Had a chance to continue work on the AX Stang, mounting a Volvo intercooler and radiator.

Uses the factory Volvo fan as well as the factory mustang hoses. Two 1 1/2" strips of aluminum using two factory holes at top of radiator support and 4 self tappers on bottom of rad support four nuts and bolts and four random bushings 1" at top and 1/2" at bottom to make the radiator plumb(level but in the vertical sense). Don't know if I'm going to relocate battery or just get a Honda size battery and make a new batt tray... Then it's time for whiney boy!

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
That 2.3 must have a lot of intake suction to collapse the air cleaner like that...o_O
