Its getting very close now,
Think I made a mistake in getting an evo intercooler, it was cheap but its too big.
Anyone know for any front mount intercoolers that fit?
Preferably one with an inlet on one side and an outlet on the opposite.

Its way too big can't get the bumper on biggrin.gif

Its a common Mod on the coupes, the change to a front mount intercooler makes room for a straight induction pipe.
When its done i'll need to sheild it against water at the bottom but i'll use the foglight hole as a vent for it.

I'll get a few more pics soon, its a lot more together now thats quite an old pic.
I should have another intercooler soon,
I just need to get an alloy pipe made up for the IAC valve, and that should be the intake taken care of.

The bumper goes on now as an added bonus!
Pipework for it should be complete as soon I have had the pipe back, had to get a plate welded on it for the IAC valve.

So conversion is mechanically finished, Just needs some other work now.
I had to modify the rad fan to get the intercooler pipe from the turbo in a decent place,
Cooler sits a bit low, but im looking to make some kind of sump guard in the near future.
Got the Pipework for the IAC made by a local engineering company.

Have'nt updated in a while.

Anyway, cars bodywork is sorted and im hoping to get it mot'd next week.
Dealt with the dreaded floorpans, drivers side was shocking, passenger side is solid though so fingers crossed.

I'd put some pics up but cameras bust at the moment.

Personally i would leave the front bumber off........ that way everyone will know you have 'BA Barackass' on steroids (more than he took while in the A team i mean) under the hood..... looks awsome!!! I would have a flashing neon sign saying 'look at my massive engine and turbo'.... BOOM!

Well the idea was to make it a sleeper but I think im failing lol.

All the pipe work was bought from here:
http://www.apmotorstore.co.uk/

The induction pipe is a 63mm bore, 45 degree alloy pipe with a 63mm silicone joiner to the turbo.
The filter is a universal single cone conical from Green Filters with a bore of 65mm, but it clamps down tidy onto the 63mm pipe.
Bought the filter from Demon Tweeks.
I needed to make a small hole in the Silicone joiner near the turbo inlet for the vacuum pipe going to the EBC valve.

Yeah it is a bit high, seemed very low to me at first, ive been driving my old Landy for a while lol.

Need to get some money first as the rear wheels will definately touch the arches if lowered,
so new rubber and a set of half tidy coilovers is on the list.

Looks fekin ace.... i love it! I would love to start a project like yours! I have a 1.8 stripped out waiting for a big lump! Cant decide to go V6 or 20vt? I have more experience with the V6 than the rewire for the 20vt! My wife has just said V6 is less letters to write..... so it could be that
