Being told my radiator / oil cooler setup wont flow properly ...

what do you guys think ?

radiator in the normal spot. Intercooler in front of it. 2 oil coolers laying flat
in front of them, Stock air damn chucked in the trash. car converted from
"bottom feed" to "front feed" by cutting a fat hole where the plate used to
mount and chucking the fogs next to the airdamn (and the stock radiator
ducting for that matter too)

i dont see the problem? big hole catches air while driving forward. air
escapes any way possible. Takes heat with it.

agree / disagree ?

I was told:
Quote:
airflow would go downward through those coolers only if you put an airdamn at the leading edge of the bumper so no air can get under it...
I agree that an air damn would HELP flow, but not having one isnt going to cut off flow for some magical reason.
