Been around for a while. Two versions, raised to allow an oil cooler and standard height. Both can have a tow hook welded on when made or after the fact. These guys make fantastic cages,I just installed my second one.

Engine bay cooling - Boxster Fan Car

I have been looking at Gordon Murrays T50 a lot this past month and also noting (again) how hot the engine bay gets and stays for hours after the fact. This bumper bar looks like it would allow you to hang two small fans a la 911 engine bay and maybe an oil cooler and vent out the back.

Not sure I like loosing the shock absorbers though..... and it is of course way off the impact axis.

Perhaps cooling benefits don't warrant the hassle but grills and fans in the number plate recess is exciting.

One might be better off manually triiigering the bay fan (along with the radiator fans) while driving so you don't come to a rest and cook.

Any issues with running the bay fan and radiator at the same time? Seems like a very high current draw to be holding for extended periods.
