I'm still not sure about the sheet metal thing. Maybe it works, idk.
From what Ive read air will flow through the easiest path possible. Having a gaping hole on the drivers side will cause the air to flow through there instead of through the radiator/oil cooler. Read a thread on it somewhere ill see if I can find it.I'm still not sure about the sheet metal thing. Maybe it works, idk.
I also talked with Blackworks about the downpipe and they said to send it back and they would replace it. Ill be sending that out tomorrow and once they receive it they already have one thats tested to fit a turbo ready to send back to me.
Yeah when I sent him the pictures he said that the fabricator forgot to (cant remember the word he used lol). I did buy the setup close to a year ago and I think thats when BWR had just started making the manifolds so I think they were still working out the issues at the time. He said they would replace it with another one so I guess well see what the newest downpipes have done to them.i think they need to add dimples to the dp to allow the nut to fasten
I was in the same boat with this one not very many reviews just a reputable brand name intercooler at a great price. Ill take some pics here shortly.could you take a picture of the inside of the end tank of that intercooler? I've been thinking about getting the smaller Vibrant 12800 intercooler for my boost build with little to no reviews on the cooler. Although Vibrant makes top notch stuff and I'm willing to take a shot with it at only $166 shipped.
This build is coming along nicely, I'm excited to see when you get everything put together! =D
Yeah thats as far over as I went also with the radiator.Love the progress Justin! Radiator placement looks spot on. That passenger side, high-beam adjuster for the headlight became my "limit" when I moved my half rad like you have. It sure does free up a lot of room for the Turbo stuffs though.
I was thinking another option for the downpipe would be a V-band connection, but iz more $.
Yeah thats what I was planning on doing so the air would funnel down to the radiator.I would suggest going with option 2, with that being said you should angle the sheet metal towards the rad, have driver side pushed forward and passenger side pushed in, that way you're directing the air flow to the rad instead of it hitting a flush wall and dispersing in whatever direction it can.
Hmm that might work. I havent spent too much time looking at how exactly I want to place the sheet metal but I am thinking the best spot for the oil cooler would be on the drivers side down low. Going to figure out that part today.Coming along nicely. The turbo setup looks great, and great idea for the Accord tank.
Suggestion on the sheetmetal if you put one on: Maybe a piece of sheetmetal, angled towards the radiator, with louvers in it that would allow air to flow to the turbo as well?
