Hey all,
Planning on a water pumper engine swap for my 914, and I see most of the radiator mounts involve cutting the hood or venting air outwards someway involving that. I already have the floor cut for factory A/C (not there any more and don't plan on keeping A/C with the engine swap), and I was curious if I could mount a radiator horizontal, and direct air out of the bottom of the car. I know this will cause lift, but I'm unsure how much it will cause at speed, and if it will actually be an issue? I'd like to maintain as much as my trunk as I possibly can, that's why mounting it 100% horizontally is appealing to me.
Thank you for your critisim,
Francesco
