I can try to contact that client and get the car in, read a part number if you're really interested. He travels a lot, could be a while.

That fueler was non-adjustable. Simple vacuum/pressure diaphragm like a FPR. The lines were crude, like a hand-made part (and probably such small production numbers that it was hand-made.)
I think this is similar to what Lee Rice was doing?

That Andial unit was simple but quite effective for the engines they were doing (3.4L or 3.5L, mild porting, SC cams, Euro heat exchangers, Monty muffler, Garrettson intercooler).

Really don't know if the WUR was stock, either.
Didn't pay that much attention at the time -- I really wanted to convert it all to EFI and really uncork it! A gorgeous red/tan slant with wide 18" dark gold/bronze K28 wheels, sport seats, all-leather interior, 3.4L MM P&Cs, ported heads & manifold & billet blocks, BB headers, lightweight clutch package.

Who copied who... Ruf or Porsche, Porsche or Ruf? Who knows, they're a stone's throw from one another. I'm sure ideas got passed back-and-forth, like it or not. A technician may have started at Porsche and gone to Ruf, or vice versa. Or Langerer & Reich, the IC supplier, may have shared some design and tooling? Dunno. Either way, it's a fairly rare intercooler and worked well. This thing made 370rwhp/370rwtq @ 0.8bar on 91-octane and was fun to drive.
