why would you... drop it off at radius fab and get a quality job for an extra 500 bucks ? 2.5 inch hot side , 3 inch cold if u have a plenum otherwise 2.5 inch both sides
I live In VIC, so fair drive just to get some pipes made up! Lol.

Just looking if someone sold a complete front mount kit, radius, or fatz. For the GUIV with narrow radiator.

Bigger intercooler. Less pipe work. Has anyone actually done any testing with front mount vs top mount on the same vehicle ?

Thinking front mount , so I get more room under bonnet, to fit the fatz airbox, dual battery, catch can, and piranah shower & air compressor. Without the hassle of a large intercooler also.

I figure if it's front mount I only have to worry about squeezing in 2 pipes.

And age old battle top vs front mount, top is prone to heat sink, have to fit fans, they may fail over time. and run a bigger scoop on bonnet than factory. Etc etc. But the Fitting of a front mount might cause the engine to run warmer etc etc.

I guess there's no perfect answer. But top mount definitely seems to be the easier path.

go a front mount but I think there's better value in piecing a kit together yourself and getting a boily to weld it or by just dropping it off somewhere ..

It's the age old battle of myth being converted into fact by word of mouth. I've tried both and a quality tmic crapped over a Chinese fmic. It's been debated in a lot if threads which are worth a read.

I know this thread is a few months old now, but which direction did you end up going? Results?

I've been considering the hpd front mount vs diy/ shop job + a td05 when $ permit or I have too many beers with a credit card within reach.

I ended up with a big front mount and a front entry inlet manifold with 100mm tapering down to 50mm lift.

Pretty happy with it

Any pics of your front mount install and ducting? In particular I'm curious about the routing into the manifold past the p/s pump. I have a GUIII that I'm contemplating doing the same too. Also did the hot side ducting have to go through the wheel arch?

Thanks
