I'm loving the work. Glad to see an ST165 getting some attention. Why don't you post this build in the "Projects" section instead? More views on that end. Really nice project you have going there. I love ST165s, ST205 and ST185 (in that particular order).

Good idea. How do you move the entire thread to a different forum? Is it something only a moderator can do? Help?

I took care of it. I moved it to the "My Project" section.

So on with the plan. I have been working on my cooler ducting.

These are the pieces that I made to duct the air from the bumper to the air box and the transmission cooler.

This is them in place. Except the base piece for clarity shown from underneath. You can see my trans cooler mounted in front of the wheel.

With base piece fitted.

Continuing

Front view of bumper ducting. The idea is that the large hole will take air straight to my airbox. The smaller hole will take air to flow over the trans cooler but what doesnt go through the cooler will be available to the airbox.

See that triangular hole next to the cooler? It goes into the airbox. With the inner guard in place the air will have access to the airbox.
DSC01970.JPG

Looking into the airbox from above. At the bottom of the picture you can see the triangular hole and to the left is a larger hole that I cut into the inner guard to allow more access for the spilled air. Oh and where does the air that has gone through the cooler go?

Glad you asked!

Out through here. The sharper eyed of you will recognize that louvre as a St185 bonnet louvre. I had bought them earlier for my bonnet but decided against using them but they were perfect for this job. The air should have a path out through here and the spinning wheel should help generate a venturi affect to help pull it through as well.

On the other side I have ducting for the oil cooler.
DSC01971.JPG

I dont have the flex yet so its not in place and I haven't plumbed the lines yet but you get the idea. I hope!

DSC01976.JPG

Same deal as the other side. It also has a louvre on the inner guard. See next post.

You can see the cooler through the louvres.

What the front looks like now.

Could you see the pictures ok? Nobody else could :shrug:

I am aiming for 300 plus at this stage. I would like to go above 350 but wont know until I finally get it going! I will try and get some more photos up soon. Just doing my exhaust at the moment, 3" stainless up to the down pipe, then a ceramic coated steel down pipe up to the turbo.

Thanks for your interest!

Damn!! The air box and catch gan look great!!! And I may have to look into the radiator option since I would like more room between the trub and radiator. Great job.
