Got any pics Kev of the hose you are on abaout and the ideas for improving cooling?????
Come on, play nice and share.
nothing much to share mate, seems it's me that's slow to get on the right page
i didn't realise that the 45deg angle was standard on some suds and seemingly on sprints?
thought that you guys had had them altered to suit the 45deg bend. i was then thinking that if i'm gonna pay someone to alter a rad to do that then getting an alloy one built would make more sense rather than shell out on a standard rad
so the hunt begins for a sud/sprint rad with the 45deg bend.
so i can follow your lead ade
the extra cooling i was thinking of involved chopping the whole front panel off a few inches below where the lights/grille sits, like BLS have done with the 33 race car.
then my veloce bumper would cover it all up to look "normal" but with plenty of openings would allow loads of fresh air to get around the 145 rad.
think that i have at last got it sussed though, 45deg rad (as they will now be known
) i already have a few 33 16V bottom hoses to use to make the bends from the col collection of lats week, so with a couple of 32mm OD joiners it should all be fine
pics below of the differences between what i assumed all sud rads were and the 45deg rad
