Yes, just like the rapido intercooler, but, I am a fan of the shortest way to pipe the intercooler from the turbo and to the intake, I don't like the long pipes and lots of curves. But again that is just me.

I actually agree with you, so I should add that ideally, you could do this by going through the inner fenders behind the headlamps (as the pic above seems to depict), with a rotated intake, and the turbo outlet clocked to face downwards. By doing these things, you can keep the pipes pretty short. This method would also keep the charge pipes AND the core in the coolest possible locations.

There are plenty of ways to skin this cat, and much depends on your power goals, how much you want to deviate from stock, and so on.

Excellent, that puts us in at the minimum buy. Is this the best place to get ahold of you and update you?

I like how this radiator is made, my shorty radiator is having problems keeping it's cool.

I'll take one!

Radiators are a go as soon as I give the final confirmation for fitment (Just missing the frame to radiator isolators, Russ should have them on the way here mid-week). First run will only be of about 20 units, thus far 11 are spoken for. The rest who don't get in on this group buy action for the discounted price, will still be able to buy the rest at a later time at full price. Get in on the reservations before it's too late!

List is up to 12! That 20 is already running thin, get your name on the list and reserve a radiator before it's too late

It looks great. I also prefer a full size radiator so I'll definitely take one. Count me in. Thanks.

List is now up to 17! Speak up now if you want in, the first 20 are already almost spoken for! Gave the greenlight to go ahead and send out for initial production last night, now it's just a waiting game for the radiators. Good luck to any on the list, here's hoping everything comes back the same as my sample.

In other news, I'm now working on bringing an aluminum coolant tank to market as well. Stay tuned for more on that project!

I am happy to hear that, my poor quality home made style aluminum coolant tank needs to be replaced. I just order "The sphere",the coolant tank from a VW Jetta, they work good, but I will love to have a nice aluminum tank instead. So I will be waiting on this tanks of you, Thank you.

How long until the order is placed? I'm about to get an XR4ti to go with my Scorpio!

They are being made now, can just add you to the list and let you know when to go pay. I've been told to expect them sometime in December.

Not a big deal, there should be another run at some point that will be available to whoever wants 'em, it'll just cost you a little more.
