Default gauging intrest on S1 intercoolers

Do to another thread i have just realized that there is no intercooler for the series one guys (i know i'm slow). So I was thinking of building one for myself but oviously it would be cheeper to do a bunch of them. So who would be interested in this? the price would be about 400 apiece . This would be for just the core only unless I get a very good response then i might think about putting a kit together. Also i'm looking for a lower intake an eaton 65 housing and a gasket so i dont' have to have a car down for R&D. Let me know who would be interested and i'll start putting together exact pricing.

I already have one designed, but not the various other problems. It will be more expensive than a S2 intercooler because you need to modify the alternator bracket, and there is no off-the-shelf solution for the fuel rail and injector retainers.

Mine is in 3D CNC machine language already, but is NOT a traditional intercooler. It'* a water-cooled isolation plate. I chose this route due to thermal analysis research on the M62 Eaton.

If you raise the SC, you'll have problems. Take a look at the nosedrive/alt bracket attachment and you'll see what I mean. This is not going to be a cheap alternative, but I've kept potential costs down by simplifying the design to not be a heat exhanger.

The hottest surface of the M62 setup is the inlet of the SC believe it or not. If you provide a seperate path from another cooling source for this and prevent hot coolant from pre-heating your SC and TB, this can be alleviated, keeping the supplied air cooler before compression.

The double gaskets and cooling plate will solve the 2nd hottest surface which is the outlet face of the Eaton.

for the nose drive mount i would use a simple 3 holed bracket should work fine. On my fiero i had to lower the alt mount and it'* not even mounted to the nose drive. I haven't had any problems but i would still include a bracket with any hting i sold to some one else to give me and them piece of mind.

this is what i have come up with for the injector and fuel rail problem kinda expensive but would work the other option is an MSD part buti haven't researched it completly.



As for the coolent in the front of the intake could we in theory block off the passages from the intake to the supercharger then drill and tap the */c for some barbed fittings?

its been so long since i've had mine apart i can't really remember and all i have are some pics of my coupler change. I really need to get some parts to r and d

Barb fittings will be in my isolation plate, completing the loop through the sc and tb from a seperate source with a low-volume low-flow pump and small radiator on the driver'* side of the oem radiator.

Those extenders for the injectors just pushed this whole project out of the affordable budget of every Series 1 owner here. That'* the problem. You have to overcome the budget restraints.

I have a spare L67 fuel rail for R&D, and all the SC and manifold R&D is already done. John Wikoff and I bounced it back and forth during the last stages of the design.
