the filler/cap would be needed to place in a high point in the system to make it easy to fill. The barbs with the required threads seem to be hard to source locally (and much more pricey), so buy the ones you need.

cheers

awesome cheers for all the info guys been wanting to do this upgrade as my intake temps are a bit too high, but all in due time I guess as I still have to get my new turbo and some more $$$ first.
looks like it will take a bit of work, but it'd definitely be worth putting in the time and doing it right from the start. yeah wouldn't mind have a look at your setup sometime pat if you don't mind!

Can be done still having AC but custom work
My old air con radiator with the brackets made to hold the A/W radiator. Used factory bolts to hold the brackets.

BTW thats my old radiator that i kept so as to use it for measurements

Bracket to hold the Bosch water pump.
Its going between the windshield water resivour and bumper bar up front.
only drill holes ill be doing , tapped threads...........





Final resting stop . Please excuse my fingers



THE BRACKETS


BUMPER OFF SHOWING THE AIR CONDITIONER RADIATOR


CLOSE UP WHERE THE BRACKET WILL BE.
See those 2 little screws , they hold the guts of the radiator and go all the way through . In actual fact they have still about 5 mm of travel on the back My brackets are 4 mm thick with the section where the screw is rebated down to 2 mm


BRACKET IN PLACE


BRACKET IN PLACE OTHER SIDE


A/W RADIATOR IN PLACE MINUS THE HORNS


DONE :) Now have to wait till new year so as i can get some hoses made


Here is the water hose i got made that joins the Radiator to the pump and aluminium pipes for the A/W intercooler set up

Just FYI
Ihave the jigs for the front hoses as its one big one cut in 2 and wouldn't be more than $80 , just need the same intercooler set up ( mine is a Rogues one , but im sure that PWR could copy it )
and the 2 pain lines in aluminium , the bender still has the drawing but you need all the brackets.

BUT as you said it took a long time and im still not finished.

any thoughts on mounting a cooler vertically like this:
http://www.mr2oc.com/showthread.php?t=411302&page=1&pp=30
(check the later posts on the first page)

Im wondering if it would be ok to mount one of these:

Vertically with the inlet at the top and outlet at the bottom (water), cause it might be an easier fit than trying to put it above the air filter like usual.

The orientation of the core should not affect its performance, as long as you can bleed all the air out of the water jackets etc for maximum efficiency.

Cheers

what about the addition of the extra 2 90deg bends? Would that be much of a problem?

Can you post some pics and details of how much cutting and any other mods to get the H/E to fit up front with A/C
