    Trial fitted my intercooler

    I had a play with my intercooler today working out how I was going to fit it etc.

    I have spaced the rad back at the bottom by putting the front bolt in the back hole and rotated the fan, removed the cover and bolted it in place. This gives me about 5mm clearence as it is but I can also space the the intercooler down to gain more clearence.....

    This is the gap with the interccoler bolted level with the crash bar:




    Fan location:




    And what it will look like






    Just need to get the pipes when I can afford it and get it all on.

    Good work there.

    Looks like its going to be tight getting the pipe to link the IC outlet to your boost pipe though.

    That looks very mean Lee - could you give me the dimensions of the intercooler mate - it looks like it might just fit my needs...

    Outlet will go into the engine bay next to the battery like the Pace ones do so loads of room.

    * Dimension : 21" x 7" x 2.5"
    * Inlet/Outlet : 2.5"

    Andy mine is mounted lower than the lip too. The top of the mounting is level with the crash bar 'BUT' I dont know what other room there is though on the coupe bumpers.
