I'd say your best bet is to pull apart the front end of your car a bit and measuring it yourself.

At a guess i'd say it would, because that is smaller than the AC condenser. I'd still be checking and taking measurements before buying.

So is this a transmission cooler? a bit of overkill unless your doing some serious towing

A 600x300x65 will fit behind a el xr6 . You'll need to trim the front bar a little.

+1 on it being connected to a turbo :D

I was that someone lol
I had an intercooler on my ef. had it plumbed up . Then brought the xr6 and stripped the ef. Decided to wait till I turbo it.

It got a few looks with the front mount . Once a guy in a el mont spotted me. Turned around and wanted to race haha.

But yea gather parts now for your turbo build, and do research etc then when it's time you'll know what your doing and wont be there scratching your head lol

i have seen one in real life...
a guy had it all plumbed up to go through to the TB and all.
and it was polished silver so it would stick out. i couldnt believe my fuken eyes.

he rekoned it workes well coz it cools the air down goin into the engine. to say the least i was gobsmacked :roll: :roll:

be a shme to get a floggin from a car slightly more powerful than yours is tho.

and as soon as you wind it up anyone with any brains and doesnt hear a turbo boosting will laugh instanty.

before you buy your cooler decide on how your going to run any pipework and what size pipe your going to run... no point buying the cooler if you dont really have a plan of attack..lol
imo the cooler would be one of the last things to buy, and you will be shocked at how much cost and works involved custom making pipework, unless you can tig weld?

why would you need to know how to TIG, a MIG is more then capable, of if keen, theres no reason an arc welder couldn't do the job.
