As the owner of this g single cab utility I can assure you this is not my first rodeo.
The intercooler is force fed air by 3 fans mounted above the shown top face currently. It also is in the process of being shrouded with sheet metal and rubber to ensure that basically there is more cold air going through the top face than there is hot air coming up to escape the engine by. I'm extremely confident that the scoop is sufficient as I have a colleague who got 400hp from an Isuzu single cab ute with this scoop.
I will get around to posting more pics of the intercooler in current guise and this vehicle pulls like an absolute train in Second gear and my e46 m3 cannot get away from it when turbo is on song.
Engine is an om606 with dieselmeken pump and hybrid kkk turbo.
Conservative 250hp and serious diesel torque.
Where we are in australia a front mount intercooler is a death sentence. I have a w463 front bar and was about to fit factory set up but decided against it. As grazza pointed out there is not a single serious 4wd sold here with a front mount.our fine grass seed blocks them in minutes in outback.
I will keep you all informed as this vehicle tackles some very tough terrain.
Thanks for the update really look forward to seeing the fan configuration that you will be installing. I am currently in the planning stage for a water/air intercooler.
Thanks for posting
