I have spent the last week with her and I can tell you this is a special car...folks stand and stare...the desire to build something similar to this is overwhelming

"The Hulk" will make its debut (hopefully) at the World Time Attack challenge in Sydney Australia next week ( http://www.worldtimeattack.com/ )
Its coming along great Kev.

The car when we sold it to Jas/Autotech was just a shell with cage and wide body with boot lid and doors and other sti goodies. and way under 80000 AUD

(process west V-mount kit is the way to go!

I think I can fit an 11"H condenser on the front, or at least that's the plan for now.

I'm looking for a condenser as well. Do you mind sharing some of your possible options?

I used these for hood pins http://www.quik-latch.com/

They're awesome and surprisingly strong. I want to mount the bumper with them now. Too bad they're not cheap.

I'm debating whether I should use it for the ducting too. It seems like the bumper may flex too much and crack it. Temps are stable at 185 with just the single fan and driving around with no ducting. Going to add the second fan later

Final product with ducting finished and painted:

I also blocked off the hood scoop with a plate, but it's right behind the inlet. I also cut out 2 holes in the hood following the hood reinforcements.
Luckily for us JBP guys, it's hard to spot at first glance. It's hardly noticeable, but I can see the heat coming out when the fans kick on. I've also seen rain bounce out from it while driving.

I have a question about under body aero with v-mounts. So the stock radiator can suffer from poor flow if the stock scoop is left open because of the high pressure it causes at the back of bay. How does this apply to a v-mount setup? Do you remove the under tray to force the air down? Or should I cut a vent in the under tray? I know that at idle regardless of undertray or not, the intercooler starts to get hot because the heat is rising. I haven't fabbed a duct for the intercooler yet. It's fine once the car is moving though, so I know that I'm getting flow through the intercooler (my IAT is in the end tank). Do most of you remove the under tray? I don't know much about aerodynamics, but I do understand the necessity of removing pressure behind the radiator. I've been looking for pics of ducting behind the radiator (not the intercooler) where the radiator is angled down. Most of the elaborate ducting I've seen on v-mounts has the radiator angled upwards and the heat venting through the hood. It doesn't make sense to me to angle the radiator downward but have the ducting rerouting it back up toward the hood. If anyone has pics, please post them. Most of the pics in this thread are with the bumper off and I guess most of the ducting removed.

Thanks. I'll go look for pics. That's what I assumed as I could feel the heat start to rise in the bay (obviously), but I've seen most of the vents go upwards.

It's hard to tell but are there aero pieces behind the radiator at all? It's hard to believe that they would leave the whole underside exposed. But then again, I doubt that they care much about making it last, so long as it lasts the whole race.

The fans and ducts are not in on those pics. There are ducts behind though just going down, nothings going to go up inside it while moving fwd.
