Default 600x300x73 (~24x12") core, LIKE A BOSS

It fits, just:



Had to remove the air conditioning mounting points with a cut off disc to bring it forward/high enough:



I don't know why I bothered, but making stuff like this fit is half the fun.

Cheers

Otherwise its pointless.

A big snail may come later, for now it is going to be a nice solid 200-220whp setup.

This is my dedicated track car and being in Australia I attend circuits where the ambient temperature gets crazy high. My old setup had bad heat soak which has lead me to go overkill this time around.

Are you going to do anything about the beam blocking off almost half of it?
Also keep in mind that you're taking lots of flow away from the rad.
I think you need tons and tons of shrouding to keep the heat exchangers happy.

Wow, good work fitting that, but I don't think it'll be anymore efficient as a 28x7 and definitely won't be stunning from the front since the bumper covers it all up.

my car started running hotter when i installed a larger intercooler even with shrouding. im guessing because most of the air passing through the rad goes through the intercooler first and is now hotter than ambient.

You'll overheat the car with a IC that big. I guarantee it.

+1. There's absolutely no way that car will stay cool. At 350whp I am using a 600hp Precision core (31x8x3.5 overall), and the upper half of the radiator is fed fresh air. CLTs are <200*F no matter what. I have tried to feed the radiator with nothing but air from the IC and it does not work at all.

its heavy but having a tube front end makes up for it, and gives better air flow because I dont have all the crash stuff in the way.
