Yeah it had previously been reinforced by a piece of angle iron but it was still pretty sketchy. I could have riped the drivers side radiator mount off with my hand. even with it only being tacked in place the radiator was way more solid then before.

Looking at your car, I wouldn't suspect it to be that rusty! Awesome work!

It looks good as long as you dont get under it. The core suport is the worst of it. I still plan to patch in a few other spots and undercoat the car. I thing 2g DSM's came off the assembly line with rust.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

I got the core support welded this weekend and took advantage of the warm weather today to paint it before welding it onto the car. I also repainted the front of the fraimrails while the front was taken apart. I will hopefully be welding it up to the framerails tomarrow. onto the pics.

I have a Century 110v flux-core MIG That I use for small projects and tacking. My dad has a Harbor freight 220 MIG That I use for bigger stuff. Both work really well for being cheaper machines.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

The core suport is now fully welded in. Welding it to the frame rails went pretty good except for a few burns on my arms because I had to lay completley under the car to weld the back sides. I think I need to add a pair of good welding leathers to my X-mas list. Welding the hood latch suport was a little tricky. it was pretty rusty and crusty at the bottom so it just wanted to burn away. I also had to get the hight and angle just right so the hood would line up properly. I ended up notching it at the top and adding a piece of flat steel to reinforce it, I then cut 2 inches off the bottom to get to some weldable steel and added some more flat stock to get it to the tubular support. I finished off by zip-tieing the wireing harness to the support. I test fit the radiator and it fits great.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

Looking good Carl!

Boy, I'm glad I never drove mine in winter, seeing rust like that reminds of the 100 other DSM's I had years ago. Still needs a lot of cleanup though.

its worked alright. I went 11.55 with it. I'm planning on upgrading it before spring. I was getting some knock at the end of a 1/4 mile run I think it was heat soaking. I am planning on keeping the same pipeing unless I find a deal on a full kit.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

I picked up a Precision 750HP intercooler today off of Craigslist. Its a little dirty but in good shape. I welded mounts off the tubular core support. It is nice and solid and the pipeing I have will hook right up. I also got the stock radiator ducting from the parts car I picked up and modified it to work with the new FMIC.

Oh it will do the trick. 24 X 10.5 X 3.5 its a Garret core Precision. One of the best intercoolers you can get same as I had on my old car.

Nice hopefully your cooling system keeps up now, although 2gs are a lot better than 1gs.

I hope so too. Its is going to be ducted and use the stock fans so I think it will be ok. I really want to be able to use the A/C.

Aaron how is the anodizeing holding up on your intercooler? Does it have any rock chipping or anything. I am thinking about doing this one black but want to make sure it will hold up before I spend the money.
