Thanks again you guys. Your words are my reward for the work and time in this truck.

Ronster-- I just realized that the air cleaner is not visible in the posted photo of the drivers side so here is one of the passenger side.

Is that a back pressure gauge for the air filter?

Thanks for that last photo. Looks like your jack lost its home, but I like how you routed to the "cool" side of the engine for your intake air. I had a cruise control motor in that corner for a while. Nice for some of the long trips that were taken.

I guess the only other question is how much you had to do to fit the intercooler. I'm guessing it could almost fit in front of the radiator brace. Mine has AC which restricts things a bit. I don't see a compressor under your hood, wait - I don't see a hood or a prop rod. I'm guessing you don't have A.C. or that you have cleverly hidden it from the rest of us.

I'll spoil this one. Paul doesn't have a/c on that truck. The intercooler was modified some, and it takes the space where my a/c condenser sits. He still moved the grille forward just a little bit, but not that we'd notice.

I also had a cruise servo in that spot near the fuel filter, but it's been gone for a while.

Paul had a post waaay back about his turbo and intercooler setup. See THIS ONE. Unfortunately, the first image (from PhotoBucket) has disappeared. Maybe he still has it somewhere (Paul, if you do, just email it and I'll put it back into that spot).

Jim--

I think you are asking about the filter minder thingy next to the fuel filter. This is a pressure loss gauge with a memory so's you can decide when your fuel filter is getting plugged. The boss gave this to me :) These are made by Stanadyne and sold by most diesel fuel shops.

Ronster-- The intercooler is from a Saab 9000 and the core is perfect to front the P'up radiator. But the Saab cooler had plastic manifolds which did not suit the need so they were replaced with aluminum ones made from tubing.

Paul's missing image has been replaced. You can see the ductwork in the photo. Thanks, Paul!

There are some great shots of just the intercooler in THIS POST.

THIS IS BRILLIANT!!!! The only thing I questions is the welding to cast. Now the welding to cast that I have done has been with cast chromium and all you have to do it getting it glowing hot and you can wire feed it. How did you do the welding?

I heated up red-hot then I Weld it with a wirefeed and when I'm done welding I keep it hot for approximately five minutes or so red-hot then I let it start cooling down slowly keeping it hot when it's all done I check for warpage usually you have some then I will usually either file it or I bolt it to the head and reheat it red-hot and tighten down the bolts this was my fourth one and haven't had any problem with any of them yet.

81 LUV tdi, if I sent you a manifold do you think you could weld me on a flange? And is it a t3 size flange?

Been a while since this thread experienced any action. As my desire to add a turbo has not been satisfied I did some more internet research. Here are a couple of links from the Luv truck forum. We had pictures earlier, but their forum tells more of the story:
