Anybody running a half radiator, street car?

I want to run my turbo behind the front bumper and a full sized radiator wont allow that. This is a street car but not a DD. I saw a honda radiator on ebay that would work perfectly. Anybody have experience with htis and any possible overheating?

I buddy of mine has a similarity sized radiator in his fox and no way no how you can drive it on the street for very long without it getting hot.


Why not just do a "normal" turbo set up, keep a full sized radiator and a hood???

I saw a mustang once that had the turbo mounted right in the middle and a small radiator mounted on each side. Could try that

TWIN TURBO!! Because bottles are for babies and superchargers blow

I will prob lay my radiator flat with a scoop or run 2 small radiators. I dont want a hood. I like the cooler temps and the GREATLY reduced front end lift.
