I have a Scirocco size radiator on mine and just finished mocking it up inside the core support. The elec fans stick out a little but it's better and cleaner than sitting in the stock location.

Kool, I'm staying with the same size rad, and thinking about pushingit forward and tilted back. Prolly gonna cut up, or out most of the core support. I already have a tubular bumper, might just get the support in tubing too.

OK...a little more progress. New motor and trans. Hot and cold side fabbed. Mount radiator, wastegate and the rest of the downpipe. Oil return to pan and some other odds and ends and this thing will be ready to fire...

That turbo looks a lot like the Cat one I have sitting in the shop!! Do you have any other close-ups of the turbo and how you ended up mounting the rad?

Awesome car!!

How are you controlling or limiting the boost on that deal? How much does it make?
