And did you just attach them to the intercooler? Did it make a noticeable difference at stop lights? And slow no air movement traffic?

put them through the ac condensor. I think it helped a bit. I also did a vented hood at that time also I think, which def helped.

Ya I've done the track spec triple vent to the hood it helped some but not enough at dead still. The fans I already have are pullers so I'd have to either buy pushers of put then on the back of the intercooler

I spoke with Don meziere very nice guy. He thinks the issue is probably more to do with recirculating the hot air than actual water flow. So I'm considering a second or radiator in the rear or moving my current radiator back there.

What is your radiator setup? Just curious. I am currently pulling through this monster and 3" core..

I called D3 today regarding the direction I want to go with my radiator/spal setup and they told me that their fans are not brushless. Just wanted to clarify.

I don't think a fan set up is going to help those spal fans I have move a ton of air and we have a good shroud.
I know this sounds silly and I think we have talked about it in the past, but have you tried running distilled water and water wetter? I was hitting around 243-245 in boost and around 230 at 80mph cruising on a 100* day. After doing the full flush, adding 100% distilled water and adding two bottles of water wetter, the highest I have seen after a hit is 215 and heat dissipates super fast now.

Yes it's pure distilled water and water wetter. The more testing I've done this evening I've found that I don't believe increased water flow will help. I think I need to figure out how to get more air to the radiator for it to be able to dissipate the heat. I really think relocating it is the best option. Still considering adding fans in between condenser and intercooler. I just don't know if I want to cut the rest of the cross member out to get it in there.

Im guessing you also run a 160 thermo also?

Yes I do. If it's 70 out I don't have any issues but here in Oklahoma we see 90+ more than anything.

Oh hey buddy! Looking for solutions I think remote mounting that radiator is the best option

you can move the intercooler in front of the bumper to remove the restriction of air flow to the radiator, there is a thread that has it done somewhere. You can get a set of brushless fans from dewitts.

Look near the bottom of this thread.
