So has anyone used a proper radiator for their v-mount setup? Meaning one that has angled fins, not just a standard radiator in V mount fashion.

Process West uses a stepped radiator core in their version 2 kits.

I personally think it does not matter if you run ac and not a stepped ac condenser

Did you have to modify the front subframe for the exhaust?

Yeah, that's my car. How'd you find that video?

EDIT: Found it myself. I was wondering if/when pics/vids would come out.

It's been some time once again since my last update. I have switched out my intercooler again for the last time. It was a custom backdoor intercooler made specifically for me. The car is about to go into the shop in maybe 2 weeks or less. I'll update more when I head back home.



Enjoy the slight tease!

I asked him if he would sell just the cores to the radiator and he replied that he would sell just the radiator, i think he wanted 1,800 for the radiator. No thank you at that price.

Default process west vmount v2 with AC

Finally got my process west v2 V-mount, I modified the kit so that I could run AC on the setup. Had overheating issues with my old APS DR525 with my 35R setup on the roadcourse so time for an upgrade. Special thanks to Andrewtech for the great job on the install. Pics:


vmount radiator with AC condenser fitted, see 1 or 2 transmission coolers



2 or 2 transmission coolers (2 25 row mocal coolers to keep the 4eat cool for the track)











daily driven and track driven twinscroll 35R 4eat now with V-mount and AC

Default V-mount start

so I wanted to post up my initial progress on my v-mount setup. Over the Holiday break I worked on fabbing up my setup. My entire project is a low budget garage build by myself, and its a drift car and not a show car. I'm an accountant by profession, and a self taught mechanic in my spare time. Just wanted to put all that out there.

So yeah, the build went pretty well. I am waiting on custom pistons to be built for my ej22t/ v7 heads hybrid so I started mocking up the v-mount using tape for reference points without anything in the engine bay. After looking at all the build pics in this thread, I began questioning my measurements and decided to mount my motor just for reassurance in the build process so I knew for certain how much space I had to work with. Since I am waiting on pistons, I just connected the two block halves, put one head on (to be able to put on the intake manifold) and then put on the power steering pump for reference as to how much space I needed to leave for belt clearance and radiator pipe clearance.

In terms of the radiator mounting, I initially welded the stock lower radiator mounts to the cross bar of the bash bar I had previously fabbed up. I planned to make the entire v-mount cage intigrated into the bash bar. Therefore I could basically remove the entire front of the car and have clear access to the engine. I had made the bash bar to fit under my bumper so I knew that this was the most forward I could mount the setup. From this mounting point, I realized I would have enough room to mount the radiator and intercooler at a 90 degree angle, which I feel is ideal for a mount setup and really forces the air through both the IC and Rad. Therefore I took the rad and IC to my friend Jon at Future Fab here in Phoenix and had him tig four tabs to the setup so that the IC and Rad mount at a 90.

After further discussion, I decided to build the lower mounting points behind my crash bar for safety reasons. The final mounting location for the bottom of the radiator was about 1 inch back, and half an inch above the original location. I built my mounts for the rad and IC off the two mounts for the OEM bumper beam, which I cut to fit under my crash bar.

Over all, I'm pretty happy with how the setup currently looks. I'll be updating my build thread (here) with further progress but wanted to post this on this thread to hopefully encourage anyone that is thinking about taking this on as a DIY project.










some photoshops I made of an idea I was toying with haha...

^^^ Nice job. I like it. It's similar to the way I made mine except for the awesome cage setup. That's really cool.
