    Very cool build btw Cav, jealous mate.  Is it going to be legal or street driven, or both?

    It’s getting engineered. I have to take it over the pits to get it registered.

    It’s just a BW which I’ll cut down and build with full spool, 31 spline and 3.7 gearing. 

     

    You reckon it will hold up?

     

     

    Also might want to consult the engineer before you go cutting anything for the heat ex changer just incase it presents an issue.

    I mean my mate they wouldnt pass it when holes were cut in the front for cooler pipes and they were quite picky about mounting methods etc. Suppose depends on the engineer

    I’ve come up with a better way to do it anyways so no holes will be cut. It will only to all existing mounts also.

     TOP FMHE: Ok so its  pwr heat exchanger smallish that yella terra sold. We cut off mounting tabs and welded on alloy straps on few angles(dont have pics sorry) so that it mounted up behind the headlight mounting bolts from memory.

     

     BASE FMHE In the holes that the plastic air deflector goes put a nut up in there, there was existing holes or you could use a riv nut.  Thats how we mounted the bast no holes cut and bar intact with full ac . So with your extra space with no ac gear be much better.

    Click on this open it up you can see the hook mounts hanging down as its not mounted yet

     

     

     

    The res was mounted into existing holes in the bay.

     

     

    Sorry thats all I have it was fitted many years and im relying on memory and the only pics I have

    Ok so thats yella terra their actual res they sell with their w2a inter cooler kits. Which im pretty sure you could buy separately. But they had issues with sealing and something else memory escapes me. etc I would just run a generic there is some neat ones on ebay.  Again we had to make our own custom mounds and remove existing mounts. But the holes in the body were all their on the strut towers

     

    It fed via a pump into this on my charged v6. But no longer intercooled decided to go built engine with cam etc. The yella terra kits had many reliability and performance/quality issues and I wanted to go full sleeper. They later went a larger front heat exchanger too and played around with amount of pass/thickness in an attempt to make it more efficient.
