Stock Replacement Intercooler Install

Installed my stock replacement intercooler on a gorgeous low mile M505 today. This collector quality car requires bolt-on enhancements that work with the stock equipment. No mods to any other supporting parts are allowed. It was a great opportunity to fitment test my intercooler on another 930. I found a couple of very minor things that I will change going forward. The goal is to bolt the replacement intercooler on without removing anything but the stock intercooler. A 15 minute job.

Brian. . . is there no room for the IC thinkess to go above the AC compressor?
If not. . .

What do you consider more efficiant IC, thicker but not go all the way across. . . .or thinner and be able to go above the AC compressor?

Interested to hear any performance (cooling) figures from the new IC.
I like the idea of being a 'bolt on' replacement but am also interested in the performance improvement over stock?
Looks good installed
regards

Ben

The emphasis for this design is stock replacement fitment. The core is the same type as OEM but is twice as thick. It takes up all the space available without modification to existing parts in the engine bay.
Yes there is an M18 bung located near the throttle body. It can be used for a variety of things such as boost measurement (using a stock sending unit), injection, whatever. What you don't see are a variety of 1/8NPT bungs on the underside, also for use with monitoring equipment or boost sending units as needed to run other applications. I include plugs and barbed fittings for the NPT bungs.
I ran this unit on my car with a 965 BOV and used a stock boost sending unit plugged into that 18M bung to feed the LM-1.
I am working on a design for a full bay unit but do not know how the A/C condenser will impact the cooling ability of the intercooler. It would be of questionable benefit to have half of the intercooler under the stock shroud and the other half with hot air blowing through it from the condenser. If anyone knows how hot the condenser gets I'm all ears (my car does not have one so I cannot measure it).
As always I will offer these to our host once we have some longevity data with no issues.

Thanks Brian. . . .maybe for data-logging purposes you could do some air temp reading before and after cooler of the stock unit and then on your new twice as thick unit. Sounds good!

Looks great, Brian. I really like the sensing options. Concerning the A/C condenser, would it be possible to cut power to the A/C compressor clutch when the intercooler sees boost? I'd expect that the incoming air would cool off the condenser pretty fast. Not a complete fix, but A/C is a compromise that many folks want.

Yeah, in Texas an AC delete on a street car is a no-go IMO.
