Default SER1 L67 intercooler...interested..me to

How many people out there would be interested in a SER1 L67 intercooler? I am going to have the Bonne down for the winter and am planning on changing the SC oil and a few other maintenece items, and I may as well take the SC off and measure for getting a plate and heat exchanger (of some sort that I havent figured out yet...maby a tranny or oil cooler of some sort?) the rest would be simple..i.e. hanging the front mount heat exchanger and running lines and a pump and water container. If there is much interest in this I will consider having a few blanks machined so somebody else can intercool theres as well.

If there is a big enough market I may even sell these suckers...of course for a VERY discounted price to my beloved Bonne clubbers!

Tell me what you think and what you think my problems are going to be....DrJay willwren are you out there???

There'* already something in the works......and there'* a post here about it. It'll probably be ready by spring. There are also 3 test cars identified for it. But if there'* something else possible or in the works, we wanna hear about it!

I can tell you from experience that there'* a lot more to deal with on the Series 1 as the Series 2 than you might imagine (with regards to intercooling).

Ultimately, the goal of inercooling might be described as "I just want enough to drop ONE MORE pulley size without KR", right?

You might not need a full-blown intercooler to do that

I'd like to see a disign or mockup, nonetheless. SOMEBODY'* gotta do someting about us hot Series 1 folks.

They're M90. GTP would be closer for leverage because they're FWD like us.

do you think this "TOP SECRET" mod would work with an intercooler, or would this be totally useless......I still have no friggin clue on what this new secret mod is so untill I know I am still at least going to look into the possibility of fabricating an intercooler...which is a known heat killer, at least in the SER2'*.

Bonevil .... I've been kinda looking for a reason to try and adapt an aftercooler using the a/c system ( the new cobra does this... I think the lightening is doing it too now) ... but I'm going to be using a low boost street turbo motor... and high boost with propane injection assist.... you guys need GOOD constant cold... where as I can get away with decent/okay cooling .. and propane assistance when I hit the switch to up the boost


but water to air after/inter cooler cores are actually pretty cheap ... it'* the fab work to encase them in a chunk to put in the intake tubing or or sandwich in a 2 peice manifold

An intercooler would do much more then one size pulley... A decent one atleast.

It'* always a good thing to have more than one person working on this. As far as the 'one more pulley' size down is concerned, I can't go much smaller than one more step And neither can the 94/95. So going with a full-blown (no pun intended) IC may not even be necessary for THAT purpose.

The other thing to consider is demographics. How cheap can you make an IC for the 92-95 SC owners? Most have smaller budgets than the S2 guys.
