For my conversion I was not impressed. I was able to stick a Stock D90 petrol Rad in and put a nice thick Ricer intercooler in front of it.. There are no plastic tanks to be seen anywhere..

Still a big step from my series III rad and Saab 900 IC I imagine though.

Could be.. The problem is that the rad is very tall.. I could dig one out and send it to you for a gander if you like. You're going to the rally? You buy the beer.

Yes on the rally. Still playing with ideas on the rad/IC, I think my Rockware 8274 bumper is really blocking airflow at highway speeds. I am considering redrilling it for a low profile winch and taking a plasma cutter to all the extra steel up front, like this.

Well, then take the easy way out: water to air IC.

Yes, it involves a pump and cooler/fan but more manageable in the end and more efficient.

Perhaps before cutting up you bumper you could try a scoop under the bumper to see if it makes a difference. Not perminent but I could see a lot of air moving under the truck and if you "gathered" some of it with said scoop you might find there isn't a difference and you IC may be just a bit too small.

Kev, are you having overheating issues or do you just want a bigger intercooler?

Actually I don't know if I really have an issue at all, I'm just cautious with the engine transplant I guess. Around town it sits a 180 or so. On the trail the same except for climbing to 200 at the end of a steep climb then it drops off fast with the 16" electric 2500 cfm fan. On the highway it stays at or just below 200 if the outside temp is moderate and climbs to 210 on a long grade. When it gets warm out, 70's and up, it runs 205 to 210 at highway speed and I got to 220 at the top of some of those ridiculous hold it to the mat hills on VT100 last weekend.

Is you fan not automatic? My fan "can" control the temperature to anything on minimum speed. And I have most of my radiator blocked by a winch.

Has anyone tired a water misting system yet? I used to have one on TT Supra and I like it.

I picked one up.. Looks pretty nice but it's going to require some work to make it fit i think. Might be a good time for you if your truck is still apart up front.
I'm thinking I'll want to use a push out grill to make it fit. but you could make fit without one.

Hey Keith, let me know how it goes. I've got the 200Tdi coming, so of course I'm looking at a bigger intercooler.
