EJ turbo Ghia


I saw this at the Gold Coast show, and thought people might be interested in the pics. I like the guys handiwork. I think he did the carbon fibre himself. It has air con and everything.

I'll add better quality pics once the manxgallery service is back (dns probs)

It sure was nice to get back into the car at the end of the hot show and put the AC back on :)

Well you got me there, mine definitely doesn't look original :D

The KG is awesome, the guy has done some really nice work with it. It's good to see nice engine conversion cars getting around the shows these days.

I'd be amazed if he doesn't also use the front nostrils. The Ghia I built only used the nostrils and cooled way more than necessary..

My bro's WRX/Notch only has a hole around the size of the Ghia's one.... As long as the rad is sealed to the front body work and the hot stuff is directed away, under the car, it will work fine....



FUCH your early!

I saw the scoop but I dont see how it would direct the air to the radiator. Seems like it would force the air under the car.

There's no scoop anywhere near that inlet.... Has it been removed?.... Anyway.... We found thecar actually ran warmer when we tried scoops (3 designs) on the Notch... Weird huh?

You can see the scoop in the 3rd. pic. Did you use any more cooling holes in your Notch?

No other inlet holes.... The bolt in spare wheel well was removed and a boot partition was fabricated to separate the wheel well from the front boot area.... This also helped to keep the fuel temp down in the tank.... But you can't let the fuel get too low (below 1/4 full), otherwise the fuel gets to hot... Under the tank there is also a shroud that directs the hot air past the beam and away from the tank base and swirlpot...



FUCH your early!
