I can't really tell from the pictures, but does the intake mount to the radiator at all? I'm assuming something is holding the radiator in place...

Do you guys have some Q for me i will tell you what i can.

Looks like a good design and execution ... beta testing will be fun!

These OTR inlets are definitely the way to go. Keep testing it and post the results!

How easy/Difficult to tilt the radiator? 2 -10 mm screws to remove and the radiator moves for you not hard at all this install was lees than 15 min in all.

Yes all was in the box and some extra small screws for the MAP senser and 2 hose clamps and all hoses for the unit.

Looks like that sucker is glued shut. No prying eyes, eh? Outside is ugly as hell, but I'm sure it's very functional and gets the job done. I can live with that.

That thing looks huge! But I like the design.
Do you think it would work with a S/C?

and have you tried fitting it with the engine cover?
