Had one in my previous car. I had to exit to the pit when the oil got over 110 degree celsius. So now it is two -> more rounds on the track

Yes but one larger cooler would have half the failure points.

Yes it would But it is easier to install two smaller and have more space arround, out to the fender and down to the ground. If I hit/dent anything or something hits/dents me, I will be more safe with that there is more room around the smaller coolers. With the plasement I am using I would have to angle a large cooler way more than two smaller ones. That way it is easier to make ducting and get better efficiency out of the coolers.
And the plasement I am using is the only space I have room for coolers.

Found a nice place for the coils. Easy access and easy to run ignition cables allong the brace.

Made a bigger hole and boxed in the air filter box a bit. Re routed the wires as well to clean it up.

Bought an IC from Bell, but had to modify it a bit. Better braces and another placement. Moved the IC and radiator several centimeters forward to get some more room in the engine bay. Had to do some cutting and welding to get the IC a bit higher up from the ground. But the end result was way better than the original placement.

I like how you modified the front part of the body for the IC/radiator/airbox. Very nice.

Thanks

It has been time consuming. But it is better to do it nice the first time so you donīt have to redoo anything later on.
