FAT shroud cont...

Closeup of the breather tower....compare this to the first pic in the previous post. Look at the fan shroud mount on top of the tower...there seems to be no machining.



This mod seems to be very minor....even in the age of the internet and global information sharing...you STILL have to determine for yourself if something will work or not

I will keep you posted !

Man... I had the chance to get a mild modded 2.0 aout a year ago now with a FAT shroud. I turned it down because of it and the fact that I couldn't bargan the guy down or to take it off. Like Sandeep said, if the FAT shroud fits with that minor cut, i'd be all over it. And it looks pretty cool, IMO.

I am not sure if that is the FAT shroud. The Germans had shrouds like that many years ago. But that should be all you have to do....cut a hole and relocate the license plate light above it to hide it. Ask FAT for more details....they should know.
I have seen many cars like that in the late 80s and early 90s before they moved to a machined case shroud. Modifications to an early style decklid like the W decklid is way more and in my opinion it will screw up the look of your old car totally becasue you can not hide it at all.

I have FAT shroud, can measure for you

I have a FAT shroud on a 2.4L Type IV going into a Meyers Manx and can measure for dimensions if anyone desires. Let me know.

Thanks,

I'd like some measurements, please. I'm curious to find out if it can be done.

Thumbs up Great !

SuperRSi,

Thanks for the offer. Could you please measure from the center of the crankcase pulley to the top of the fan sitting on the breather tower. What is the diameter of the fan you are using ? # of Blades ?

Thanks for the help !

Sandeep

The Fat shroud will fit with that small cut. I talked to them before I bought my shroud from CIP (cheap copy of the BAS shroud). No machining required. I did not want to have my fan sticking out the sheet metal though so I chose a different shroud.

Great!
That small hole looks pretty cool!
I do not mind cutting that hole on my decklid. It will be hard to see. Even more if you pass along at 180 Km/h!
:silly:

For some reason, I like that "crammed in" look that cutting the lid gives you. And, for those who would say "why do that when you can get one that fits in the deck?" My answer? "Because I can".

Thumbs up Cool !

That is good news !

The reason I don't want to machine the case is because the engine is a runner and I don't want to take it apart to machine the case.

In the future (2 to 3 yrs) when I rebuild it, I will consider the machining...

Talking To make you all unsafe...

The Germans gave this style up, as the original air blades (Porsche part) behind the fan/ring route the air definitely to much to number 1/2 and not to 3/4. Some specially done aluminum sheets have to be fabricated to get it nearly as good as the deeper sitting form. The main difference is the volume and curve from the shroud behind the ring. Nowadays the form falls straight down behind the ring and is very near the engine case. The older forms look more like a bubble, as FAT has! I wouldn't use it!
