Re: Moved Ignition Module
The single best thing you can do to cool things down is raise the module up off the fender, or where ever it's mounted, and put a sheet metal heat shield in between the module and any header tubes that might be facing it...
Allow air to circulate behind the module, and allow the edges of the module housing to work like heat sinks on both sides.
The second best thing is hood louvers or vents directing clean air too, or taking heat away from the module...
Heat rises, so expecting it to go out with the air flow past the transmission is a little short sighted...
The old time (and not so old time) circle track racers use scoops and flexible duct work to direct clean front end air to everything from brakes to electronics to the air filter.
It's always a good idea to have oil coolers (transmission, engine, power steering, differentials, ect.) in the clean air stream.
It's also a good idea to include things like the voltage regulator (if you have an external voltage regulator), the ignition module, ect. up there.
Moving the ignition module to the space between the radiator front and the front grill isn't out of the question either, it just takes a three extra feet of 6 wires, some solder, and some heat shrink tubing.
Some guys on real race cars in the old days moved everything between the radiator and the front grill.
(if you ever look at the space between the radiator and front grill on a late 50's through late 80's car, you will see why!)
