I'm installing twin triple loop coolers. Each are made from two coolers. The Elephant Racing under hood crossover lines are installed. The cooler on the left is still in two parts. The cooler tubes will be cut in the area of the red lines and threaded male fittings silver soldered on like the 73RS loop cooler. Then it's time to fit the connecting hoses.

Setting up the plumbing and electronics for the inline vent/heat fans. I ran a fan for an hour today. Zero heat build up. The white fuse is 8 amps. The fans can take 25. The limiting factor is the controllers. I think they are set up for 5. I'll never need even half of that. That's a aluminum block holding the fan down. It almost wasn't enough. The Zenith 42 mm butterfly's will regulate how much air goes to the windshield.

Here are a couple updated pictures.
Vent fan controllers are behind a radio delete plate.
Under hood carpet is in and fitted to the crossover tubes.

I covered up some wood and the hole for the antennae today. I think the leather gives the interior a cleaner look. I still have the original wood wheel and the Porsche crest shift knob if I want a different look. The doors get new hinge bushings Monday. This stay home or in my shop thing is allowing me to get a bunch of 912 projects crossed off the list.

I went for a short drive in the car today. It ran well. I'm looking forward to a run in the mountains tomorrow. I can't wait.

The duel oil coolers have made a big difference. The oil temp just sits at 200 degrees. The return line is actually cool after it passes through the two coolers. The car is running a constant 75 to 80 pounds of oil pressure. With about 15 quarts and two coolers the thermostat regulates the temp really well. Before I would see 215 to 220 in similar driving. We'll see what happens when it's 95 degrees with 15% humidity. For now I'm stoked

Received my Rebel Racing Boxster adapters today to go along with my JimmyT 3.0 to 3.5 caliper adapters for SWB front suspension cars.
Everything fits. I'm hoping the offset is right. We'll see.

I started with one loop cooler. Then I had a single Carrera cooler on the passenger side for a few years. It just didn't look right to me. It's more aesthetics than function. The loop coolers just looked more vintage to me on my 67 and adding another one on the drivers side has made a difference. I just replaced the guts of the inline SC thermostat at the same time. I can run the car on a 90 degree day with 15% humidity and the oil temp just hangs at 190. We'll see what the temps are when I pound up 12,000 foot passes here in Colorado.

By the way, I had a 120C oil temp sensor in my car for the last 8 years. It should have been a 150C sensor. When I thought I was running 230F it was more like 205F. I'm guessing hammer time in the mountain passes will be maybe 210 to 220F. I used to back off when I thought the car was running 230F plus.

Next project for both my and Doug's dual oil cooler POLO cars.
This Mocal thermostat opens all the way at 200F not like the engine and SC ones that opens at 180-190F. Mocal makes a 180 and a 200F thermostat. That way the car only operates on the passenger side cooler past 180ish, and then both coolers fully after 200F.
Green - 180-200F
Red --- 200F plus fully open
The thermostat starts to open and close around 200F progressively as are the engine and SC thermostat. The point is it's doing it's thing 20F warmer.

I got my parts from BAT. Waiting on the threaded pieces that get welded to the tubes from Elephant Racing. I think I'll have the tubes replated in clear (silver).

We've decided not to use the soft lines. We will weld on an12 steel parts and go with an12 duel female pieces. Now the whole install is only about 8 inches and much stiffer.

I'm glad your enjoying the thread. I just did a 2 day road trip in Colorado's high country. 5 or 6 passes over to Gunnison and back. About 550 to 600 miles. On the way over I had lunch in Crested Bute. I had the car over 120 several times. As it's past the fall colors the traffic was very low. The drive from Delta to Carbondale will be one I'll never forget. Going up McClure Pass I didn't see another car. On the turns I could see up the road I could use the whole road. What a blast! I went over Vail pass at over 110. It was fun indeed. Here are a couple pictures of Cottonwood Pass. These are a couple years old. This time around they had resurfaced the west side and it was as smooth as silk.

I was on the phone with Dean and he mentioned a project he is involved with. It's a company out of Culver City. They are building 12 912's that are kind of like a 912 Singer. My understanding is they are using Dean's short or long block as a base for the engine. Dean is under the impression they are developing a 4 valve head for the engine. If that comes to fruition I might see if I can get a set for my engine. It also has some kind of 6 speed transmission. Dean believes the first 2 have been sold for $750K. I hope so. If that's the case I'm glad I built the first one. Maybe not to this level but a heck of a nice car for sure.
