Hi there,

Check out my website (in sig).
I went that route but decided to go with a front mount.

I had it to the point where the car was running, but I did not have the ducting around the rad.
The main reasons for me to move the rad was the complexity of building the shroud / ducting (I suck at metalwork), and I was really uncomfortable with that big hot radiator directly behind me.

Nevertheless, I still think it can be done from a fabrication standpoint. One important thing to remember is that the air also needs to go out. If the air behing the rad can not get out, all the intake ducts in the world will not be able to cool the motor.

Keep us posted.
