Yeah, my 92 Civic radiator never had a problem keeping up with my 240 whp. We could probably get away with some tiny radiators.

why not use aftermarket

why not use aftermarket radiators, instead of from a different car.

Some altima people use aftermarket radiators instead of buying oem from different companies and it saves them gas.

I think most aftermarket radiators are rather expensive, and if I can get a smaller radiator for $10 at the junkyard, I'm definately going to go that route.

bunger i think you are

bunger i think you are asking for a lot of dirt/debris/bent fins with a wheelwell mounted heat exchanger...
close to the ground behind or in front of the engine could use the air under the car which is a bit accelerated with less chance of damage

Ohh I agree, I would of course screen the thing off, which is no guarentee that its not going to get punctured, but I was thinking of it as a 2 fold deal. Vent a high pressure area and use that venting to cool the engine. I just need to figure out how to work in a fan for when I'm not moving.
