Cooling Mod....just add Dremel.

Needed to get some more air to the radiator, tranny cooler and intercooler, so a buddy of mine came up with an idea to do something other than drilling some holes. We did take a 2" hole saw and cut a series of seven holes in the front bumper support to help let in as much cool air as possible. Taped off an area, cut and sanded with a dremel, then rattle canned the inside of the bumper and the support flat black. Car seemed to run consistently cooler, and cooled down alot faster between runs at the track. We also repositoned the intercooler and tranny cooler further down.

Here's some pics...
















While I was taking the pics, my two year old little boy decided he wanted to suit up, and take the car for a spin...

ive thought about doing the same also ....

with the hellion kit how much did you move the intercooler down.... i was afriad the intercooler pipe wouldnt have enough room to move .

the fix for mine is a stalker front bumper with some trimming ....

looks good though!

I'd say it dropped down about 1.5"-2". We dropped it further down on the driver's side than the passenger side.

Nice DirtySanchez
Never knew you were so short .....................


maybe try reinstalling your little air dam / deflector
on the bottom too.
Supposedly they really help push more air up into radiator

The airdam would no longer work since the area it pushes air into it blocked by the i/c bottom and the oil cooler. And there is no place for that air to go, so basically it would just create drag. -Swampdonkey

Might wanna round the edges on those squares... looks abrupt compared to the other holes. Very clean though.
