overdone? because they work and are virtually maintenance free, unlike WTA systems

Overdone as in they are very common, I would rather have something less common and with less piping

If you get around to doing a front-mount, check my first build thread (blue car) 'cause I did one using a Saab IC from a 97. Fits really well with super-minimal cutting and I used the stock intake, mainly because I sold the side-feed I had.

Aside from that, adding a slim fan to the WTA's radiator can help a metric ass-ton from what I've seen; anything to help keep these cars cool is a good thing.

Lose the hood. :evil:

How much for one of those fancy braided drain lines?

i was just trying to save you from headaches down the road but ok.

i thought this was the purpose of build threads, not only to show off your own work but to get other people's opinions' on the subject that you post about. if someone told me i was doing something that didn't make sense to them i would want them to post and ask why i am doing such a thing. then i would explain why i am doing it and take their advice into consideration.

i don't consider someone asking why you do a certain thing going off topic but ok i will edit too

if you don't want other people's opinions, don't post on a forum...

Wakkjobb: I am already running two st165 heat exchangers with a 7 " fan and the constant run mod. I can have the oil drain lines made for around $130.00 plus your hard line and oil pan fitting as cores.

Brutekiller787: I welcome other peoples input, I just don't want a full blown debate on my build thread, at some point I may go ata, but for now and the seeable future I will be using WTA.
