Good customer service would have been test fitting it on a Mini Cooper before it left the factory in Japan. Saves so much time, money and pain.

i have decided i am going to run the new radiator, but use a different intercooler. I am going to run a side by side radiator and intercooler. So they will both get fresh air. I wont take pics of this until it is finished because this is just trial and error at this point

Just checking up on your thread. Shame about the bonnet, was still keen for one. This might mean they will be a better standard in the future though?

yes, the next hood i get should be perfect. Especially since this one was only 1cm off from being perfect on one side.


I just ordered my new intercooler. Oh boy how i love doing custom stuff. The trial and error of spending money haha. this is my third intercooler and third radiator. lets hope that the 3rd time is the charm.

Ordered a few new goodies:

Autopower full cage
oil cooler
Earls AN fittings,
10' of Permoflex hose

Still need to order: roof skin, remote oil filter, carbon hatch, fittings and lines for turbo, dual oil temp/pressure gauge. And thats about it.

I have decided that my fabricator is taking WAY too long to do anything. Even though its free, i will never get anything done at this rate. I am ordering my roof skin at the end of the month and will be dropping my car off at a different fabricator to weld the cage in and roof on. Then i drop to car off an another shop to have everything else finished with the intercooler piping and new shroud.

No pics yet

thanks man, I hope it turns out well. I got my new intercooler in the mail today, but i think it might be too small for my power output. im going to consult with a local builder and see.

If it is too small. i will get a different radiator and use my spearco intercooler again haha
