Larry, No joy with the Roush Yates guys its all a bit too proprietary, and they are not involved in the Radical stuff so best you contact Radical and see what they have to offer.

Re: H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

Re structuring the bulk head, lots of welding to do here.

This is to sit over the intake pipe.



Then I cleaned up the opening trying to give some access to the front of the engine just incase.




Then to start and weld it all together.



Im adding some vertical stiffener's to the inside that will be tied together below the hole, the hole will have a removable panel that will house the base speaker and if removed allow access to do a belt change etc.





Hope to finish this up tomorrow.

Re: H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

So four hours into today I managed to finish up the welding of the bulkhead reconstruction.




Then turned my attention to creating a window frame aperture, its a little shallower than OEM but will still be sufficient to se out the rear.

Re: H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

So whilst the engine is in place for a while I'm going to work on some exhausts.
Jared had supplied me with some Hookers headers and a whole bunch of 3" pipe and mandrel bends.
In order to at least make a dent in the mountain of pipe I decided to first head off on a forward direction adding a shorty Cat and a 190 bend before heading towards the rear of the car, we wanted to run an X pipe so the only place suitable for this was tucked under the trans.










To be continued

Hi Steve
Any time now that the motor and trans are in, as long as you know where all the big pieces are going to be within the engine bay, and before they are all crammed to permanently in the way. You will also need to know where you want you tips to end up.

Re: H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

Moving on to the charge cooler, the electric pump has been mounted to the bulkhead and ill bend up some aluminum water pipes to carry the water to the cooling rad which will sit over the transmission, It will have cold air ducted from the engine cover and pushed through the rad.

Here is the plenum fabricated up out of 065" and 090" 3003 aluminum, the two holes are for the ducted cold air.

Re: H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

So more of the charge cooler parts coming together, two four inch pipes will get air from within the rear upper wheel arches which are fed cold air from the engine cover scoops.




The water is feed by these 5/8" pipes from the front of the motor to the charge cooler.




Now working on the air filter and intake runner, the air filter is going to be enclosed and ducted from the side scoops

Re: H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

Trying to close in the air filter so as to capture only cool air from the side scoop.





also got the header tank brackets done for mounting to the bulkhead.

Re: H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

Finished up the exhaust tail pipes today, its all a little tight in the rear end, especially when you need to fit in a couple of expensive looking tips.
Oh well expensive or not there was not enough room for them without cutting them in half.
