Alternate Engine Got a Scooby motor in the back of your dub? Or a V8? Alfa? You know a Porsche motor drops straight in - right? This is the forum for you. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

im thinking i may utilise the existing heating pipeing and put a scoop at the front of the van, thru the centre pipe and up to the engine bay
im not running heat exchangers
and im using a propex!
I am running a Propex under the rear seat, but have it plumbed into what was the heat exchanger pipe into the rear heater, looped it underneath to the one that feeds the pipe to the front. I now have heat in the front, and a windscreen that actually de mists. Its not as hot as blowing the Propex directly out from under the seat, but it saves burnt feet, and getting hot too quickly.

Push it to the limit!

Check my split! :incheek:
