Kokeln IC clearance

I'm sure a few of you have a Kokeln IC. My unit appears to almost ride on top of the fan shroud. What sort of clearance is considered "normal"?

When I first received the car, the IC incoming air pipe had a huge gap where it mates with the IC's port (found the big o-ring in three pieces when pulled apart). When we sorted that out and reassembled, the gap between the IC and the fan shroud seemed extremely close.

The more gap I try to get under the IC, the worst the gap becomes on the incoming air pipe to IC. Any tips?

PS: Glad to see the turbo board has arrived!

Mine seems to have enough clearance. How much is there/do you expect?

This doesn't really show the clearance, but gives you some idea of the fitment...

Mine is pretty tight as well. Here's a picture that might be of some help. Pardon the midnight digital photography.

Ayglass, did you rotate the fan strap so the bolt was not at the top? If so, where is the bolt? It looks to be left of center, just above the coil bracket. It that correct? Thanks.
Rooked 930, where is your fan strap bolt located?

I didn't do the Kokeln install, but here's a photo from the first service I did. In the lower right corner you can just see the bolt and it appears to be rotated just left of center. Maybe that's the magic trick to it.

You may need to rotate the strap as some have suggested. However all of the adjustment is done with the dowels going over the intake studs provided with the kit. The intercooler castings changed about 2 years ago when Dwayne sold the company and fittment has not been near the same. Most of the time adjusting the oulet pipe by rotating and carefully setting the dowels will give you the clearance and the angle you need.

I don't have this seal...



That may explain the poor alignment. Would anyone have any part number or info on this seal?

I'm not using that seal either, although I have in the past. Some times you just have to rock it side to side and find the best postion as suggested. I also swapped out my threaded rod for the supports for longer ones. The stock ones just seemed to short. Don't forget to rotate your up pipe from the utrbo to the intercooler to get a good fit.
