Eddie the best thing you can do is buy jims cd, I did and it has saved me days of work it covers pretty much everything for a Diablo build, im doing a Countach but a lot of the info still applies best $50 I ever spent.

This is how Lamborghini did it on the Murci.

Forgot to also mention what I found if you go through one radiator then the second instead of splitting them. Obviously the first radiator runs hotter so fans tend to stay on, unless you ran independent triggers for each rad, but u would find the first one would stay on alot more... Either way parallel the radiators like they do oem I feel works the best ;)

That is interesting Leon. Thanks for sharing.
If I don't have time to do it right, when will I have time to do it over?

Hot side of engine ( top pipe usually) split to top of both radiators. Bottom pipe from radiators ( cold side) split, join together back to bottom pipe on motor ( usually thermostat inlet)

Tried passing through one radiator then onto second one in the past and with the heat here in Australia does not work too well if the engine is of a decent size.

Thank you
If you look at my build diary, you can see that I have the brackets done and the radiators attached to them

What I was asking about was how to run the piping and where to connect the intake and outlet lines from the radiators - and I have my trunk in place also

Thanks again!
Peter

Thanks Lambiero and others
Can you please look at my build diary and see how mine are mounted?
Since I have the original fiero body in the rear, there isn't much room to connect these and I would like suggestions on the right/best way to do it

Thank you!!
Peter
