with all the overheating going on, i would be much more focused on the nose and tail end of this car, and adding the openings for the coolers... THAT will sell you a lot of product very quickly, if you got that out in time for sema. The rear especially, because it takes the heat burden... and weight... off the front of the car to cool all the coolers. A lot of guys will be able to keep their stock nose, add the rear, and pick up 2 cooling spots for 2 new trans coolers, so they will remove the trans cooler from the front of the car and add an oil cooler there, or simply convert the trans cooler into an oil cooler at the nose. Its a very COST EFFECTIVE way to solve overheating very quickly and something most people could easily do at home.

The rear alone can solve 90% of peoples overheating issues, and leave their noses stock.

The rear should be a much less expensive part to supply. Very easy to add a couple rectangle cut outs and put a vent/screen over each, for the coolers to sit behind

These cars are too wide as it is

As for my hope. I want to do the Gspeed cooling mod. I think the nose must be addressed.i do not care for gspeeds nose or LGs nose so this is exciting, but also agree if some of the cooling can be addressed at the rear of the car would be good as well.

My car has been at SEMA the last 2 years as well as on the front row of the Optima group pic for the OUSCI and I expect it will be again this year. If you need a guinea pig let me know.
