I streathed mine and used 2 6 inch long pieces of aluminium pipe to allow for the extra length. It would look better with the right cooler but that's all I did to make it work. You'll never own a short track again, it's a wicked upgrade. Make sure the extention kit you get allows for the longer hyfax, some keep the regular hyfax and I wouldn't reccomend them.

I used muffinworks kit to stretch mine to 144. Best thing I have ever done. A friend also did his to 136 and he is happy....not as happyas me but happy.

Helped my buddy do his extension kit and it was a breeze. We never had to touch the coolant system at all

Stretched mine to 144 tip up from muffinworks. The hardest part was putting the new track on. No coolent issues with stock.
