    Already had to slice the line running from the pump to the box, can i place a cooler on that line?

    *edit* and where have other people mounted it? I looked under my truck and the best place for a 17" long 2.5" wide cooler?

    I wouldn't do it. The high pressure side runs as high as 1,200 PSI. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I don't think the cooler is rated to deal with that.

    NO, DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!
    your just asking for trouble. the pressure would be way to high for any normal cooler. you need to run the cooler after the box and on the return line back to the pump. Also you need to make sure that the cooler is mounted no higheer than the resivior to help insure that you don't get air pockets in it.

    My factory P/S cooler is mounted under the radiator support.
