You're too crazy. The only reason you'd be asking about an intercooler is if you were thinking of turbocharging you're rig! Go for it!

For me, just to get things rolling, I'm going to attach another 8" fan to the back of the stock IC.

But the long term idea is an air/water IC. I've installed the Audi TT 225hp intake manifold so there is a very short run from the turbo outlet to the manifold intake, and just in between there's enough room for the intercooler. There will be a couple of small motorcycle radiators up front. The other option is a small wing over the rear window with a small motorcycle radiator in it.

About the radiator, let me know if you need something specific. I'm thinking about going to WRC Rally Mexico, and I could send something after I fly it down there.

Ok, Thanks.

Yes I think in the supercharger for the future but first y need to find a transmission can handle the torque, becose I think the actually transmission can't handle.

Hi

Love what your doing with your car. I bought a air/water IC from an early Subaru Libery RS. It was only $150 with pump and radiator, the beauty is that it will almost connect straight up to my STI motor.

Hey Steve!

The problem is that there were never any Subaru Legacy RS's here! Maybe you can hook me up with an intercooler when I get there. I just don't know how much shipping is! I might be having Bob fab up some more of the suspensions over there, so if I do there may be a crate being shipped back this way.

Hio Jason

Are you coming out to Australia? Have to meet if we can. I bought my intercooler from SSS Automotive in Sydney http://www.sssautomotive.com.au/ , they will sell just the IC for $50.00 Au, thats cheap in your money, they are not heavy, so post would not be to much. A friend is using one on a big Type 4 motor and as its all alloy he was able to weld up unused holes and make new ones.

Actually yes! High on my list is a trip down under. I've only heard good things, and I'd like to meet Bob Frost-Stevenson, the designer of my front end as well. Where are you located anyway?

I have in mind something similar but unfortunately here in mexico nobody make an aluminium radiator.

I have to import from USA but the taxes and shipping are killingme.

Do you know anyone in the US who can get it made for you and then send it to you as a "gift" therefore bypassing the tax ?

Just a thought.

C'mon hugovw1976,

We're all family here

Care to let your big brother Kevin here drive your toy seeing as I sent you the radiator?

Seriously though. What would be the easiest way to get this guy the custom unit he needs? I'll meet you at the Rio Grande! I'll just hand it over the 'border' to you

Thanks for the offer Hugo, but I'm owed these parts, I'm just waiting and waiting for them. He'll get it squared away eventually, but we all die someday and I'm not sure which will come first!

Not much progress lately. Been very busy and its hot, so I've not been to motivated. Have worked out a removable rear strut mount design, so as soon as I get off my a$$ things should start rolling again. The strut mounts will become part of the car, while the superstructure can be removed after being unbolted from the strut mounts.

I went to pickandpull and got a Jetta steering rack. It will have to be locked so it doesn't turn at all and I'll use that in the back for now till I fab up something lighter.
