I’ve got round to fitting the Intercooler! Took a little bit of the eye to line it all up. As the bracket isn’t in the middle it just confused me at times! BUT..
All is well, it’s in and fitted. 🙂
The oil lines for the relocation & oil cooler on the other hand took a little playing with..
I ordered a job lot of AN-10 fittings from Ali-express! Who wants to pay $$$$ for pretty much the same part when you can acquire it at a faction of the cost. The quality was really good a couple of them had a few marks! but for the price I didn’t complain.
I started off by sorting out the relocation lines first, which turned out quite well. Using 45° fittings off the block and one 45° and 180° on the relocation housing itself.
For the oil cooler I used x2 45° and routed the lines down past the fuse box and under the front head light swinging round hooking up to the 19 ROW oil cooler using x2 90° fittings.
All in all it’s coming together quite well. Next Step!!! TURBO MANIFOLD! 😍 😍 😍
Can’t do a post without a engine bay SHOT!
Looking good! I feel your pain with the oil cooler, I’m in the middle of fitting an oil take off/thermostatic relocation and oil cooler to a BBR NC at the moment.
Struggling to find a decent way of routing the lines past the intake manifold to the take off plate and a decent way of mounting the oil cooler without welding.
Hey Owain, Thanks 🙂 With the OEM inlet manifold it’s tight, I didn’t even attempt it with that in place. I ran 45 degree -10AN fittings and went between the water pipe and the body of the car. Which you may just about have enough room to do that with the OEM inlet manifold in place. You also remove all the water lines to the OEM oil cooler which free’s up room.
Mounting the oil cooler itself, I originally had 2 flat bit of aluminium that used the under tray bolt holes and it was mounted in-front of the radiator.
