Same function lol.

We've had some great results slapping fans onto intercoolers, especially top mounts.

Moar crappy pics of slow progress. Pieces for the "box" are not final, and merely for mockup purposes.

Plan is as follows:
- "scoop' air from 8 inches or so, behind the exhaust
- Exhaust will be ceramic coated
- Center fan will run 100% of the time (however, it'll be on a time-delay relay so it won't come on for ~1 minute after startup)
- Other fans will come on when water temp exceeds a set temp (t-stat adjustable from 32 to 190F)
- New floor pan will mate up to and seal bumper
- Air will vent through rear grill

Drilled the bolt holes out, then touched up paint on the (diff) flange and painted the DS flanges/joints for rust prevention

You should put some speed holes in the rear bumper to let air exit out after going through the rad

No progress on Air to Water, but I did pick up 3" V-bands for exhaust. Redoing downpipe to cat-back, then the "cat-back" to mufflers will get welded, and mufflers will be on v-bands. This will be interesting, as I've never done v-bands before, and the nice thing about traditional clamps is you can adjust everything to where it needs to be...just have to get flanges on correctly.

Rear bumper setup is very stealth, way to go!

Trying to get some wheels boughten...if not, I'll probably end up with some Enkei PF01s. Not ideal, but I can't swing the CE28N's right now and I need tires, so I want to get rid of the heavy factory wheels.

More garbage factory parts thrown out.
