    Mine was originally mounted to the stock cooler, the temp was at 210 so I moved it down to the front spoiler. I srcewed it to the spoiler with the bottom four mount holes and then zip tied the top via the hoses. Temps are down to around 190-200 range now. Will post pic when I can, it's not pretty but it got the job done.

    thanks i think i can imagine where you put it but pictures would really help lol... i was thinking in front or behind the intercooler because when i mount the radiator vertical ill problably run 1 or 2 pusher fans, so i wouldn't be able to mount it there

    Depending on space, i used to do this to a few cars. The air exiting the radiators goes down and under the car and also the air passing under the car gives it decent cooling. Granted this is on a n/a car, it may work for you too

    I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

    With the air dam, I wouldn't think that'd get the best flow.

    I can post pics of mine later tonight, it's not pretty either, but it attaches to the front of the air dam, under the fog flight.

    Airdam creates neg pressure behind it causing the air that that goes through te radiator to flow downwards and then under the car. Take the airdam off and you dont get as much cooling because the air would just flow under the car and not get sucked in to the radiator. Physics.
