I'm thinking about going charge cooled and make my own using laminova cores, because diy is fun.
For radiator there seems to be tree options. A more conventional front mounted unit, horizontal stacked with AC condenser and engine radiator, or rear wheel arch mounted.

There are pros and cons with all three, but horizontal stacked with AC condenser and engine radiator is to me the overall most attractive. Main concern is flow limitation to engine radiator.
For such stacked radiator one can either buy off shelf item (have only found one - ProAlloy) or have one fabricated. If taking the custom fabrication route there is also the option to make a combined CC and engine rad unit.

Anyone on here with some good experience on different CC radiator solutions?

From the experience I have witnessed down here in OZ I would put it under the front crash structure - you can channel plenty of air to it and it doesn't get heated by the engine rad ...

This is similar to what Hanger 111 use


Others have used the oil cooler rads and moved the engine to use a laminova cooler on the main water system

Wow, that really is under the crash box. Wonder where the air goes? Maybe a cut out undertray?
