Yeh, thankfully not too high though, all still fits under the bonnet with no modifications.Hi tuflux..... yes i looked at all the pictures and you can notice its a little higher...... so does the intercooler have water pumped thru it ?
was the difference noticable / worth the money ?
how much more boost can you run ?
how much was the intercooler kit all up ?
Thanks again for the compliments. That's the way, it is always good to do something different. Plus the torsen has proven to be a pretty descent centre for myself thus far.WOW.... ive see lots'o'mods aeound but yours takes the cake....... Ive spent literally hundreds of hours on line seaching thru forums and part numbers trying to be able to put a Supra LSD centre in my '99 LS..... but thats noth'in..... although it appears no one in the world has put an LSD Torsen2 in a '99 LS so i'm on a mission......
I am about to do the same to my 1992 4Runer, only I'm runnng a GM M90 supercharger. Just waiting for my intercooler from Bullet.
I had a custom alloy radiator and resivour made by Leisure Coast Welders at Albion Park NSW for the intercooler. They will also be fabricating a 4 row crossflow aloy radiator. They only use Australian made cores.
I am using a Bosch water pump, the same one they use in the A2W intercooler on the superchaged Mustangs.
I have a Haltech Platinum Sports 2000 ecu with new complete wireing loom.
Should be getting it underway mid October.
Your Lux is very neat and tidy, its a credit to you mate.
And remember "When in doubt POWER OUT "
Sounds like a pretty cool project you have happening there. Be sure to put some pics up on here too.I forgot, I'm putting a 2000 model Prado disc brake rear end in also.
You should be able to drop one into yours as the Lux and Prado share the same running gear.
Have a look........
Thanks. Yes, the main part of the intercooler is mounted beneath the supercharger. Probably a bit hard to see in the photos, but if you compare the pictures to the previous ones you should be able to see the difference. Price wise, I'm not really sure, I try not to think about things like that, haha, but would have to imagine it is somewhere around there, could all be done cheaper, but I like to have everything done how I want it, so usually ends up a tad more expensive.
Yes, I'm keen to see what kind of difference we can make with it also. As for the prices, you have to keep in mind it is not exactly a common engine to modify so to me you would have to expect things to be a little pricey. But at the end of the day, they are a business and do have to keep themselves afloat.
Yes sir, I understand they are a business and demand is limited so the community should be should be thankful even such parts are produced. At the same time it makes me sad to realize that it truley does take deep pockets to get sig. gains out of this engine. Like I said, i can't wait to see the power differences with the lower intake temps, best of luck(from seeing your work, i don't think you need luck, haha) .
Reason for the change to the automatic is because I will be competitively drag racing the car. After having already destroyed a manual first pass out when the supercharger was newly installed, I opted for the more consistent and reliable choice.Show car quality workmanship. Very nice.
Noticed the change of the throttle inlet tubing. Like it.
Why the change to the automatic?
