Default Those who moved radiator up and vertical.... in here

Just a few questions about this set up a lot of you guys run. It seems to be great for turbo set ups clearing for a lot of extra room that is definitely needed in our cars. So if someone could list whats all involved in doing this, that would be greatly appreciated. Obviously a different radiator is needed, which seems to be a good fit without having to weld on a bunch of fittings, etc? Also what all else is needed (Coolant lines, brackets, etc)? Some detailed pictures would be nice as well. Thanks!

Hey BC, that looks pretty nice man. What kind of fans are those? And is your kit a front mount? Just wondering if the turbo is too close to the fans? Have you experienced any heat issues?

Preciate it!! Theres the fans and radiator I got from Summit!! Yea its a front mount and the turbo is a good bit away from the fans! I have a heat sheild on the hot side that is pretty close but nowhere near touching!! Im in the middle of putting a new stand alone system in it so cant give much more info right now but before the fans didnt get really hot much!! Those fans pull air like a ****!! Hell they'l hold a peice of cardboard on the front mount when you turn them on!!! Heres a shot of the turbo!

SO by the looks of it everything sits in there just perfect, how are the temps?? I want to do this to my daily driver how do you think it will cool???

I wonder if Griffin could add a 6an bung and a Coolant sensor spot on the passenger side of the rad???

No prob.!!

Yea they should be able to do that!! I had a cooling problem but that was cause my lower stainless hose was leaking out my coolant! Ha! But when I got it to stop it kept the temps down real good!! And at idle the air temp comming out of the charge pipe from the intercooler was a crap load cooler than the temp outside!!! So I would'nt think you would have a problem with them at all!!

I didnt want to see anything so I made some brackets to slide on the sides of the radiator and bolt to the front support! The first pick is the two brackets, the second is the foam used inside the channel and the third is hard to see but its on there!! I hate wires so there all hidden everywhere!! LOL Preciate!!
