We need to force the air to come up into the nose of the car and then turn and go back down to pass through the condenser and radiator. So I made this piece to extend the core support forward a few inches at the top..

And from underneath..
I'm guessing for weight reduction this car had it's front bumper / vacuum reservoir removed. Kinda scary but nice for airflow..
Did it work by the way Wiz ?
Problems take innovative solutions like your doing to resolve.
Looks like there is room for a Boost fan to push air right onto the AC Condenser at idle in traffic & slow driving speeds.
That CS 130 likes to overheat driving powering electric fans.
Had several burn up on my 87 Corvette.
1 almost caught fire one day I used.
Smoking like a Volcano erupting.
POS CS130 what I think of them.
Pretty easy upgrade is a 2nd Gen CS144. Used On GUNNY RACE CARS LT1 & LT4 Stock. Also used on C4 ZR1 Corvette.
What I put on my 87 Corvette last year.
No more failures.
The 63 Gp I built myself a real nice 1 wire hookup turns on when engine starts charging CS144.
