That's awesome news, coming from drag racing I've always enjoyed your ability to build cheap speed. Even if it's not an engine platform I enjoy I like to follow along and see what you guys manage to do

I have a son who is a graphic designer should you need some professional input.

Anything that pays the bills:

Fabrication - Cages, Headers, Hot/Cold piping, Metal fab

Installation - Turbos, SCs, EFI, Engines, Trans, Rears

Services - Wiring, Welding, 3D Printing, Component design, Tuning, Troubleshooting, Chassis set-up, Machining, Rear end narrowing, Auto repair.

We will not be exclusive to 1320...we like 660 stuff too.  Just kidding.  I love all forms of racing and will take on anything that makes sense.

Merry Christmas from PACC Performance and PACC Racing

So now that my Stude runs again, it's back to working on the Fiat. Finished the passenger side motor mount.

Then got to work mounting our flea market special radiator. Naturally the outlets were in the wrong spot. Easy fix...

We even made it so that the factory lower Trailblazer radiator hose that came with the engine would fit with some cuts.

The part we cut off of the trailblazer hose will hopefully be used as the upper radiator hose.

They're physically incapable of not-awesome.  I saw Calvin try to unfold and set down a totally normal chair under the pavilion at the challenge and the berkeleying thing flew out of his hand, did a burnout, took off down the dragstrip and then came to rest at the table with a 9 second timeslip on it and that's when the tech inspector walked over and confirmed the 7.60 certification

Adjusted

Intercooler and rad are mounted. Also knocked out the charge piping.

Yes, it fits under the hood.

Clearly you all have no problems putting the intercooler in front of the radiator.  I've heard others say that's bad form.  Can you discuss your plusses/minuses on the topic?

Will you be running continuous ducting from the front end, around I/C, and all the way back to the radiator?

In reply to TVR Scott (Forum Supporter) :

We put the intercooler in front of the rad on all of our cars. Never had an issue. On all of them there is space for air to flow around the intercooler. On the Fiat we plan to make a duct for the air to pass over the intercooler.

With enough sawsall action anything is possible.

In all seriousness, I don't know. It might require a pretty significant hood bulge.
