You could run a smaller A/C condenser from a Honda, you'd just need custom lines big deal and not that expensive. Hood clearance may be an issue.

On that note, my SVX ps pump pulley barely hits the hood. I'm running a cf hood, so its clearancing its self.

For auto-x, get a front LSD before you even start! On my brief initial pass, I lit the inside front tire on the first turn.....nice and smokey!

My 96L trans took a pretty hard 1-2 shift with no issues. I thought the trans would be the weak link, as it turned out, it was the rear diff!

About the radiator, If your going to race the car and have the engine in and out quite a bit, IMO, cut the top out of the rad support and make it a bolt in piece. If your running on the street, put the custom rad in first and protect it with a piece of masonite or thick cardboard. Otherwise, you'll pull your hair out trying to get it in there. Been there done that!
my friend blew the rear diff on his 95L dragging it, his was a turbo car..

guess ill be replacing mine when i boost it again
