How much to do the water to air ic?

No idea. It was in the car when I bought it. They had modded the stock intercooler to take water. I figured this was a bit dumb so I made a heat exchanger for the front of the car from a Triumph Dolomite Sprint radiator.

UPDATE - the car is now complete and is ready for the track. The dyno tune went well and if anything the car ran too cool! Luckily it was a cold night, as the intercooler wasn't working. It's fixed now though - it was a bad electrical connection to the coolant pump.
I have entered a regularity event at Eastern Creek South circuit on the 29th of September. I'll be treating it like a test day. Hopefully the car will finally be reliable! I'm really looking forward to it. It's been a long hard road to get to this point.

Nice work.
If you need a hand let me know.
Can you provide more detail on the event?

Thanks mate. Appreciated.
Send an Email to charles@jardine.net.au to get the details. Only experienced drivers can enter. You will be fine. Just introduce yourself and tell him how much track driving you have done. It's a regularity event so isn't a race as such.

The car went very well today. Lots of power though the 3 year old tyres showed their age.
No overheating this time. Yay!
I'm very rusty though. I need a lot more track time to get my modjo back

Nice work. Did you compete in the AASA round or the North circuit?

South circuit. It was an event organised by the Festival of Sporting Cars.
Here are some vids. Unfortunately I forgot to turn the camera on in the last session when the camera was in the cabin.

Looks like a fun little track.
Just checked your times on natsoft. http://racing.natsoft.com.au/635420360/object_10285456.94R/View?6
Your best time was a 1.09.00, top third of the field too. Good effort there but you will have to work harder to beat those pesky MX5's..

New tyres will do the trick
