Oil Cooler...

Corey had ordered an oil cooler for me, and in the interest of not interfering with any air flow through the intercooler...we decided to mount it laying almost flay and put it under the radiator... This meant we had to build a bracket to hold it and a shroud to direct the air through it...

Here is the finished product... Corey had me build/fabricate it and he did the welding... We are working on my Tig welding skills but heavy steel is quite a bit different than aluminum... so... I'm still a ways from fine welding on aluminum...

The shroud is the top side of the bracket and will direct air down through the oil cooler. The air flow into it is straight from the lower grill and is uninterrupted into the shroud...

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

If you can turn, you ain't going fast enough...
