Default I got bored

So I made an oil cooler duct, don't judge my welds! Need to finish welding around the pipes. Then glass bead, and paint. Then I will work on the mounting bracket and run the duct hoses.

Looks like he's planing on running the Pegasus ducting hoses from somewhere else.

It'll pull air from the lip, I think. Or I am going to install NACA ducts in the bumper. I order the duct hose from Pegasus. So I'll have to play around with ducting ideas

Well of course I thought of it, but I'm still undecided on the lip. It's not that complicated to run hoses for the duct. They could be mounted on the splitter I am making as well. I would rather mount the cooler first and run hoses, than mount a cooler for ease of hose duct orientation. Air can be pulled from a lot of places, high pressure areas, in line fans etc. And I don't know if he did or not, there is absolutely no reason why it wouldn't work well. I will post before and after temps.
