most of us that go remote mount are using an m90 vs the ease of direct mounting the m62. i will have a build thread starting shortly on remote mounting an m90 for my drift whore.

i also run a mid mount.... but i tilted my rad back a little and am running a honda 2 core half rad (joys of owning a ca18). never had a heating problem including last week drifting on a 95 degree humid day. and yes my setup (smaller ic and lots shorter piping) netted me almost 200 rpms quicker spool
