Thumbs up VF Engineering Race Water Intercooler for SC Folks

Dudes,

After searching for tons of info, talking to VF, and reading a few reviews and threads, I picked up this fine piece. It looks like they've solved the mounting issue that everyone was talking about, and I was able to keep my front e-fan. Also, the fan isn't even close to contact, as there's about .5-.75" of clearance between this and the fan hub.

Here's the original thread that I referenced:
http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=546247

They've gone about an easier way of mounting it, so you're able to retain the fan, and get rid of the water tank down below. For everyone who hates the clutter of the water tank, it's the sole reason that I did this. You'll also be losing the OE fan ducting as well. Take a gander at the finished product below; much cleaner and easier.

I wonder if this set-up would let you do track days in hot weather without running hot or if hood venting would be needed as well. Looks like a great option for VF guys!
