Dana Long is manufacturing coolers that are 25% smaller and 10% more efficient in cooling.
An air/water cooler might be the best bet given limited space in the wind.
Coupled with aluminum extra core radiator to cool extra heated coolant required in such a system may solve the spacial dilemma provided your wallet has the capacity.

I think with the g intercooler everything should fit and work out fine. Factory also shows a secondary coolant radiator installed so I assume more is needed but for now I will follow factory design and see what happens. Believe or not it’s probably not that more expensive - time or money you still pay for it somehow.

Haven't looked closely at 606 engines but with the 617A.
Since the turbo is pretty much integral with the intake and exhaust manifolds.
How are you routing the compressed air from the turbo outlet to the after cooler and then back to the intake port when the turbo outlet already occupies the space?
463 must have cooler, heat exchanger, accumulator, circ pump and all the connective plumbing.
Lots to fit somewhere.

606 didnt have this setup.
I think the 280 cdi and the 300cdi were the main ones to benefit from the sandwich pack.
I ll finish it and post how I did it. Just a few weeks away. Stuck on radiator retrofit for just a second. But should move ahead shortly.
