Just my opinion, even with that radiator, you'll need a good set of fans if you're halfway serious about the sideways buttsecktsing.

M2, I was looking more at your link and I noticed they do shock dyno for only $10.00 per shock!!

I have the Mishimoto and stock fans and can't get the temp needle to climb past the point where the thermostat opens. The stock radiator was worthless down here in the summer if you were on the track or even for 20 minutes in a blazing hot parking lot with the air on.

One of the sponsors on this site had a sale going last week that included Mishimoto. It might still be on at Turbochargers.com. Support our sponsors.

The 52mm Mishimoto must hold two and a half times as much coolant as stock. So nice. It should be quite adequate for even the most aggressive buttsexing. I bet you could buttsex like a rabid ape and barely get your water hot. I don't buttsex, but I understand that buttsexing is a grueling and torturing activity for all of your parts. If there is a weakness, buttsexing will find it.

A lot of people on this forum are opposed to buttsexing, but I understand that it takes a lot of practice to be a top notch buttsexer, especially to do it in front of bleachers full of people watching.


Edit: What happened to my post?

Yes:


There's a lot of interesting parts at those circle track shops. It would be nice to figure out if any of the shocks would work given the prices.

I've recommend the use eBay nascar stuff more than once. It's all high dollar stuff at high discounts - and good quality. How wide is the max opening up there? I thought it was only 29"...

Yeah 32" is doing to take up a lot of room. I'll make it work or be able to sell it for what I have in it for sure. It will be super sweet if I'm able to use the oil cooler as well. Can't wait to get it in there and some lines made for it.

Lookin really really big. The guy fudged his number on and I'm not sure I can make this thing fit. It is massive, 4 inches doesn't seem very big(hold the jokes) but could quite possibly be unnecessary. It measures top - 32" bottom 30" ht. - 20" thick - 4". The height is what is really killing me, I'll look at it some more tomorrow, but looks like I should by a griffin. It would have been sweet to have this one with the oil cooler and all.

I missed the 4" thick part - that's too thick IMO. But I think it would still fit with some slim fans. AAMOF I've got a 16" 2700cfm spal slim fan I'm ready to sell. I think the width is going to be the real obstacle.

I agree on 4" being to think I thought is was 3". Let me know about that fan though, it is the type I was planning to run.
