    Not everyone has a lathe in their shop, to whip out custom billet parts on demand. Tell him if he'll buy you the tools, you'll make fancier stuff.

    Also see what kind of work he'd crank out in 127% humidity and 100°F. Seems he's probably used to, uh, somewhat cooler environments:

    Lithuanian. If using a "real" PC, right-click in Chrome and select "Translate" to get a readable Engrish translation. Not sure what options are if using a mobular device.

    Re: Turbo 400E

    I dont mind the way I did my turbo kit. I can always go back and remake the lower part of the kit with oval pipe to gain some ground clearance when I do decide to lower it. First things first though, I need to build a helmholtz on the down pipe to eliminate the drone at 80mph. You can barely hear the exhaust at 65 with the windows up and Radio/AC off, but 80mph (2600-ish rpms) is the absolute worst. Also, enjoy this mid buff/detail picture lol.

    Did some tinkering today. Replaced my clogged condenser so I could have AC again. Kinda lets you see how the Turbo kit sits in there lol. Also finally added a filter.

    Re: Turbo 400E

    BTW: if you can't get an intercooler in there right away, perhaps consider a cheap water-injection just for safety (do not tune expecting it, unless you can have a different map when the water is either out, or the system doesn't work). Water-injection has helped my turbo'd RX7 live a long life.

    Yeah I'm going to try to be there Saturday. Also I've come to the conclusion that I'll need to cut the front of the car to run a convention intercooler.

    Go with a water to air cooler and heat exchangers, way more efficient and no cutting of impact structure needed

    Awesome, guess I'll bring the 500E.

    BTW: I run water-injection even with an intercooler on the RX7, and it REALLY HELPS, especially if you go with a programmable unit that monitors RPM, load, as well as system malfunction and a water-level indicator:

    Yeah I toyed around with the idea of water/Meth injection, but I want a minimal maintenance reliable turbo kind of car lol.

    He can run the water injection fully adjustable through megasquirt, just need the pump and nozzles. It can also pull timing and boost if the water level is low

    I bought a W/A intercooler from a 6.7l Ford diesel but I wasn't aware it was this big. W/A kits are also prone to heat soak while sitting in traffic. A2A dissipates heat rather quick while the W2A takes longer.

    I'll run the 6.7l intercooler on my Mercedes diesel dodge and just run a conventional intercooler on the 400E. Have it look like this for a while.

    Re: Turbo 400E

    It looks so clean with an uncut bumper and intact unibody though, otherwise it will just look like every other cobbled 124 turbo...

    With the 6+ gallon capacity in the super wagon I have driven for over an hour in traffic then 2.5+bar boost runs and AC blasting with zero heat soak. In fact the IC and lines will be cool to the touch, with ice added you can get well below ambient...something that is impossible with an A2A.

    It takes a very long time to heat up that much water with properly sized side mount radiators. Plus you are not putting the charge air heat directly back into the radiator and condenser (if you keep the AC) and are impervious to telephone poles

    My diesel had a decent size intercooler behind an uncut bumper, no one knew at all. My brother has a W2A kit on his turbobandits E320, and it does do well, but his heat exchanger took the spot of one of his aux fans and after that it was trial and error to find a new fan setup to keep his car cool in this traffic. Also this car sits in stop and go Florida blistering heat traffic for about 45min to an hour and even his E320 see's higher IAT's for a while even after traffic has started moving again.

    I gave it to a buddy with a W210 super diesel. Only felt right to keep the plate going after it survived a head on collision.

    Re: Turbo 400E

    I'll have to check the dimensions of the radiators I used, but they fit perfectly behind the stock e320 bumper and even better behind the 036

    The oil cooler fits great in the passenger side aux fan hole also

    Yay, the wheels for Turdo came in. Now should I have them powder coated black and fulfill my dream of having a truly murdered out W124? Or keep them silver . Hmmm.
