I'm not sure I fully understand the point of the V-mount and hopefully someone can shed some light on it for me?

Is it more efficient with cooling because it allows for shorter pipes, which in turn gives the air less time to warm up before it gets where it needs to go? I've noticed that some cars in this thread have heat extraction vents in the front of the hood and some don't. Does that not play a major part in this design since about half don't have that feature? Do the radiator and the intercooler play off eachother in this setup better than a standard front mount?

Thanks for any and all insight!!

think of it as two different sized tubes. It would take less air to fill up the smaller tube rather than a larger tube. small tube = less piping.

It basically allows you to have a fmic-like ic with short pipes, and the ability to basically fit 2 components (radiator, ic) where there was originally only one (radiator). A heat extraction vent on the hood will certainly help, especially one that's sealed and shrouded like tino's; however, it's not needed - there's no specific heat extraction vent for the stock radiator fwiw.

The dulock V mount intercooler core seems just to small for 600+whp street cars... and the process west had proven to be capable on doing so, but no A/C, so untill we dont get the best from both worlds, IŽll stick with Full race reverse mount setup for the GT35s and gt4088 turbo aka 500+whp stis.! period! (street cars with a/C)

It’s less piping from the engine to the turbo so it should make for a faster spooling setup. It also makes his intercooler piping shorter as well and keeps more heat out of the engine bay since it’s under the car and in the flow of on coming air. There are no kits out there for it because of the amount of custom modification to almost everything in the front end to make them work. 10K turbo kits don't sell very well.

Oh and the about the missing X-member fastener. If your talking about the hole that’s not a fastener point. Its a hole in the crossmember but a little rubber plug goes in it. The forward fastener location is hidden in that pic.

Man I am frustrated! I love the looks from a v mount, it seems to give all my goals

-faster spool
-no frustration trying to find an alternator belt and enough hood clearance when reversing the big cossy intake manifold..using the full race kit
-600 whp.

ARC/pwer enterprises/dulock seems to have a very small core!

Damit! i have shaved the alt so much!! and now I have to shave the hood skeleton, I am also worried with max power ouput, this baby has to yield 600 WHP on a mustang dyno!! and the tiny full race reversed intercooler (compared to aps) might not be that much

I dont know why full race made a kit on wich it is somewhat hard to get the piping to the throttle bodie and the turbo oulet pipe has to go to the fender instead of left size of the engine by the power steering to save a lot.

The best is always "custom" that`s what big power and show uses

Are you saying the V1 is not efficient on a street car?
