PART10. Seeing off.

Some technical processes are passed without me including shortening of semiaxis.
First drive out video: первый выезд

It's waiting for bodework:




Tightly:


I was very glad of bypass instead blow off 'cause I won't do "pfff, pfff" on parking))))) biggrin.gif



Originar coolers still at it's place - pleasantly
Two yaers ago I hit my car on winter track. I've purchased radiator with two excess tubes and now I'm very glad of it: it is for turbine cooling))))

1.9jtd weight is 100-110 kg, 20vt - 130 kg. Battery went to the trunk. All is goog smile.gif

PART 11. Bodywork.


Thanks you gгys for helping with headlamp washer jets thumbsup.gif





При снятии форсунок с бампера я тщательно замерил положение отверстий в бампере, т.к. форсунки мне показались нерегулируемыми. Листик с замерами я, естественно, потерял. Пришлось прибегнуть помощи британских коллег.





In the bumper, it was decided to make two air inlet for the oil cooler and intercooler in place of useless worthless fog lamps:












Air from the air intake will rise through custom plastic duct to a horizontal intercooler, after passing through it will go through offtake in the hood. This solution was suggested by Savva and justified. To me it seemed a bold and elegant, and I decided to try it. What is to be Breather thought long and hard, in fact wanted to not ruin the appearance of cars.
Possible advantages:
1) effective evacuation of air from the intercooler (which is absolutely not in normal position);
2) low volume intake tract pressure - less lag (compared to the miles of pipelines in the removal of the intercooler in advance).
Possible disadvantages:
1) ineffectiveness of the chosen design air outlet in the hood;
2) lack of pressure the incoming flow because of the air duct of complex shape.
Foreseeing a comment to this decision, just want to say: Among us there was no one expert on aerodynamics, so everything was done as it seemed correct.
In the end, the decision on the form of air outlet were born by bodyworker. Risky decision - there is concern that the incident on the hood of flow will interfere with the exit of air from the intercooler. However, this decision was a compromise between appearance, performance and simplicity of the solution. If you look closely, we see that to create a low pressure air above the grate on the front edge of the lattice made of "spoiler" in height 8-10 mm above the hood, decreasing from the rear portion thereof. The resulting lattice has a surprisingly large cross section and covers approximately 70% of the intercooler. Another difficulty was that, exactly on the intercooler are stiffening and bending the hood line.

Because of mechanic's broken leg and bodeworker's creative crisis I remembered that I have QV steering wheel and some other original and not things.

PART 12. Bodywork doesn't stop.

I found this headlamps and like it. I could not find it near me and I had to order them from France.



But back to the box. From whatever they were trying to do, nor what did not work. To make the desired shape of the Fiberglass box that's even used such a tool:

As a result one of belarussian alfists gave me the material from which only came to make a box so complex forms in such an awkward spot:













Looks pretty cool:
















Rust sad.gif



The end is coming))))

will the cooler be insulated at all to prevent the heat soak? the area where it is mounted is a very hot place, pretty close to the head and the very hot exhaust manifold/turbo. that area is a pretty warm place. the air feed you have sorte dlooks pretty good for getting air flow across it but it would be better if there was some sort of shielding from the heat i feel.
like the bonnet vents, done well.
nissan struggled to get the rally gtir to perform with an underbonett intercooler with all there money and experience, albeit it actually sat on top of the engine, but the heat soak raised the inlet temperatures too high once the stage was running.
subaru make theirs work but due to the boxer design the heads (hottest part of the engine besides exhaust) are far from the 'coolers position


really hope it does work, you've done a good job in getting things in there wink.gif but...........i still can't understand why not just use a front mounted one dunno.gif you had room left over below the cross-member to mount one similar to how i did mine, air-con rad wouldn't affect the position in any way

good luck with it all, hope it all goes to plan thumbsup.gif

I like something to think and to do then. Not nesessary with my own hands. No final result is impotant - I like process and embodyment of idea.
This location of intercooler seemed to me very brave and interesting - thats the only reason. Now I get it works better at stock place before the left wheel, especially with new bumper construction and effective air outlet. As I get it, it was too late - all "breathing" was made.
As you made... You have no climat system and use it's place. I cannot let myself do so because it is every-day-car and climat is needed.

Thanks for idea of heat insulation - I'll think about it. One of the reasons: if car does not move the air gets natural circulation. In the stock place and in your case partially it's very hard. My diesel loose the power in slow city motion - I didn't like it))))))

didnt know it went international smile.gif

as for the reasons I offered the intercooler to be located there
1. external air flow should be more than enough and much more than in regular place
2. Short high-pressure pipeline which improves throttle response and reduces lag effect.
3. Intercooler is exposed to high under-bonnet temperatures with only one side. Maybe it shuold be better to have some insulation there, I'll think about it... Though, no cooling airflow is exposed to high teperetures, all external air ducts are foamed plastic which is good thermo-insulation itself
4. it was fun smile.gif was it really? biggrin.gif

PART 13. Bodywork is almost complete.















All the rust is defeated:






It's something for coffee smile.gif


[hr]

First I was thinking about led day lights, buy finally purchased Hella Micro DE



Its small - 60mm max diameter - and will be installed to air intakes.

I was searching for original spoiler for 3 years and finally got it smile.gif



Transfomers:


It was a choise: to cut new headlamp tuning system or piece of weird bracket. I choose second. I hope the engine will not shake more then 1/3".


Headlamps are delicious!
