Does the front cross member have any impact on the rigidity of the car itself. For example will it effect handling. etc etc..
I am tempted to do something similar to the below.
Cheers ThePass for the photo.
The plan is to run a larger intercooler. Get some aluminium sheeting and create some ducting.
If you look though the mouth of the bumper.. your see pretty much the crossmember & front support blocks a good potion of the oil cooler & rad.
Now.. I feel with the cross member removed (with a thin support bar in place) I can create some ducting from the top potion of the bumper mouth going to the top of the radiator.
see below for my idea.. lol...
