    i'm wanting to get some cooling for my intercoolers, considered spray but i got some heavy duty fans dropped on my lap /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif and i want to use them

    anybody got tips for mounting? my a6 has the s4 biturbo motor with lower ducting for the intercoolers

    i'm wondering cos there is a viscous fan mounted on the back of my radiator and an electric on the front, got me thinking would it be better to mount the fan on the front or back of the intercooler

    anyone got any experience of this my mate says a guy with a g40 had some mounted behind, and a mechanic with an rs turbo had them mounted on front, both intercoolers were front mounted

    my intercoolers face forward but are not mounted in front of everything..

    fans suck or blow, the blades are different, power one up and see then if the fans blows stick them on the front if they suck stick them on the back sorted /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
