I agree, it would also give some good downforce to the front end at speed which would help stability.
Wouldn't cure the airlock problems of front mounted Radiators when using standard water pumps though :smt018

you got to make sure you get the size of pipe too mate, to shift the water by volume,, rather than speed, look at seans camper with subi lump in it, the rad is at the front, and that engine wasnt designed to have the rad, 10 foot away, how does he manage it, volume, the pipe size is massive compared to some front rad covins, :smt012 :smt012 :smt012

danny the rad and the pipe work i think is the original vw t25 system, i might be wrong but it looks pretty standard, and seems to work well. after all he went to france up and down them hills, you aint telling me you could do that danny, at momemnt :smt012 :smt012 , but also the rad mounted in the back has now been sorted thanks to darren :smt012 :smt012 so you dont need it at the front , i know what you mean though mate, better air flow at all speeds

My camper uses standard t25 plumbing ie about 40mm flow and return pipes with 15 mm heater pipes. The rad is huge though and is well positioned for good air flow, also the rad sits at the highest point with a bleed valve at the top so no air lock issues. Ive done 4 trips abroad some 12000 miles France Italy Switzerland etc etc in extremes of temp ( one memerable day in Saint Tropez )jeez it was hot, Ive towed a trailer with cars and campers on hundreds of miles and never had any cooling issues, This has sold the idea of a front rad in the covin for me, however I wont get as good as air flow !!! and the rad wont be the highest point so may have bleeding trouble unless I hoist the front end up when bleeding. Also overcooling can cause trouble so good stat control is essential. Im planning on using the same cooling route design as my van conversion making use of t25 reservoir and expansion tanks. The subaru stat relies on heater circuit feedback so if your heater matrix closes off you lose stat control !!!!!! unless you create a bypass loop with a small orofice in ..... Proper understanding is key to good running temp especially with flat alloy engines which will damage in seconds. will let you know how I get on with the covin install still convinced it will be fine :smt012 :smt012

:smt012 nice one sean, you see chaps the rad at the front can be done, but it has to be done right, at the back is a bit more forgiving i think ,
