      Thought I'd throw some pictures up here since many of you don't venture into the Mk. IV forum.

      If you've got any questions or comments, fire away.

      I love that there is no silicone in that bay.

      Truth be told, there will be 3 pieces of silicone... but they won't be handling any air.

      I'd like to know where you got the sandwich oil cooler plate with shorter tube and cap. I need to do something like this to give me some space since I'm using mk3 style engine mounts in my current project.

      it's looking good !

      I always wanted to do a twin turbo setup, never had the funds to do it (or even a single turbo for that matter). I'm really curios about that inter cooler, at least thats what it looks like.
      How will it get cool air to flow through it? Hood scoop like a Sti?

      Maybe I'm just a n00b with turbo stuff.
      Definitely keep us posted.

      From my understanding, only reason to go twin turbo is to spool much faster while retaining the volume of air a really big turbo will give you...

      That said, why do you still have a FWD trans in there...

      Contact Dubnutz in Long Island, NY. It's a Mocal piece and I got it from them, great people to deal with!

      That part is the chargecooler for the air-to-water setup that the car will be using. This chargecooler is made by Driversport and has the reservior included in it. The coolant will be pumped by a Bosch water pump through the front mount (which is an Earl's part and pictured above attached to the rad support) then back up to the chargecooler.

      You got it Ron. I didn't want to wait for power and wanted a fat mid-range since I'll be driving the car on the street. I know I've sacrificed some top end but there is always room for bigger turbos to even it all out if need be.

      I want to do an AWD conversion at some point... maybe when I win the lottery.

      Quick question. What fitting is that you're using to connect the braided lines from the heater core to the coolant flange on the block?

      I know you can use the IE SAI block off plate on the back of the motor with an NTP to AN fitting threaded in. But the coolant flange piece I've been curious about. I have the firewall AN fittings for the heater core, just haven't installed yet.

      I believe that Greg (Driversport) modified the OEM coolant flange by deleting the top port and then welding a -whatever AN fitting to the bottom port.

      Thanks for the comments guys.

      That'd make sense, but isn't the tstat housing plastic? So how would it attach/thread in. THat's what I'm trying to figure out. And if it's something one off I need to convince Greg to make me one so I can get the braided lines on my car as well.

      yeah..if you look..he's got a piece of silicone off the thermostat housing..then the metal piece is pushed into the silicone, with the AN fitting welded to the metal piece.

      Ah caught it now. I couldn't tell wtf that was behind the fitting...silicone makes sense though. I suppose that's one option.

      We need to get a company on board with reproducing the housing in metal like they did for the 1.8t guys. THen we could weld on a fitting...hmmmm

      costs too much to make the thermostat housing in billet..gruvenparts has been "working" on one for a while. there's not enough demand, to be honest.

      the way that driversport did it is pretty nifty though, i'd be interested if they wanna sell me one.

      I don't even need to answer anything in this thread! You guys are much smarter than you give yourselves credit for. And as I said earlier, there are only three pieces of silicone in the bay.

      I remember when Gruvenparts started working on the T-stat housing. I don't know if we'll ever see it.

      Unfortunately, for now I can't reveal my sources for the parts being spoken about. I'm completely being "that guy" but I was sworn to secrecy until the car is shown.
