Also I was driving to see the boys at Nvauto and I seen a gc impreza on top of another car scrap yard ! so I found the rims I wanted for a steal 250. So I sent them out to the sand blasters to get ready for the powder coating. I'm thinking world rally blue color for the rims

I don't know where I can put a intercooler in this car

 

I fit one from a Saab 9000 in the front of my GL-10 wagon. Inlet and outlet go under the lower radiator support, may be a clearance issue for you once lowered. I deleted the AC condenser, the hood latch, and put holes through the 86 front bumper behind the license plate to let some airflow through. I also had to trim the inside of the grill a bit so it wouldn't rub. I'd take pictures, but I'm 2,500 miles away from the car. If I can fit that in, you can fit a normal size one in.

 

It was this intercooler: 16" tall x 25" wide, more at the inlet and outlet.

You, sir, have great taste in motors AND cars! (I love the P1800 but especially the TR6!)

 

And this is the blueprint for my swap in a 91 Loyale (albeit, without the turbos ;) )

 

Keep up the good work!

Nico,

 

This may be for another thread but do you have any future plans for your XT6? A build of some sort?

 

If not, have you done anything to it yet and if so, what? Thanks!
