    If it wasn't so hard to install I'd do the Flex-a-Lite first and log results but pulling the front clip to install it sucks.

    A fan will be nice on the dyno but will actually block air if you are moving down the road at more than 40mph or so. I would not do a fan.

    It might be good for that, I was not thinking of either of those.

    The Flex-a-Lite is a 45321 and yes it is fanless. To add the fan it would have been another $100.

    So can we assume the cooling upgrades will be beneficial or not really do much for the price?

    I cant send ryan a PM, so ryan can you tell us the model# of the pump you will be using?

    Any upgrade will be better than the stock exchanger. It remains to be seen if removing the stock exchanger all together to a FMIC or changing the stock exchanger and adding a FMIC is better. As you know I am going the route of changing the stock exchanger AND adding the FMIC. So we'll see what my IAT2 do. I am toying with the idea of doing it in steps so I know the benefits of each change. Just don't know if I want to pull off the front clip twice.....

    I see. Can someone PM ryan and get the model# hes using for the IC pump? I'd like to get this stuff ordered and do it myself with the spectre intake and pulley before I go to Jessie.

    When you say "changing the stock exchanger and addaing a FMIC", are you referring to running two heat exchangers? If so, would you stack them? It would certainly add volume to the system.

    I also wondered that. Would there be too much flow interruption with two exchangers? Anyone got ryans email address? I want to stop at summit after work
