2014 Shelby Competition Heat Exchanger Install.

Yesterday I got busy and installed the competition HE with the help of a friend on my 2014 Shelby. Here in Fla with ambient temp in the 90's the IAT2 temps @ cruise were 135 as read on my Aeroforce interceptor gauge.

 

In traffic I've seen it climb to 145+. The stock unit is adequate while your moving but doesn't cool enough while your stopped.

 

The competition unit cooled the temps on the average of 20 to 30 degrees and IMO is one of the best mods you can do to combat heat soak. Todays ambient was 83 and the IAT2 never climbed above 120, car was heat soaked and in traffic. At night ambient temps were around 55 and the IAT2 @ cruise was 93. This baby work's. There is some trimming involved with the plastic air directors that sit on the left and right side, other than that its a straight forward install.

I do miss Florida!

 

I was stationed at Eglin (2 years ago) before I PCS'd to Germany.

 

Thought your background scenery looked familiar! LOL

 

Beautiful Shelby, really liking the mod!!!

 

If I ever find myself in your neck of the woods again (and I'm hoping I do), I'll shoot you a line.

 

Thx!

^^^^^^Nice!! I also live in Florida (Lakeland), and will be taking on this install with my 2008 at some point in the future.

 

For anyone who is interested........Below are views of the regular (non-Competition Shelby/C&R H/E) and the larger Competition unit. There is quite a difference..............

Thanks guys, The Competition Unit really moves some air.. I was really surprised at how quiet the 11 inch fans are on this unit compared to the original CR unit i had pref on my 2010. The 5.4 and 5.8 really benefit from the cooling where it matters most IAT2 temps in traffic or at the strip.

'

Next up will be 1/78 ARH Longtubes to help the Trinity breath better. Stay tuned.

Mine came that way from Shelby performance parts through the guys @ C&R racing, my wife surprised me with it for my birthday. :) You can get them from C&R racing not stenciled and or Shelby Parts with the stencil or Van Collier @ Revan Racing. Van may be your best bet as he does his best to give you the most bang for the buck... I highly recommend him.

You are correct Isquared... this install thread is of the original 2014 OEM H/E and modding to the the Competition unit.

 

Robert was just showing the difference between the original version of the Shelby (C&R) HE and the newer Competition Unit. Hope this clears it up.

I noticed a big difference when I did the heat exchanger on my car as well. My only regret is I did not do the radiator upgrade at the same time. Did you get the larger reservoir for the HE? That helps as well and is cheap/easy install.

I''l probably go with the aluminum tanks.. at least thats the plan for now... Unless Roush comes out with the larger tanks for the 13/14. With the 170 T stat the OEM coolant temps are running 176 and is doing a good job, but it would be nice to install the Shelby (C&R) rad a bit later. For now I'm working twords long tubes and some minor suspension upgrades and tire's. Should be doing a ARH long tube thread in the coming weeks.
