    Rear mounted radiator in pickup truck-NHRA legal?

    I am planning to run a rear-mounted radiator in my other turbocharged truck project. This will be a street/strip only truck, not building it for a particular class, just to run on test and tunes and whatnot. Does anyone know if this will typically pass tech? Fwiw, I will be plumbing with nhra certified -16 hose.

    I have seen trucks built in the past run these, but I am curious about this.

    I've seen trucks like that at Gateway. If Big Al passes them, they are probably ok anywhere.

    That's good to know, that is where I would be running it. I read in my NHRA rulebook, under general regulations, that the radiator must be mounted in stock location, this is why I was concerned.

    e mail your div tech guy, and tell him what you plan on doing and see what he has to say, I have asked our div 6 tech guy many, and many questions, and he has always helped me alone the way
