So I was thinking that my charge cooler from my rx4 project would be waaaay too big due to engine bay size... HOWEVER! I cut the piping off as I'm literally bored to death and had a quick gander to see...

Well my oh my its going to going in there just perfect, I'm cutting a fair bit of the front panel out anyway so it will guve me room to move it forward tucked in behind the bumper ANNNNNDD that will give me loads of room for the engine radiator and also the rad used to cool the charge cooler

I might be able to get away without running  the charge cooler rad by using a water/ice box in the boot and run lines through the car,

ice cooled water X super chilled charge air
= more horseypowers

I have seen people use dry ice but I will have to look into that as I know the dry ice coolers on drag cars need a vent system as the dry ice gives off gas or something

I know the charge cooler system will be heavier but I already own this and it will save me a lot of money instead of purchasing a top of the line intercooler

No that's with engine in and gear box! Iv had turbo in there too and iv stood on it and it just doesn't go anywhere.

Iv still got the interior to come out too, electric heated seats etc.

Even adding a full roll cage isn't going to drop it that much?

Speaking of the interior, does anyone know anyone that wants the stuff? Plus a gear box. Much cheaper than current ebay prices too

We were worried it might not happen but they had stated on the news that people at the point and in the middle of exchanging contracts were allowed to complete etc because there no real way to stop the process without it costing everyone thousands

Keeping most of the dash just removing everything behind so it somewhat resembles a car interior.

NOT sure on the hoops, if it has any. Will be taking the cover off later today and maybe pull the seats out for something to do
