Been working on this for 3 years now just started driving her a month ago. Working out the kinks. VR6 motor runs hot. Still having cooling issues but she gets around lol

Welcome Welcome!

What a sweet ride, and nic engine. It looks red hot on the first pic of th engine! :-)

Haven't you mounted a scoop, to catch the air? Now all air just runs under it... and not through the rad.

Thanks Wilfred!
Just the lighting and crappy cell phone pic really jacked up that engine pic. It's actually hemi orange. Yup, right now just blowing past the fans. I tried to run a scoop but it didn't have any affect, actually made me run hotter than before. The rad is literally 3" off the ground so I have been trying to play with the idea in my head to create a side scoop that will run to the rad from the side and create enough high pressure below the rad to to flow through it. I'm pretty sure my pressure situation needs to be fixed down there. Here's a shot of my rad and the distance off the ground!

poo that's low.

I have a rad in the same position, but with a scoop. I never had the fans coming on on the highway...

It's really possible to make some improvements there I think.

Yeah being low is not practical. I'm thinking about raising it a little. Maybe that will be my winter project.

I like that van!! Reading what you've posted today ( originally thought you were anothe bullshit spammer) your van runs hot. Personally I would do it so the air from the front of the van passes the front and above your radiator pushing the air though the rad and down towards the ground. It's hard work to create this but so is sticking s VR6 into s bay window. Persevere with it and finish it properly. Get the cooling sorted. If I had a Bay window I would want it to look like that

Lol no not a spammer just a guy that stumbled across this forum a few years too late. Here's my build thread http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=540073&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 and some video http://youtu.be/uDiLIim8AJY there's not much room above the radiator but I have to do something. Def gonna try it. Thanks man it's taken a lot of blood, sweat and defeated nights to get this thing on the road.
