    What size trans cooler you looking at? (I realize bigger is better).  Maybe get a long narrow one and mount it above the intercooler?  Or maybe one on the opposite side where the horns are?  On second look, maybe move the engine oil cooler across to where the horns are and get a deeper one for there?  I know what you mean though, I ended up having to also fit in an electric brake vac pump and reservoir, you start to run out of room real fast.  Great build.

    Also have to relocate the abs but thats simple as im not trying to smooth or shave anything cause theres literally so much motor theres not much point so abs will move to the front of the strut tower engineer had no issues with me doing it as long as i used approved brake line etc

    The VZ ABS I’m using mounts in that position stock so can’t see any reason not to do it, “Approved brake lines” didn’t know there was such thing for hardlines only the flex lines, as long as they’re made from Steel Bundy tubing or Stainless and are double or bubble flared it should pass no probs.

    Haha i took a risk on the cooler and fan its a speedmaster i would generally avoid there products like a bad smell but i cooler is suck a simple item that if it shits out i would be highly supprised cooler itself looks good and its twin core cooler fan on the other hand i possibly wont use it looks cheap lol

    Abs relocation started last night not ideal but the only spot for it but it fits and its out of the way of the manifold now and managed to use existing bracket so its all a win for me im not smoothing the bay out as i have far to much going in in the bay for me to justify it. As for the relays there going under the gaurd i personally dont like the idea but again no room so i have to make the most of the space i have :)
