    Those with FMIC, Has anyone thought to make a divider from the top of the bumper beam straight back to the condenser. We know that the FM adds substantial turbulence, just a thought to smooth out the flow. Already added guides to the side to replace the factory plastic that's removed.

    Yeah I was going to post what raider has up there. I dont have any specific data but I ran the one I made at the track last year and it really seemed to help keep engine temps down a bit.

    Nope, i have built that myself, and yes it helps some. I was thinking something mounted to the bumper beam itself with a small gap between the condenser idea.jpg

    either from the top of the fmic or the top of the beam, to possibly get better flow. i might model something this weekend and try both.
    Houston heat, is brutal
