What radiator is that? Any cooling issues? It looks tiny.

Just a 60mm thick aftermarket one for a honda integra/civic. on the track it used to get a little hot towards the end of a session, but I have now done a coolant re-route and its fine.

When I shaved and tucked the bay on my rabbit I plugged everything that wasn't needed. If you are thinking of shaving the bay make sure that you try to use the least possible amount of bondo because when the bay does a little twisting or anything the bondo will crack.

I yanked mine when I realized that if I couldn't roll with the top down, I wouldn't want to drive the turbo car to begin with.
