    Cooler setup in GPR SHO

    Has anyone around here mounted a type 5 in the front storage area in a GPR SHO setup?

    Does it fit?

    Cheers boys.

    Ive mounted a few type 3's above the tank. The type 5 should also fit.

    Cheers mate! Looks like the type 3 fits easy! I will be trying to mount the type 5 more to the front , like what Kselles did on his type 3 setup. Run the 3.5 tanks , water jacketed exit tank to throttle.

    This cooler fits like a glove up front and has provided ample cooling. So far it has been rock solid...I would be highly surprised if I would ever have any bracket failure as a result of how my buddy constructed the bracketry etc. Hopefully this helps, I'll put detailed pics so you can see how the cooler is supported and secured.

    This is the rough construction...you can see the mounting points here. The majority of the weight is basically sitting on a shelf (that unbolts) and is attached to a solid steel tubular frame bolted in front of the tank and then balanced and suspended under the dash area. All secured in stock bolt locations.
