the st205 heat exchangers are a nice size too, and not as much bling.

Here is how i did it, note that there is no a/c condenser on the car anymore so it is possible to sit back right infront of the Radiator. The coolant outlets on the heatexchanger fit perfectly with the two holes on either side of the radiator with a little modification. This is a Lightning performance heat exchanger (upgrade for the ford lightning).


Also a small notch needed to be taken out of the hood latch support brace, however it fits great behind it, and you can keep the stock front grill and foglights! This setup works great as well combined with a Centripuppy pump and ST205 intercooler. Better than a FMIC in my opinion...hehe

I know this is a pretty old thread and prefer not starting a new but I recently picked up a Mustang GT500 heat exchanger to use on my ST165 and was wondering what you guys did to make your aftermarket heat exchangers to work with such extremely small amount of space to work with
