question on intercooler and trans cooler placement

So I took off the front nose tonight and started goofing around with the intercooler and trans cooler. The ESS intercooler is massive. Literally takes up all the space in front of the rad. I have no way to mount my trucool 40k trans cooler that wont be partially in front of the intercooler. Thoughts? Think that will be ok?

The trans cooler will actually be about 1.5" lower than what the pic shows

Well for anyone doing an ESS blower, the trucool 40k is NOT a good fit lol. That intercooler is massive. Took me all night to fab up mounts and end up having to trim the inside of the front nose a good bit to get it to clear. Only covers the top 5" of the intercooler. Should be good to go

There’s a 2nd BOV right? I remember in El’s thread he had to fab up a 2nd BOV valve since he was pushing a lot of air, and the rinky dink one they included couldn’t do the job.

With the vortech Kris @ jannetty said it wasnt needed. Once I go bigger on the blower, I'll need one
