    Question Strainer plumbing

    I have a Question about plumbing my groco strainer with an after market intercooler. Now i have it mounted in the front of the engine near the oil fill. This location is perfect for the stock intercooler as it is located right next to it. It is also easily accessible to clean out. I clean it out daily and there is uaually debris in it so it needs to be accessible.

    Some of the other locations i have seen are not that accessible with the seat cowiling installed or look to be secured poorly.

    I guess my question is would it have a negative effect on cooling or performance if i leave the strainer where it is and run the hose from the back to the front. i think it would be adding about 6-7 feet of rubber hose to the system

    You're right, my mistake, I was thinking of a how my conversion ski has one line for both circuits. But failed to remember that the conversion ski has no thermostat

    I think there are no negative effect on cooling or performance if you leave the strainer. But when plumbing your cooler, just take it carefully to make your plumbing work properly done. This must be always with proper care.
