WHILE the engine was at Powerhouse getting built, we fitted a dummy motor to the car so we could make up all of the intercooler piping, ready for the engine dyno. Adam Rogash and the boys at MPW in Dandenong mounted up the Plazmaman intercooler and then made the stainless pipes to suit my forward-facing plenum and exhaust manifold.
As you can see by the photos, we went through the guards on either side and down and around into either side of the ’cooler. With the way we’ve mounted the intercooler, it doesn’t hang down below the front bumper at all, so it’s pretty stealthy.
While we were on the tools, we also mounted the Turbosmart Race Port blow-off valve and 45mm Hypergate HP external wastegate. With this boost management hardware we can run north of 30psi, so I’m hanging out to see the whole thing together on the engine dyno and making power.
