Cool Homemade intercooler shroud

Finally got around to making a shroud for my intercooler. It fits really nicely, the only downside is there's no more air flow over the turbo. I'm going to see if I can rig something up using one of the hood vents to supply the turbo with some air. Got a $13 sheet of aluminum from HomeDepot and started cutting. Also made a radiator shroud too!

Looks exactly like the one I made for my GravelSports top mount intake. Only, I took it off to paint it black to hide the sheet metal look. lol

Hopefully I'll be able to dump it this weekend; considering I'm putting in the AVO turbo kit shroud instead (along with a turbo and intercooler of course ).

Let me just say thanks... reading your post was just the motivation I needed. Mine is a little different as it's mounted on the SAAB 900 I/C... and right now I just have the cardboard mock up.

The shroud does seem to be working well though... just got back from testing and while the intercooler still heats up while boosting, the combo of shroud and hood scoop (installed 2 weeks now) cool it down to about 10C above ambient.

I imagine once I get the metal shield and insulation on, it will be much better. Then I'll make another duct similar to what you have to help guide air into the intercooler.

I need to do a completely custom hood scoop cutout on the hood, install some type of hood scoop for mine and then make one of those shrouds. I think I just want a small 2002 wrx scoop if I can figure out a way to retrofit it on my hood without it looking too out of place. By the way, I have the old hood on the outbacks and legacys...before they started molding a hood scoop right into the hood.

crk4, you could get a 97 outback hood, with the scoop and look stock. Try a junkyard and get it for cheap.

Yeah, I've looked for it and couldn't find one locally in my color (bright White) or without dings and dents on it. I'm sure they pop up but its not really the most important thing on my "parts to get" list right now. What I do need are freakin injectors that will fit my engine. 96 2.2 SOHC....Nissan Silvia is supposed to...damn i gotta find these.


back to work now
