Cartapex has a really sweet setup- He posted pics in the "other forum" on the build from start to finish, you can search for it.

I got to see it recently at the Pineapple tech day in Portland...

must not understand the whole purpose of v-mount... i once had a guy tell me if i took that corner any faster than 30 i would roll my car....

okay for one how on earth would it force the air under the car?? this is what goes on... your rad and your fmic come together at the ends like so ">" the point facing the rear of the car, what happens is the air is trapped in the v, so what happens all of the air is forced threw the ic and the rad, it can't go around at all just threw and thus cousing colder inlet air temps, and colder eng. temps...

that being said

please post more pics... one way i am looking for the most is when the rad lays flat and the ic abov but not totaly vertical.

um if you have a front mount, and its got even a little ducting the air cant go around either....



with the v mount, think about where the air goes after it leaves the radiator

the v mount is best utalized with fender vents and the hood propred in the rear to allow air to escare as in a race car that is where all the rice boy wanta bees got the look from.

You can also vent the air out of the top of the hood depending on the angle of the IC. Depends on the setup. Thats the way I would do it though.
