I have quite a relationship with the search function.. but I could not find anything on this.

I’ve read running a HX along with a low mount isn’t really beneficial. BUT, what about removing the passenger brake duct and fabbing a bracket to mount a small HX similar to the new ZL1?

i was going to run a cwa400 necked down to 3/4. I don’t think flow or pressure would be an issue but I’m sure someone with more knowledge can chime in.

Interesting idea—I looked into it, but the core had to be a one off custom unit for the correct fitment and I’m not sure the juice was worth the squeeze. Someone like Random would be needed for the scientific documentation though if this materialized.

I ended up moving my power steering cooler into this location, but off angle at a compromise to keep the fog light. How well this works I have no idea as the car does not see the road course. I also have my EMP stuffed into that same location, up in that passenger pocket, so plumbing would get interesting trying to fit all of that stuff into one area.

I do have to mention the fog light would most likely need to be removed to get the HX to sit flush and you’ll need the larger carbon fiber pockets for this to work.

If I continue to mess with this platform I might revisit the idea but interested to see if you move forward on this idea.

I’ve started looking into possibly using a small remote radiator. They use them in small sprint cars as well as other Motorsports. Or maybe an oil cooler? Something about 9” I could get to fit

Yup, I had this idea with the power steering cooler, but like I mentioned I did not care much about the placement of it.

I’d love to have a HX unit sit flush, edge-to-edge, and be plumbed back into my 16an setup.

I noticed some coolers might work but they will choke flow pretty bad as some are intended for oil and not coolant…
