Now for the intake side of the intercoolers. I had to move a support for the lower diffuser to make this work. Its hard to just predict as things will go, theres always some change again and again till everything is mounted and routed.

Xover pipe from the Turbo outlet on and figuring how to mount is solidly. I welded a tap in-between

the shock towers to clamp onto.

Wastegate plumbed in and mounted. I'll vent this in-between

Wiring some electrical underside. With the battery in the front this is my connection to the starter. Makes it easy to just unbolt the one wire going to it and power is disconnected. Ive made this cradle east to drop just in case

Boozie, impressive to say the least ------ the only thing you haven't touched on is a fire suppression system. Did I miss it or are you going to build one in.

Remember -Carlisle is now mid June!

I took the modified 4sp shifter out and got my 5sp shifter ready. Reverse lockout installed and welded in instead of bolted. Cables checked for fitment. Shifter feels MUCH better now. Tighter and easier to find reverse without hitting it over. The new Guru system uses a spring that you can adjust for pressure.

Time to attack the dogbone. With the cradle stretch it puts it pretty close to the strut crossover. The engine and tranny are solidly mounted so this will be as well. Using a Rodney solid dogbone I had previously on I only used one half of it.



Drilled a access hole on the opposite side of the mount

Then bolted the mount in

SOLID !!!!

Love the build Bozzie, I check the construction zone every time I'm on the site just to check it out.

A question for you. Why did you decide to run 2 intercoolers like that? Reason I ask is most twin intercooler setups are small side mounts from the factory that usually get replaced by a larger single FMIC that works better. The only other time you really see 2 intercoolers is when they are each cooling the air from seperate turbos. Not knocking, just curious.

Hi Neil ! Yeah buddy. Was a super sweet car. If I had it longer .......and could get permission id pull a mold off of it !!! But she was in for a fiberglass subwoofer in the passenger footwell. I'll post pics soon !

Good to see you here RCR ! I had a buncha pics backed up, a few more to go and i'll be caught up....with the pics anyway, this build.....someday !! As I would love to get your car / Neils car and some others together someday !

Mr_Corean, Thanks SO MUCH ! Good so see you here and any questions are ALWAYS welcome.....thou yours might give away what my future plans might be !! Its kinda a loaded question. In the Northeast it can get hot and humid , thou not as much as the southern states ! Happiest time to drive is the spring and the fall or at night as the air is cooler and denser and you can feel the difference in power. Probably going overboard this engine is Liquid to Air intercooled under the intake / front mounted cooler , and Air to Air intercooled after the turbo as seen in the rear. Last time she was out the IAT temps were alittle higher than I wanted, especially under higher boost levels for a longer period of time..... hence what ive done to try to rectify it. I definatly could of gotten away with 1 intercooler in the back. The "original" Koenig Competition was twin turbo and dual intercooled.....makes sense as you stated. I twin intercooled this car because..... A...... I wanted it to be to true to the original , at least in that sense .....I might lose a few pounds of boost but the turbo is plenty big enough to make up the difference..... and..... B....... in the back of my head as my mind is always thinking what I can do next......maybe.......just MAYBE..... id love to do a longitudinal setup with dual smaller turbos ......guess I might be on this build for AWHILE longer !!

Here we started out with making the rear of the enclosure. Made it out of MDF because its mostly all right angles on the floor.

Then using a 10" MDF "ring" we mounted it and spread over the enclosure "fleece" and stapled it tight. Just sitting here for now checking for fitment.

You've got an a2w one as well? Looking at the pictures I see piping from the cold side of the turbo going to the right a2a then left a2a before it disappears up in to the engine area. If I'm understanding correctly you have that going up to an a2w and then intake?

Dont want to hijack but for info: the WA intercoolers for the 3800 were originally designed to be sandwiched between the supercharger and lower intake. They can still be used with a turbo setup by gutting the blower rotors or replacing the blower with a normal NA intake. So I guess Bozzie's setup is: turbo-AA-AA-TB-upper intake-WA-lower intake- etc..

Oh, the stock w2a. That makes sense. What kind of pressure drop off do you think you're getting with all these intercoolers? BTW, I was kind of thinking you were eventually going to go twin turbo with the 2 a2a coolers how you have them set up. I think that would be completely badas5!

Bozzie! Just checked....you're only about 7 hours away, and live less than an hour from my friend Glenn (also building the same kit as me). I'll definitely be up for a road trip when I'm done....

With respect to the twin intercoolers, I'm actually putting two in the same spot. Of course mine initially are for a slightly different reason...I need to visually block to opening in front of the rear grills. Without the intercoolers there will be framework visible. Eventually I'll have the new engine with twin turbos (phase III of the project) and the intercoolers will be in the correct position with excellent airflow...but for now...who's gonna know...

Fie Ro ., you are correct. The W2A is under the intake. Ive always had this cooler and its needed also for the spacing between the intake and the header crossover. Intake is custom Stattma.

Neil , Thanks for chiming in ! 7hrs is Nothing That would be great to meet up, I think a few builds might be drivable within each other. Does Glenn have a build on here ? Its great to know there are builds not far from me. Your making me Jealous with your stage 3 Plans ! Building ahead for those plans is defiantly a time saver. Twin A2A Coolers are COOL
