Looking for ideas on my Coupe. I am going to chop it in front of strut towers, and redo it. Looking to see what others have done.
This is what I'm looking for.

Car will be a single 82mil turbo 4valve, also wanting to mount the radiator at a angle towards the driver tire to help with putting the turbo towards center, and keep the full size rad. This is a street car.

Why in the hell would someone from south texas need a snow shovel?

Off topic, but snow shovels are excellent for cleaning up saw dust and oil dry. I have one for those purposes.

Anyone have any thoughts on laying the radiator flat or at a serious angle on a streetcar?? I hadn't thought of that yet...I want to put mine at a angle from about 5 inches off center over towards the driver side strut.

Looking forward to seeing how much weight is saved by this, Ive been contemplating something similar with my front end but not quite as extreme.

There is a member over on Hardcore5.0 (Bimini LX) that had a tubular front bumper and used tubing as the lower radiator support and layed the radiator forward between the two. It was a pretty clean install and made room for the turbo set-up, i believe TeamZ did the work but dont quote me on it.

Once you replace the structure for holding the panels etc up i dont think theres a benifit in weight just the room to put shit where you want,the weight savins is in removing the front bumper supports !!!

If you ditched just the front bumper and lower core support, you should be in the neighborhood of dropping about 35lbs. If you cut it back to the Shock Towers then you're probably going to be in the neighborhood of about 65ish I would think after you put the replacement tubing back in. Just a guesstimation.
