Default Something COOL came along ;-)

I'm sure some of you recall I was working on some intercoolers, well the work has come to an end...here'* the result;



The grey semicircle you see is some JB Weld that fills in a channel for the PCV. It was a bit of a challenge but the PCV will be functional.

Can't wait to get it installed.

Cheers,

Beautiful job Foghorn. Are these going to be a production part?

Can't wait to see the differences in track results.

I'd be real interested on any info you have. Things like moving the alt bracket and adjusting fuel rail height to the injectors to name a couple. Good work!!! :P

Well, we'll see about that. I have other custom parts being made so once the car is all setup then maybe we'd consider doing parts to sell.

I have no idea of the average cost, I know the aluminum was about $150 CDN. So far it hasn't cost me a cent...you just have to have friends who own a machine shop

It'a a supercharger thing. It won't bolt up to a N/A intake.

I don't think there'd be any real benefit in it for the N/A'd guys if it would bolt up....
