Doh!! I didn't realize it was the same guy! I shoulda paid more attention I guess. I was imagining something where the radiator essentially replaced the engine lid. I've seen that on a couple watercooled buses.

I for one didn't like the idea of having that level of exposure in the rear, and 2 I was hoping to keep it a little more hidden.

The ecotec is pretty long, you may be able to get something in with a Subaru but I doubt it.
