Havent got to that stage yet......

Sport Compact Drag Racing. All Motor class. This year was one by a Honda Civic. First round is Jambo next month :/

I'll pick up an EA computer at the wreckers and figure it out. I worked as a mechanic at Ford Dealerships for 15 years so hopefully with some help, I'll figure it out

Will having a radiator at the back hinder the performance at all, getting all the hot air through it?

It "should" be ok, not ideal but ok...

I've placed it on the cold side of the car (not exhaust side)

just a suggestion are you running this thing in hillclimbs or drags or trackwork

may i suggest getting a radiator from a GTI swift and using that like if you are using it for short runs it should be fine, but i may be wrong not enough room for fans and s**t like that.

Cleaned up under the bonnet today and mounted the radiator plumbing. A lot of the major work is done but all the minor stuff takes time
