Hi,

I "bent" the intercooler on Bryan's old 911 for 3 reasons:
1. My old source for the core I used to use in this application went out of business and I had to use larger cores (better in the end)
2. Get said bigger cores to fit inside Ducktail while working around the CIS (no relocation of CIS at all)
3. I thought it would look cool, a different way to get more cooling capacity,kinda 993 Turbo-ish. Make people scratch their heads, glance and it and think, "Huh? What's going on there?"

There's room to do this with the Carrera intake manifold, too, and there's plenty of room for the AFM if you use that. Pressure sensing is superior, but more costly. If you try long distance tuning with Protomotive, invest in an Innovate LM-1 and give him full datalogs. Otherwise, modern programmable ECU that's open, no proprietary code.

The rear valence venting was for cosmetics (RS/race car style) but mostly function: get heat out so the fiberglass bumper wouldn't melt away, relieve air pressure that builds up in back of car, and look cool. Slow going with air saws and die grinders, but not difficult.

A really fun car, one I would like to own.
