The GLHS intercooler was a Spearco core with universal cast end tanks. I was able to dictate where I wanted the inlet and outlet locations. I basically just made it fit. You could call it a semi-custom universal intercooler (lol). That guy is no longer in business. The fabbed part? Well they're all fabbed by someone (lol). My local welder had to go over a couple areas that had pinhole leaks and added the DSM mounting pad for the BOV. How did it run? First time out it went 11.90's @ 119. The BOV was releasing at 18 PSI, so I couldn't turn up boost any higher. It went quicker and faster later on.Very interesting how the routing for the charge piping goes back out the front of the engine bay! What is that intercooler, the endtanks look fabbed.
What intercooler is in the red car? Npr?
The car will retain the grill, this is very important to be to keep it original looking in that respect. The only part of the NPR install that i like so much is the fact that it sits between the radiator and core support. I was looking at picking up an intercooler core from bell intercoolers and recreate the NPR. But im always open to other options!
How did that maserati omni run?
The maroon Omni's intercooler is an aftermarket upgrade kit for a popular late model car. Bar and plate design. Supposed to flow 900 CFM with very low pressure drop. I welded on a couple bungs for upper mounting points to core support. The center radiator core support was removed and replaced with something much stronger and the lower radiator mounting brackets where relocated a little over 4 inches to center the radiator in between the intercoolers inlets/outlets. Fits like a glove... now (lol)! Both cars fabbed radiator core support brackets were tied into the latch at the top, and the bottom factory turbo L-bodies front mount reinforcement. Far stronger than the factories flimsy sheet metal support.
The hollowed out bumper one would think must be weakened. Nope, must be three times as strong as the factory L-body bumpers with those four gussets I added. The bumpers are each also tucked in 2-3 inches. Bumper brackets also WAY stronger than originals. I always hated the way the bumper brackets showed on the omni's. Now they don't on my maroon car. Car is now 5-6 inches shorter (hehe).
