Had Ron Davis build me a radiator with oil cooler built in. The radiator mounts in stock location with stock hardware.

Finished up welding in side marker deletes front and rear. Had a little distoration on both metal and the aluminum front fenders, but not too bad.

Ordered a bunch of fuel lines from our host and re-installed gas tank. I figured probably easier to install now before trans and suspension.

Ran oil lines. Lines go fro oil-am to remote filter to oil cooler built in radiator back to pan. I used a heat shield sleeve near header and built a aluminum line holder mounted to bottom of oil cooler.

Purchased used RH Al Cup one piece Cup wheels. Fronts are 8.5 x 18 56 et offest. Rears are 10x18 54 et offset. Reached out to some members in Rennlist forum for advice on tire size. The front wheels are pushing the boundaries for the 928, but it all worked out with the advise given.
I purchased Hankook V12 tires. Fronts are 235/40-18 and rears are 285/35-18. Everything clears, but I still plan on rolling the fenders before paint, for added clearance. I used my other 928 for mock up.

High Quality Project -

Man - you are seriously moving this build project along at lightening speed.... Typically I'd have it up on jack stands with the hood off by about this time and trying to decide how best to pull the drive train.

Great Documentation -

Michael

Mounted the electronic throttle pedal. Used the stock aluminum 928 mount and welded aluminum plate to it for the throttle assembly to mount to. The fit is very tight at the top where the steering column and firewall meet.

Nice work, thanks for the updates.

Sorry if I missed it but what are you going to do about air-conditioning, skip it or is there an approach in mind?

The car has AC and heat. Just need to get a couple AC lines made up to go from the 928 connections to the GM compressor. The heat is just a valve and new hoses that Renegade provides.

Mounting The LS - ECU

Hey Blagave - I'm not familiar with the LS - ECU but how much heat does this unit generate ? The cooling requirements must be substantial with the number of fins it has showing below the connector plugs. Do you think it may need some air flow to keep the internals comfortable ?

You might mount it on the roof - there should be plenty of air flow up there.

Great Project - Michael

Thank you for pointing this out, it never dawned on me about the heat. I reached out to a engine builder buddy and he said that the ECU gets warm, but never so hot you couldn’t touch it. I am going to take another look and see if I have room to mount in engine compartment

928 passenger foot well -

Hey Blagave - The only reason I mentioned a possible LS - ECU cooling issue is because I had an intermittent ignition problem on my 930 one time that turned out to be self inflicted. I'd sealed up the old style Ignition Unit (left side of engine compartment) inside a sealed metal box thinking that I'd keep the rain out. The Ignition Unit did fine when breathing fresh air and finally settled on some silicon sealant around the connector that straightened out a finicky "Well Hung".

The interior corner of the 928 passenger foot well is pretty well insulated behind the carpet and sound deadening material, but it may not be a problem for the latest modern FI/Ignition controlled electronics.

I sometimes tend to over think things a bit ....

Good Luck, Michael
