WOW!

Awsome stuff m8. :blush:

But that turbo can produce some lag I think. :unsure:

After lag you will feel a truck crashing in your back.... :whistling:

Oh... I killed my IS200T a bit today.

We damaged the fuel pressure regulator.

So the car hardly started and didn't even run any more.... DA*N! :angry:

Now I'm forced to rebuild it finally to a return-system then it should fly. :D

"UPDATE" i set out today to fit the oil cooler.

well to start of with i could not get the old oil-filter of :angry: but i got it of in the end, then when i went to fit the oil-filter adaptor that was ok untill i went to put the filter on..............i could not fit it as there was not much space, in the end up i had to take the adaptor of put the filter on the adaptor and then put it on as one :yawn:

then i had to put the cooler some where :crying: not alot of places i could put it as my cooler is the long one, so i put it just at the back of the RAD at the bottom and i have cut some vents into the uderbody :whistling: to get lots of cool air to it :)

i will try and get some pic,s in a day or 2

Marcus which oil cooler are you using, why not mount the oil cooler behind the upper grill like i have on the race car, the oil cooler on the Monster is mointed between the intercooler and the radiator, but the HKS coler is thin but tall.

a misconception about coolers is they have to be in the airflow, obviously this is ideal but not always needed. If u intend keeping the cooler where itis, can i suggest you make up some duting and channel some cool air to it

Hi matt, yea i was going to put behind the upper grill but the st/st hose i got was only 3ft 3" me thinking that would do it when i got them ;) i did try but the cooler i have is the long and fat one, so would not fit any way

i will keep it where it is and make some duting so i can get lots of cool air to it :winky:

Thanks any way matt for your in put :D
