Guys,

Just a heads up at this stage. After a couple of years of searching I have found an intercooler manufacturer that would make some coolers in the exact specs required to suit a Datsun 1600.

The core measurements are 400x300x65mm tube & fin, with 2.5 inlets/outlets. For anyone who has fitted one of the generic 450x300x76 would understand that they are just that little bit wide, but the more important measurement is the depth, the extra 11mm saved from the front is a big difference in a tight engine bay.

Anyway, I expect to have these in around 6-7 weeks time. Final pricing will be determined once they have arrived. I'll be replacing the bar & plate PWR cooler on my car with one of these to give more room to play with.

Thanks

Thanks for the heads up. Any chance of you messaging me when they arrive?
I'd be interested.
Thanks.

Will do. Will also update this post, so you could also setup a instant notification for replies to the post.

Thanks!

Also of interest is the fact that the intercooler that is thinner will provide less restriction to the radiator air flow. Could be a good thing...
Mine also has 3" inlet and outlet and I had to run 2.5 to 3" angled hoses. This should provide a little more room around that area with the 2.5" and shouldn't drop performance at all.

Yeah, it's the 2.5" inlet and outlet that I like.
Hoping the price is reasonable because I like the size.

I haven't found anyone else making this size before, which is probably why it took us so long to find a supplier willing to make them.

Given they were a custom size and not the generic 76mm depth, the price to manufacturer was higher than the last order. Expect the pricing to be $150-180 to give you a ballpark.

If you weld on a nice vband to the end tanks, and onto your IC piping, that would reduce the size of the bend (in turn reducing the cutting of the rad support even further) to allow the pipe work through past the radiator.

Thanks

Here we go goes, I'm impressed with the quality of these coolers. The core is 55mm depth, while the end tanks are 65mm, 11mm less than the existing coolers on the market which means less chopping all round for Datsun conversions.

For the FJ20 guys, that means 11mm more room between radiator and front of your water pump pulley. I will be installing one of these on my own car for that exact reason (fj20 clearance).

The price will be $175 + post. Pickup welcome in sydney when arranged, will even consider dropping off if you are within 15kms of us for a small fee.

Any questions please shoot me a PM. We only have 30 of these available and 5 have already been spoken for.

Cheers guys

Do you think 11mm extra room will be enough clearance for a waterpump, even with thermo's? I'd be super keen to go back to a mechanical if I could still keep everything behind the grille.

Possibly not with a centre mounted thermo fan on a radiator with a core thickness the same as a PWR or datsport radiator as an example (but I will let you know!). But if you had a wide radiator with 2 separate fans then this should work with a stock water pump.

Radiator width is limited by the cooler inlet/outlet pipes though. I did consider changing my single 16" fan for two smaller ones (10 & 12 if my memory serves me correct) to gain the room, but didn't want to spend the money on a whim.

I don't actually think it is, if you run 2 inch pipe work you'd be surprised how wide a radiator you can run. A friend of mine is running a radiator wider than the datsport radiator, and can get his 2inch pipe work round with minimal hassle. I will provide pics once he has completed his setup, although he will probably keep an electric water pump because he likes them for track work, he could scale back to a mechanical water pump and run 2 separate thermo fans if required.

One of the other main things I have noticed with these coolers now that I have my hands on them, is they only weight 2.7kg. Compared to a bar and plate 450x300x76 core IC that weighs approx 7.2kg, the weight difference is noticeable.

Thanks
