|The new Intercoolers for the Stage II kit
are 33% thicker and they actually seem to fit into the nose of the
The new replacement radiator cradle easily bolts in place of the original one.
The lower air conditioner hose is "Żl_" shaped and it has to be straightened out to make it long enough to let the radiator and a/c condenser go down into there new lowered and laid back position. We used a large C-Clamp and a block of wood to straighten the line. Be careful not to crimp or flatten the line. The top a/c line also needed minor adjustments.
|The kit came with a piece of radiator hose
and the hardware to extend the lower radiator hose.
TECH TIP: The Procharger manual shows that the hose that they provided is supposed to be trimmed, but we thought that it looked nicer and fit better installed untrimmed as shown in Figure 3A above. It also gave us even more length.
We had to trim about a inch off of the top radiator hose as shown in Figure 3B above. This was not mentioned in the Procharger manual either. The hose got into the traction control unit and became kinked without trimming it.
The sub-bracket mounted to the head easily and we used Lock Tite on the bolts to make sure it stays.
When mounting the bracket to the supercharger, be sure not to forget to install the long bolt that acts like a stud. See Figure 3C.
|The intercoolers bolt in easy enough after
figuring out which bolt holes in the frame of the car to use.
The instructions talk about there being two bolts directly below the
head lights, but there are three. Use the bottom two holes.
Installation of the intercooler tubes went smooth and required very little trimming.
