Good choice on placement, it looks like it's meant to be there. I like this better as the install looks cleaner imo.Getting closer to being done with this..
Big Woody did his job,...the intercooler basically went right where it was mocked up to go. The real estate in front of the engine, and behind the radiator is completely used up. Getting stuff all wiggled in so that couplers would go on was a bitch though.
I still gotta plumb the water lines and reinstall the BOV, put on clamps, etc, etc...but i’m close to test mode. The fender aprons are a disaster,...The front passenger side has three large holes in it, and the driver side has one. I’m thinking Scott Rod Aluminum panels are destined to be the next mod.
The whole engine compartmeant has fallen into a state of “ less than“ for me. I need to spend some serious time reassessing what needs to be done to bring up the standard to where i’m happy with it.
No, this one won’t be a “see if you like it” before I commit. They take pics of the car, and use it to create a rendering before saying yes. It’s half of what a “good“ paint job would cost, and 3-5 days in a shop instead of 3-5 months, a real easy yes for me.If you pull this off it will be very cool. If you don't get it right, you'll tear $3500 of vinyl off and throw in the trash.
Of all the things that this car has seen, the one thing I can say I’m most happy with is this current engine swap.Hell, you could even go and do something silly like an LS-swap.
I think you’re probably right. But as with all of the ideas that pop into my head, some float ( Putting BMW throttle bodies on the side of an Aussie Ford Crossflow head), and some Sink....(Getting rid of the turbo in favor of that.)Since it sounds like you're looking for opinions on the wrap idea, I have to say I'm not a big fan of many of them. But if you do go that route, less is more. I think you already realize that, but that's how I look at it.
