Right from Katech in this link. The key thing to note is both out board supercharger radiators also have another set of radiators directly behind them for engine cooling. All four radiators are identical.

So looks like this pic is then accurate. Very good info Ken!

Yup....the low temperature rads are the "supercharger" rads.

It's interesting to note that all four aux rads in the outboard modules are identical but the rear engine cooling ones are twice the price for the same part. This was discovered/discussed on the Corvette Forum.

These supercharger aux rads are a bargain at approx $140 each. (#84484399) grate #84412408

The Improved Racing MHX-520 would be a good candidate as well but are more than twice the price.

The C6 ZR1 center dual pass radiators can be picked up used for $70 each currently.

Here is what they look like.

Here is my C6 ZR1 supercharger radiator. These are plentiful on the Corvette Forum. There are two of them currently being sold for $70 each.

I have started to collect the various fittings for them. The only issue with this approach is the fittings are 5/8" and not 3/4". For max effort a true 3/4" is more desirable.

I had trouble finding all the part numbers on the GM site so concluded the rads In the cheeks were not doubled up and were plumbed like the ZL1. The Mishimoto Intercooler rads I bought were actually pretty reasonable, after discount were like $330 for the pair. Your diagram will come in handy if I do 4 intercoolers, the rear two with fans and the front two in the cheeks.

For anyone building a GT-R ..... I just discovered that the OEM front marker lamps are from a LandRover. The two pictures show an original Ford GT rear marker lamp and a rear LandRover lamp for comparison. They also look identical. Here are the part numbers.

Right front XGC000060
Left front XGC000070

Here are the rear marker lamps but can't confirm they are correct. They do appear so.

Right rear XGC000040
Left rear XGC000050

The stock door pull is shown in the first picture. It is sourced from the same extrusion as used in the second picture. Does anybody have a source for something similar?

Just purchased the needed axle conversion plates for my V10 Graziano. The stubshaft on the V10 graziano does not have the same bolt pattern as the 930 CV joint on the axle. The needed adapter plate is FDPL-3 from the Driveshft Shop. The cost for a pair shipped was a whopping $468.03

These are .630" thick so you need to have your axleshafts shortened by 5/8". I hope Fran is reading this so his customers are given the correct length axles from the start if using the V10 graziano transaxle.

Thanks Ken, did you figure out the exact boltpattern of them? Just so I can compare with my measurements.
The receipt I showed in post #949 mentioned they are 3.75" or 95.25mm. I checked mine and it is spot on. ;)

I'm going to get my reluctor wheel inner diameter opened up slightly and press them on these conversion plates.

Finished up the handbrake module for the GT-R. Ready for powder coating. I designed it to compliment the look of the Tillet seats. It was cut from a 1 foot long section of 2" x 5" rectangular tubing. It includes an easily resettable fuel pump shutoff. It also has a n/c and n/o switch for integration with the ECM/BCM. The Tech2 GM scan tool needs to see that the hand brake has been applied before completing certain tests like a crank relearn.

It turns out these Graziano V10 (KBZ) adapter plates are the same ones installed on my Ricardo stubshafts. The model number is #FDPL-3

Finally got around to building the tow eyelet for just in front of the windshield. I'll bolt it in place once the spider is back on. Definitely overbuilt it with 1/4" plate and six 7/16" fasteners :p
