Nice. What modifications did you have to do to get the radiator to fit up front like that?

MrRPJ I dig the cooling set up. Which Jeep radiator & type of piping are you using? Did you happen to weigh the pipe?

right now in that pic the sump is 140mm from the ground but im changing to a rear hump sump as my cradle doubles up as a bash plate

All up the pipe work was about 4kg I just brought straight lengths and bent them with a mates bender.

oh wow thats way more than it looks yeah, my main reason for wanting to run this pan is i doubt the effectiveness of a stock F body pan for oil control with the engine backwards, whereas this RR pan has oil control baffles for all directions. I was thinking of doing something along the line of these, but for the rear

basically just a small, nylon, high durometer wheel for when the cradle contacts the ground to provide a rolling surface to prevent damage

Interesting. When I tried testing out a radiator in the same location on my 964, even a the small 3rd center radiator on the 996s/boxsters weren't able to fit in that area with the bumper cover on.

I love this build. Can you post some detail photos of your rsr cut out. I've been stuck at the cooling stage of my build for awhile. I actually tried the oem Cherokee radiator but felt it was too big. I was considering welding 2 yamaha rhino radiatoms together. Any pics will be greatly appreciated. I'd also like to know how you avoidea crimping the AL tube. Thanks

Thats the reason for the 993 kit. the 993 front bar has a lot of room behind it

Welding in shorts, that's awesome.

Welding in shorts is probably one of the most Australian things I've seen. You Ausies Rock man!

Funny thing is my brother is huge Jeep guy, and he suggested a Cherokee radiator also, that's sweet that it fits, and that it's big enough to cool that beast powerplant you've got in there.

started reassembly



all finished and bolted up to the Subaru trans and fitted to the cradle



and its in took 25mins to install





Got the GT2 front flares fitted up



and all in

That's looking good there! Getting closer and closer to finishing!

I spy an ARB bull bar... is that one for a Hilux?
