Trans & PS cooler location input

I just finished building a bracket for my trans and PS coolers to fit between the radiator and fan.
Now that i finished its occured to me that maybe its not a good location for the coolers considering how hot the air out the back of the main radiator is.
I thought i get some thoughts on the matter.
Good idea or not?



Also, anyone think the corrogated tube on the hoses at the edge of the radiator (photo 2) will melt with the temp the core gets to? Its only there for additonal abrasion proctection just incase.

I put mine in front, but I have an electric fan and a lot less clearance on the back side.

I don't think you'll have a problem with the tubing melting. But I'm not an "Expert", I just stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Put them on the front of the main radiator, they will fit behind the plastic outer grille..

Im only putting them at the back because i should be getting an SC soon.

I pulled my fan out to fit the coolers, its the stock electric one.

Mount them on the front of the intercooler when you get the SC setup...

so id have to assume you think its a bad place to mount them between the rad and fan.
You think its going to get too much heat?

Yup - it will also make the fan much less efficient...so you'll get overheating issues...
