Attached are photo's of my new Heat Exchnger design which fills the available area, fits in the stock mounts with my adapter kit, and doesn't require notching the bumper or taking the front end of the car apart. For more info Email me at [email protected]
car is still far from ready.....got to do the cage, trans and rear still.......will be there to support everyone else......i don't want to go break again!!!!!! oh and one thing about surface area....the unit i have is almost 3 times as thick as the original, and if you look under the car the radiator doesn't even use all the area that the bumper cover reveals......the core support is even more narrow than the bumper cover area!.....the gains from moving the exchanger out the 1/2 of a inch on each side wouldn't even be measurable in my humble opinion.....plus the fluidyne is 2 inches taller also.....buy what you want to .........there will be many excellent choices available!
All of these will be a great benefit to cars with lots of boost!!! my point was that the airflow through the unit is only as good as the open area behind the unit.....a unit wider than the radiator core is going to have stagnant airflow through portions of it....due to no room to flow air behind the overlaping areas....just a thought.......hermann
