I don't see why not, But isn't the V8 a rather large cooler? Unless that'll fit right over it, Or slight ontop of it.. I don't see how. But you could always try to make it work biggrin.gif

Ducts are made to be connected directly to the fan as to not lose air pressure when needing to draw in cool air from elsewhere. the V8 has the fan in the middle with heat spreaders surrounding it making ducting impossible. You won't get any pressure at all and the ducting will only make performance worst by making the area full of dead air that doesn't move because there's no seal around the ducting and fan. It would only work if you connected a fan to the outside of the v8 with the duct directly sealing around the fan.

Ah, Thanks for chiming in. I've never owned / seen a V8 (Other than the Engine biggrin.gif) in person, So I wasn't sure how they worked.
