Pro Alloy V8 Intercooler kits group buy...


Recommended Posts

@cweeden

Any update on progress?  As I understood, ProAlloy had the car back with the original installation since some time.

Hi Mike,

I'm not sure why you think ProAlloy have had the original car already. I am still working hard to make that happen. I think we are getting close and I am waiting on ProAlloy for an update.

I expect to email the group buyers sometime this week.

cheers

It was the message from 13th April that gave that impression Chris.  I know that ProAlloy are always busy, so not surprised that progress is slower than expected.

Ah yes, this comment I suspect "I have managed to re-establish contact with ProAlloy after a period of radio silence and they have said they will contact Nick shortly to get his car in and get started on the templates and jigs."

I will have to work on a new definition of the term 'shortly', I was hoping it was accurate when I wrote it. 🤣

cheers

I'll start writing one out. I'm a bit concerned that some sniffer program in the web world will sniff out my post above and I'll have SAS bursting through the front door.

I think it's time for the first of those weekly updates.   It would be really welcome to receive a regular status update.

Hi Mike, sorry I didn't see this message, for some reason I am not being alerted to updates on this thread ( @Bibs any setting I need to tweak?). I don't have any new info, Alex is the man to update us.

cheers

Hi Filip,

I've just replied to your message and welcome you to the channel, in my view the more the merrier. 🙂

I've also scrolled up a little and noticed Kendall Faeth, @cashiew86 has also asked to be added to the list. This is proving to be very popular. 👍

Kendall, I notice you are in the US, are you aware that the US emissions equipment might be in the space needed to install the charge coolers?

@ProAlloy-Alex, can you confirm that you can add @Escape (Filip) and @cashiew86 (Kendall)  to the list of customers please?

cheers

-Chris

Hi Alex,

How about the first of those weekly updates?  That was the intention almost a month ago now.

Please can you provide us with some information and perhaps even an outlook as to when the kits may be available.

I understand it's a big project and will take time to execute, but that is an even better reason to provide regular info on the current status.

Kind regards,

Mike S

Hello everyone. 

Time for a new update for you all (that is well overdue and will be explained as to why) 

All engine bay parts has been removed from the original/custom initial Charge Cooler build here and currently underway with another fabricator here (we have 2 at points working together on this mammoth project when we can) building all the jigs to allow us to produce multiple units with each unit being identical with regards to fitment. 

Next up beginning of next week, we plan to begin removing the front end of the cooling package in which we can then start the jig work for the pre-rad units as well.

Later this week, i plan to take images of the engine bay parts for clarity to each member of comprising items AND what is required with the cast boost pipes on how these are modified as well and the reasoning behind why we require these supplied on this part.

Adding onto the 'group buy' of extra members is not a problem at all! We are going ahead and 'standardising' what was a custom build into one that we can confidently replicate for all of you :) This means we can always add more members into the buying stages but simply means extra kits will be build at a later date as we can always began the final manufacture of the 20 off charge cooler cores for 10x members. Any extra will require hand-building but simply cant be done at the same time, that's all 

As for the Federal spec vehicles who are interested in the kit, we will need to pin down any engine bay changes and/or extra components with detailed images of the location of these parts to ensure our kit will work for you. We aren't however able to offer a different kit for the US spec cars as we only have 1x Esprit to work from and unable to add in further development for this reason.
