    Center Radiator in the first GT3 MK1?

    Colleagues,

    My September 1999 GT3 MK1 does not have a center radiator, is this normaal?

    Some literature claims the first GT3 MK1 have a center radiator.

    Thanks,

    Rene'

    All the first gen GT3s had a central radiator, but it had a smaller cross-section than the later models, so you may just not be able to see it as easily as you might expect to.

    Fritz,

    I am sure there is no central radiator, they even installed a plastic cover in the center.

    What would be the reason to remove it,  if it officialy is suppossed to be there, any idea, should I go to the garage and get one installed?

    check out this parts catalogue

    http://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/originalparts/de/D_GT3_KATALOG.pdf

    You'll see a middle radiator at page 42 of the pdf  with part numbers and other details.

    There is no good reason for removing the center radiator from the car, especially in your hot climate.

    I would guess that the center radiator got damaged at some time in the past and the owner reduced the cost of the repair by not replacing it? Smiley

    I agree because the parts catalogue doesn't mention this radiator as optional or market related and also even the X51 Carreras of the time had this third radiator.

    Fritz and Riginos,

    Thanks for the feedback, I will discuss with the local Porsche garage to get one installed. Fritz as you said in Oman you need it.
