Yes was thinking that, im leaning towards less silicone for this project, ive had too many bits fall off this car while driving already

Well the thing moving makes the hoses come off the TB or up pipe and the engine quits. If its held down onto the pipes and kept in place, the hose clamps dont have too much work to do other than to keep boost pressure in. With this type of sealing system, the o-ring to silicone there is less "hold" onto the pipes and TB than normal. If the IC is held down onto them well you'll be fine. Might have to do a little fab work or adjusting. Call Chris at turbokraft, he could guide you through this. He's busy so don't waste all his time but hes very nice and helpful. Good luck

Just a thought but The fabspeed IC uses 3 ply silicone on both sides of the cooler. I have one in here now making almost 500Hp and no hoses have blown off yet....

I'm sure it's bolted down securely too?
Congrats on the nice hp number

yes the cooler is secure. The bracketry is key to keeping those hoses in place for sure

i did the IC conversion on my '76 930, no problem. I did upgrade to the 3.3 intake manifold though since all of the bosses line up perfectly for what ever type of IC you choose to use. Since you are using the stock OEM unit the process is quite easy.

As far as hosing is concerned I have used Intercooler Pipe Fabrication - Silicone Intake Systems Auto Parts
They have an excellent selection of high pressure rubber fitting as well as various stainless pieces (straight, angled, etc.) plus loads of high strentgh clamps, a great source for very reasonable prices.

Get in touch if you need amore hands on help - henrymfisher@comcast.net

To do this correctly you'll need a 3.3L intake manifold and BOV. You will also need to modify the 3.3L up-pipe if you have a stock 3LDZ as they are different on the 3.3L engine. It's not as easy as you would think due to all the small differneces adding up.
If I were doing this I would build a custom intercooler and retain everything 3.0L.

Haha my punchbowl is empty

rotated tb makes it all work, the tb linkage from pedal is easily lengthened
