    Working on the intercoolers. These are driving me nuts. How to mount, where to run pipes, clearance clearance clearance... Here's what I came up with. Hacked off the top tank and made my own, modified the bottom tank. Getting the top tank "lid" to follow the sides was a test of patience, it's not a consistent bend..

    I remember doing my last one. Started bolting things in, no problem, plenty of room. Then as lines, tubing, etc. grew all of a sudden you had to really use your brain to figure out how to fit everything. The old "10 pounds of crap in a 5 pound bag" comes to mind............. :happy:

    Nice job.

    I know this a turbo set up, but here's how the intercooler is mounted in my Procharger application. It all fits good, I'm just going to have to finagle with the hood latch a little bit to get it to work

    A bit more progress. Pretty happy with the layout, check out the "C notches" under the intercooler pipes on top of the radiator and rad support. The bottom 2 pics were before the notches and the intercoolers were not aligned. The blue silicone elbow was just holding the rad in place. There will be a Y pipe between there and the throttle body.

    That is a work of art in car guy terms. I'd love to do this to my car but as funds are limited at the moment she's only getting her LQ4, Cam, Heads and 4L80E. As funds and the wifes patience permit I would like to do something similar to this. Keep up the god work man I'm enjoying the pics.
