SVO: IC rigging???
I just got back from a small salvage yard that I recently discovered in
town. The have an '87 Conquest TSI - complete motor/turbo setup. I
noticed that it had a rather large (3" X 16" X 8") front mount
intercooler. The plumbing looked like 2.25" daimeter. Based on a quick
talk with the yard owner, I think that I could pick it and the plumbing
up for about $75.
Has anybody seen or tried a similar setup? Is it feasible? This
particular piece was in front of the radiator...is this a must? Any
ideas on mounting locations? How hard/expensive is it to bend/plumb the
new lines? I don't know of anyone around here that can do mandrel
bends. What other sorts of businesses might have tubing bender (other
that muffler shops)?
Sorry about the 20 questions....just brainstorming!
