Custom intercooler and piping plus general fab
Posted 13 December 2012 - 07:25 PM
I started off doing a simple bolt on turbo swap but when looking at intercooler kits I couldn't decide which one was best for my application. I saw a few of the guys on here make their own "in-bay" intercoolers so I decided to give it a go.
All the work on my car I have done myself at home and most of the fab and welding I do at work as I'm an apprentice pipe fitter/welder.
Will throw some pics up later tonight.

Not to discourage you because I am often wrong, however I'll be interested to know if you have any overheating issues once complete. A lot of people run these intercooler touching radiator setups, obviously successfully. I believe there would be too much heatsoak, although they do make for a neat engine bay. Get her going, give it a good long thrash and maybe you can give us some feedback.

I'm pretty confident that it will work efficiently, but I guess we will see how it goes. Will keep you updated.

quick question, i was going to connect up a mbc to the turbo side pipe but im going to buy an ebc and was just wondering if it connects up the same way?

I thought it was an r34 one but someone told me r33? I added an extra piece of plastic to go around the fan because it was sucking air in from the sides.
