Appreciate the input. The piping shown is being used, however, it was literally at a state of seeing what was going to work. Today i did a lot of grinding and re-welding/ cleaning up, and have come up with this thus far....





Also, the ends are not "rolled", but i did run a weld around the edge. I am lost as to why a short coupler will not work though, as they are long enough to place clamps past the welded beads.

Thanks,

Jim

Default RHD V-mount 1JZ Coupe (a sequel to the prequel)

Ive had regular couplers pop off of SR setups is why i say it. If you running sub 1 bar you will probably be fine i suppose. But if your drifting with this and constantly in it you may find yourself with some headaches.

Im not sure what the final plan for the core support, and hood design will be, but right now the stock metal from the core is blocking a lot of flow. also, the vent in the hood should be designed to create a low pressure area over the intercooler opening. This will cause air to be sucked through the intercooler and make it be much more efficient that just letting the air be pushed through.

something like this is the proper way to make a v mount setup efficient.


deff interested in seeing where this goes. keep up the work dude.

Im not 100% sure how the final setup will play out yet, I was trying to maintain some sort of a factory look to the radiator support, but the center section really isn't aiding any advantages, so i may leave it out and just clean up the ends behind the headlights better, or just take a hole saw to the center piece.

As far as the ducting goes, I have been doing some searching, and thinking, but no idea is set in stone yet. One idea, which is hard to explain, is a panel that runs vertically (but angled) from the lower point of the frame rails, conforms around the top of the rad/back of the IC, and angles up towards the hood vent. Then another piece to box the IC core to the underside of the hood.

Like i said, hard to explain really.
Something like thisminus the divider in the VEE)

I wouldn't run a fan on the intercooler unless you intend on sitting in some serious traffic, and even then its still iffy.

No, I will not be running one on the intercooler, this was just a cheesy diagram I found on an RX-7 forum that had a similar idea. Basically the area of interest is the vertical panels which divert the air out. Simply put, guide intercooler air through the hood vent, guide radiator air underneith the engine.

Also, I have decided to cut out the section behind the headlights, not use the center section of radiator support, and instead, extend the surrounding panels of my radiator to the inner portion of the tubbs....

Pics once progress is made.

So I got a lot done to the front end area. Made some positive changes/alterations.

Pics, in no specific order.

























I decided to add in some tubular supports for the strut tower, as it had a bit more flex than i would like... now that the ducting is squared away, the drivetrain will be coming back out this week to begin working on the areas needing most attention.... DS tub and tunnel.
