    Has anyone lowered their radiator? I'm talking just the radiator itself, not the support or anything. I'm needing to gain an inch and looking at it, I don't think it would be overly hard. Decreased cooling is the only issue that I could possibly see as a problem, but I don't think it would be THAT big of a deal.

    Ideas? Comments?

    Thanks

    Has no one else tried or done this? How about making a custom mount for it? Any ideas are welcome.
