      still messing with the AWIC, got few more bends and they sent me a wrong 90 degree reducer but its almost there. just need a stainless pipe, have it bead rolled and thats all I need. got the heat exchanger and I can make two brackets to mount it to a radiator. pump for it will prolly go under the fender somewhere.



      radiator coolant hoses need to be removed as I need MK3 ones. I was putting in that oil restrictor I got from atp, not sure why the thing was such a pain to thread in but I got it in there somehow, I think i might have messed up the threads so I will have to wait to see if it leaks. but I think my oil feed line is fudged too. nothing was going right for me last night, pinched my finger too. haha

      What temp sensor are you using?

      You'll have damn near 90 psi going through that line. I hope you teflon taped it. I had to use an adapter to for my restrictor. The feed hole was way bigger then the male end of the restrictor. Lucky i had the adapter & the 90* fitting.

      You can barely see it but i had to screw in the adapter then the restrictor.

      Stewart Warner gauges and sensor. I gotta take everything off at some point to have it ceramic coated. I used a restrictor from ATP and a 90 degree fitting.

      swapped the subframe today, it pushes the radiator towards the front a lot. I dont think I have much space for heat exchanger and fans. it was getting late so I didnt had much time to fiddle with it. oil cooler heat exchanger will have to be relocated. radiator support needs trimming too. lots of work left to do but im not giving up.

      I did had a dream the other night that I was driving the car and was just enjoying the turbo noise when I ran across a bunch of raised manhole covers, waking up screaming "oil paaaaan!" LOL

      You should. I fit my 3" thick IC between the bumper & rad. You could even use a smaller one that can be mounted to the rad itself.

      ok made a small bracket to mount a AWIC heat exchanger to the radiator. its not flow waterjet cutting but it works for me.



      mounted to the radiator, has just enough clearance between the two of them.



      two slim fans, I mounted them a bit lower so they dont hit the SRI. hope that doesnt mess with cooling.


      mounted to the radiator support.


      I still need to fit a fan in front of the heat exhcanger and figure where to mount a oil cooler.

      2 "3 fans mounted towards the top will do fine

      I will figure it out, if I can trim the bumper a bit thats what I will do. I know rad support is gonna need some work too.

      some cutting, drilling, bending, welding and I have a little bracket for the AWIC. once I installed it I kinda looked at it and now im worried that maybe I shouldnt have it bolted this firmly to the body when engine will have some movement.



      Pics where taken at night with iphone 4s and its own flash. blue hoses look so weird.

      tried every possible way but I cant use that heat exchanger. it just gets in the way. ordered a short 7" HE thats double the thickness and 7" fans. I meassured behind the bumper and should be able to fit it. too bad I cut up my rad support a lot. hah

      Hey your set up is looking great! Got a question about your awic. Which one did you buy from frozen boost?

      This one:

      http://www.frozenboost.com/product_i...89807e17541b12

      Or this one?

      http://www.frozenboost.com/product_i...89807e17541b12

      Thanks in advance!

      the second one, comes with bigger awic core and bigger HE. I would meassure and re-meassure your spaces so you dont end up buying stuff that wont fit. I have two HE type 100 that atleast one of them I wont be able to fit so I ended up buying another one.

      Yeah, I have the same x-member set up as you, even have the same solid mount! Which smaller HE did you go with?

      The 2" thick one:

      that one is smaller but thicker so its about the same capacity. I would still meassure your clearances first, if youre using mk2 crossmember then you might be able to use the taller HE. as long as youre not planing on doing a short runner manifold you should be good. with your setup you have a lot of room in between the radiator and bumper. I ended up changing the crossmember to passat and mk3 radiator which pushed it away from engine to clear the SRI but not I lost that space for HE and have to go with shorter one so it fits under the bumper area. take your time figuring it out and plan ahead.

      I have 16v Passat motor cross member with passat lower rad support and the mk3 rad along with an SRI. There isn't much room there.

      ohh ok, I thought you had a mk2 crossmember with corrado rad like I did at begining. if you want to wait till I try mine out you can but that is the only option at this point.

      something is going on with photobucket so pics might not show up. I havent had much time to do anything but I did get the new shorter heat exchanger. mounted it with fans, might have to redo the fan mounting but its ok for now.



      practicing welding, im getting better even tho I have a $100 Hobart welder.


      made a bracket to secure both of the radiators together.



      bracket almost finished just some final touches and it will be done.



      as it sits right now, had to change the elbows on boost piping so coolant bottle had to go as it gets in the way now.


      new coolant bottle, 3" round and 7" tall.



      thats all for now, more to follow.

      spent a whole day making one friggin bracket. lol




      I might try to make a washer fluid reservoir and fit in this space here. I do want to have that, kidna sucks without.



      while removing the harness broke the damn connector, lucky me I have a spare harness.

      The 2 in the rubber boots are just plain old female spade connects like so -



      and the other one is a special spade connect with a clip, IIRC, you can use a narrower female spade connect for it though like so



      this will save you from having to solder or depin anything

      yeah the one that broke off is that weird square connector, the other ones are easier to repair. I will fix it not a problem just a retarted unwanted problem when I have a whole list of items to do! I just need to get this thing finished so I can focus on interior and getting it back on road. I havent touched the MK4 project in like 10 months.
