looks like it would be better cooling efficiency but of course not knowing, I could be wrong.

Better cooling and much shorter piping for faster spool.

There has been talk about using Jeep cherokee radiator. Is it the longer in length, shorter in height one ?

this one :



or square ones :



If the first one is used I guess it will not be a v-mount anymore. More like radiator taking the place of regular fmic location.

The second thing is the main thing. You normally wont see huge improvements in engine temps with v-mount vs. a normal fmic setup Overall, the radiator fans normally pull 200 cfm of air, which is more than can be forced through the radiator in either a v-mount or normal radiator setup at speeds under 100mph.

Found this on another forum:
"Since air passing through the intercooler is heated before passing through the radiator; it can cause cooling problems.

The idea is to get direct airflow onto both surfaces.

It also requires a bit of creativity to make sure the pressure zones allow for good airflow. Air will not flow through either if the pressuze zone behind each is greater than in front of the core.

This is why you will always typically see a hood extractor used in conjunction with the V-mount setup. Since that area on the front of the hood and a low pressure zone.

The undertray will also have to be modded in such a fashion to create a good low pressure zone post radiator."

That one. And yeah, its not really a v-mount, more of a way to do a stacked/ high mount intercooler setup. Still would the same kind of benefits as a v-mount I assume.

SO overall, unless its for a competition time attack/ endurance/ rally car, where the car is being pushed for an extended period of time and you want every gain in turbo response and cooling power you can get, its not going to be like a big performance gaining modification. I feel a lot of people that do this, like myself, do it just to make their car look more bad ass, stand out etc. I did it for looks and because I like taking on fab projects like this. It wasn't because I expect to see a drop of 40 degrees in coolant temps as well as lower charge temps. However, if I see such a miraculous improvement, i'll let you guys know!

I would say that v-mounts normally improve turbo spool time (say 200-500rpm quicker).

I have the ff dymanics extreme triple threat but I am having problems the radiator cap is

below the head light and the coolant cross over pipe is way above so I am getting air in

the system when I drive the car I have a element tuning full brand new long block big

valve heads so it is not the engine. Cross flow cools a lot better but I am having problems.

here is my rad http://www.ffdynamics.com/jeepradextb1.html

I have gt35 with coolant header tank all stock rad caps in correct location and rubber

hoses through out. I need to find a breather tank for the radiator?

2 or 2 transmission coolers (2 25 row mocal coolers to keep the 4eat cool for the track)

OMG you are my freaking hero!
Now I just need to figure out how to squeeze this into a GR..

finished my v mount... have cold ac, a huge 2 1/2 gallon radiator, and a 980hp rated intercooler...
I let it idle for 30 minutes last week with outside temperatures of 100+ and the ac on the coolant never went over 185 witch is the thermostat rating

So awesome! You need to come down to cars and coffee in Plano so I can ogle it.

quote from Rexnet in Australia...
"The basis for this build is a 2005 S10 WRC chassis which has an interesting history but has never been driven"


I have spent the last week with her and I can tell you this is a special car...folks stand and stare...the desire to build something similar to this is overwhelming

"The Hulk" will make its debut (hopefully) at the World Time Attack challenge in Sydney Australia next week ( http://www.worldtimeattack.com/ )

Contact Prodrive UK. They sell the chassis and complete vehicles. Last I remember the 22b's and s10 chassis sold for over $80,000.
