Where would be the best position to place a 740 intercooler into a 240? I was thinking in front of the radiator, a little lower to the ground. You have any experience in this?

Err, umm. Well I would toss this question to the 200 series forums for starters. I think there is some semi related topics in there already with responces.<BR>Secondly I would contact and email: <A HREF="http://www.easternaerospace.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.easternaerospace.com/</A> <A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.ipdusa.com/</A> <BR>And see what they have done in the past, if they think they'll sell you something they should be more than helpfull.<BR>Personally I think you're on the right track with down low in front of the rad, but you'll obviously have to fabricate some kind of brackets to hold it in place. Maybe cut away some of the front spoiler. Hopefully you can track down someone who has tried it.<BR>I'll keep my eye out for some useful info if it comes my way.<BR>Good luck! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

How about in the stock location, between the A/C condensor and the coolant radiator. I'm not sure if you need 240T or 740T brackets, but either should be able to be made to work. What sort of engine is this for?<P>

the stock position is behind the radiator. but since the car runs a little cold (the temp needle never went past 1/4 way up) i thought it i might reposition it to get better efficiency. it's for a 240 not 740.

I'm no turbo genius, but you might want to consult Corky Bell's book, 'Maximum Boost' for proper placement of the intercooler. Loads of info in there on building custom and modifying existing turbo systems.
