repco sell derale kits which come with all the brackets and fittings for a direct fit to a BA. get the biggest cooler you can, and bypass the radiator circuit.

I installed a PWR one recently. It took me an hr and a half to do mine, having said that i took my time and could do it twice as fast a second time. Just need basic tools to install it. They can be bought from ebay, local parts stores would be able to order one for ya.

I did mine with a universal V8 PWR kit on my AU. Took about an hour and a half, and was pretty damn easy.

Kit was about $100 from Supercrap.

Yeah easy to do and I'd say nearly compulsory on BA's given their tendency for leaky radiators. I fitted one to my XT, easy job. Would have been even easier had my drill bit not been blunt :)

given my AU XR8 suffered massive trans dramas, cousins BA XR8, Uncles pursuit and a mates BA 6cyl all had dodgy trans's aswell I thought it would be a worth while investment. We do tend to pull alot of weight with them.

Definitely a smart investment, they should be essential standard equipment.
