Parts for the turbo build have started flowing and Iíve started the mock up. Hereís one of the two side intercooler radiators (the water cooling rad).

Air will enter here

And exit here (the gap between the outer fender and tail light

Iím a little bummed about the weight, theyíre probably 25lbs a piece. Iíll have close to 100lbs in my intercooler system including the water. All in all Iím probably adding 200-250lbs to the car in engine, turbos and cooling, so far Iíve found about 40lbs in steel that I was able to remove. Hopefully I can find some more. I still need to remove the HVAC system under the dash, anyone know what that weighs?
