We work on the V-mount radiator and intercooler setup, building a bunch of cool one off parts to make it all work perfectly. Easily the best fab work I've ever done. Came out great!

lmao duuuuuude wtf were you thinking with that radiator cut and patch job?? you should have just cut a bench into the pipe so it covered the open side of the radiator without having to patch it with plate, which would have also allowed you to make use of more internal diameter of the pipe. ur fuckin killin me here

Just some helpful tips and tricks, have you looked into Cleco fasteners? For lack of better explanation, these are removable rivets. I use these almost daily in my line of work, these assist in clamping pieces in place during mock up of mounts, panels etc. I know jegs sells them ( part number 555-80406) with the pliers or various other companies sell them in singles so you can buy in bulk. Hope you find these helpful!

I'd be soo angry if someone hit the front of the car and damaged the radiator. Just knowing how much time and effort has gone into simply making the radiator and mounts not to mention everything else that has gone into the build so far.

Great build Taylor. Really good to see all the effort put into the build. I would suggest maybe having the v mount with some rubber mounts to stop any vibration cracking the alloy mounts.

This looks sick. Definitely one of the best looking engine bays I've seen in a while. Vip status for sure. And the way you set up the intercooler and radiator so they don't get heatsoaked but still look wicked was 200iq. You are without a doubt my favorite youtube car channel. Big up by dude.

Awesome work, what happens if you bust the radiator or intercooler however? Will be a lot of fab work to replace, are there no oem off the shelf parts that fit with minimal modification?

When you sand aluminum, spray the belt with a little oil, it'll keep the sand from getting clogged up as quick

I literally can accomplish nothing all day at work and watch one of your videos and get the biggest feeling of accomplishment for doing absolutely nothing. It's insane but I love it lmao.
Not gonna lie, I don’t understand how this is a better option than the AN setup. I feel like those welded pipes could fail too and that’ll be harder to fix than to keep a surplus of AN lines with you.

Having threads is not a good idea. They strip pretty easy. Better drill out bigger hole and put a nice high quality insert thread. ( speaking for the Inter-cooler support bolting up to the aluminum blocks to the radiator.). Are you making any bumper ducting to the V mount setup, mean have you planned already something, just curious of the design?

Tip from the Pro's Taylor; Buy a damn Drill Press; www.harborfreight.com/10-in-12-speed-bench-drill-press-63471.html. Hand drilling is just bad practice unless absolutely required by space issues. And get some of these; www.harborfreight.com/3-piece-titanium-nitride-coated-high-speed-steel-step-drills-91616.html.

@TaylorRay watch some @boostedlifestyle he uses some channel lock wire crimp pliers to make some bead rolls ive use them myself wirk pretty well when you can't fit the material in the bead roller. I prefer this roll over a bead of weld

I have a question, won't the heat from the radiator heat soak the intercooler? being a fabricator myself I've learned the aluminum is very well at absorbing heat, I'm not here to be an A-hole I'm just genuinely asking a question 🤷

Loving this build, it's a neat car and a good engine that can take a lot of a abuse when built right (which you do seem to be doing). Only concern, are the rad and intercooler going to be ok with hard mounting like that? I know you want it to be reliable, and ally does have a tendency to fatigue. That rad isn't going anywhere, but is the intercooler mounting to the top of the rad going to be alright? Would be tempted to put some rubber washers on all the intercooler mounts to absorb a little vibration for a little peace of mind.

Taylor, as a 15 yr career machinist I'm begging you; please dont wear gloves around rotating equipment. That sander would seem like something to wear gloves like that with but if anything gets caught between the belt and wheels from your glove it will pull you in. And the way you talk about wanting a lathe and mill I wanted to clear that bad habit up now. Would love to teach you the basics on machining when you get your equipment

Greetings o/ Is that the Milwaukee BS 125 deep cut band saw you've got there? Does it come with a working table or is it handmade? Also, how comes there's SO MUCH SPACE under the hood? It's even spacier than with an SR20 engine I guess. Or is it due to the lack of wiring/hoses?.. Awesome build, can't wait to see it rip&tear :)
Alexander 2 months ago
@john somethin oh, thanks a lot! never payed attention to video descriptions before well, yea. cefiro's usually come with an RB motor, but pictures of their engine bays with sr20 still look way more 'crowded' than Taylor's :)

it's a portable with a mount. link to the base is normally in his description. the car came stock with a straight 6. so 4 leaves a lot of room

You should turn the intercooler to be the turbo inlet air-filter-box combo so the air coming through the intercooler, also feeds into the intake
morpheus01736 2 months ago
eh, na that wouldn't flow enough to cool the intercooler nvm

Taylor...the bead former you were using was the one made for 3/8" OD tubing with a minimal wall thickness. They have additional models that are suited for larger tubing. I'd imagine the parts on the one you got just weren't made for what you used them for. I think with your love of fabrication you should build your own using bead rolling dies. Wouldn't be that hard and would definitely be worth the effort!
