My solution

Here is my solution. I have a B6 965 intercooler. I am of the opinion that blocking off air to force it through the intercooler just limits the amount of cooling air available to the engine. I KNOW I am getting a LOT of air through the intercooler with these fans. I have not used a pyrometer, but the low tech hand touch method shows a substantial drop in temperature across the intercooler. I had to make my friends feel it at the last DE, they were amazed. I can also run the fans a few minutes before the next DE session. This pre-cools the intercooler. You know these intercoolers become a big heat sink in between runs. Why start out with a heat penalty? Due to interference when closing the tail, these were the only places that fit. There is no room under my intercooler so they had to go on top. I know it's not beautiful, but it sure is effective.
