Why don't you use the Ford Probe Heater Core? The demensions are 6" wide X 9" long X 2" thick.

The outlet opening in the M90 is 4" wide, I presume the M62 is the same. By looking at the LIM, it would be just as easy to do the the M62 intercooler as the M90.

I hope to have my 2 prototypes ready for the M90 over the next few weeks. It will use the core mentioned above, be done in 2 halves and bolted together with 6 capscrews and black anodized. I will be doing of run of about 10 of these in time for spring delivery. For comparison, I will be making them available for about $700 CDN ($580 US) with the core included and SC mounting studs.

I'm also hoping to do custom fuel rails and/or spacers.

Ahhh winter...project time

Cheers,

No crap to that.....You cannot use a core that long because of the interferance with the boost bypass valve...I dont think you want boost leak from the bypass valve to the LIM or vice versa...and on the SC is an indentation that when sitting on the LIM would make this more likely. But good idea, when im ready to IC the Buick I may talk to ya...unless ZZP get my bizznass....or I may just build another one, im finding that doing it that way is much cheaper than the alternative of paying someone to do it...my parts subtotal will probably be like 600-700 for a one off peice and would be cheaper could I do say 5 as a limeted run. But are there 5 SER1 owners out there that want one that bad?????

Have you seen the ZZP Intercooler? It'* no problem at all as to where the boost is bled off back into the SC intake through the Boost Bypass Valve. Check out the intake ZZP sells to match the IC, the opening is cut out all the way from the original opening in the LIM back to the Boost Bypass Valve.

If you want pictures just email me and I'll send you a few good shots.

PM me if you have one to volunteer for the effort, either from 92/93 or 94/95. You'll get it back when I'm done.
I'm going to work on my car tomorrow, I think the pulley is still in it. I'll send it out if you want. How long do you suspect you'll need it? Don't really care, just curious.

A week. 2 at the most. Getting my boss'* 2.85 soon to borrow, but having a stock 2.55 will be great too. It'll only take an hour or two to create the model and file, but I may need a week to find the time to do it.

Update #4 picked up my IC core today, again a little pricy, but he said the price would definatly drop if I got a group buy.......so here are a few pics to whet the appetite of those salivating SER1 L67 guys.
Notice how little clearance there is for the vaccum to go through next to the IC core...when I get the plate CNC'd the thing will have to be withing less than a mm of tolerance....I think most CNCs can do that right???

Pictures of core sitting in its future home on the LIM
