    Hardcore! Looking forward to the continuation of this project. Have you been able to drive your car at all this year?

    Yeow! That's pretty gutsy to cut in to the front structure like that. It would seem to me that you'd have to reinforce that area in some other way. I'm kind of annoyed when I have parts that don't fit. I think the parts should be made to fit the car rather than fit the car to the parts; in this case, the radiator.

    I have been known to do some gutsy things to my car. The radiator is not a direct fit for the car. I am installing it to gain room in the engine bay.
    But my intake didn't fit right either...

    It has been awhile since I have been on.

    Here is the rad and fans mounted. Hope to have it running in the next week or two.

    That must have been fun putting that in.


    When compared to a FAST 102 which would be better?

    I have no compare info on it. Just did it to be different and it's great for FI when I finally get there.

    I was a lot of cutting and had to cut my hood too
