|Understood. Thats why I went for the 450x300x76mm size rather than the |
600x300x76mm size I had. I also plan to put an alloy shroud in to force air
from the front bumper area into the intercooler and radiator. As the
intercooler doesn't completely block the radiator, I figure the radiator
should also be receiving sufficient air flow (and will have genuine davies
craig 12" fans behind it to assist at low speeds).
I wasn't trying to take a dig at you, in case thats how it was interpreted,
merely trying to get your opinion on my setup.
