator to the center of the bumper, you increase your cooling capacity and ability (as well as extra peace of mind in hot weather).

    Lemon,
    I just completed the center radiator installation and the only tip I would add to your excellent front bumper removal guide is that there are two connectors to disconnect the wiring harnesses (for the fog lights and parking sensors) before removal of the bumper. There is one behind each headlight that is easiest to remove if you remove the front wheel well liners. The connectors are clipped to the back of the headlight support. If you unplug the connectors it makes the removal of the bumper cover and the reinstallation a one man operation and the factory one use zip ties do not have to be cut.

    My 2014 Cayman S has PDK and park assist and the wiring harness connectors may be different for different options but it worked on my car and made the bumper cover easy to remove. Thanks for your great installation guides.

    One other point. The pics on the Schnell site show incorrect radiator position. It's backward. I put a comment on the site to that effect so that future people might see it and not try to force installing the radiator the wrong way (like I did initially). When it's correct, the ridges point forward and there are slots that the cowling snaps into.

    Ledbette,

    I wish I would have seen your post when i was trying to figure out how to install my CSF aluminum aftermarket radiator and confirms the Schnell photo was incorrect. I had to install what I thought was backward with the open part of the “C” lower radiator bracket facing forward. I also had to install the CSF painted logo on the radiator facing backward. With the radiator what I thought at the time as “backwards” the sealing frame and air guide all snapped into place and sealed properly.

    Thanks, Jim
