HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

TPC Radiator - How To Install ? (Solved) Empty TPC Radiator - How To Install ? (Solved)

Post  MotoRider42HC on Mon Jul 01, 2019 12:24 pm

----------
Update: Solved:
The TPC radiator is not a complete kit, and is not a direct-fit upgrade.
We had to take a 3lb hammer to the upper radiator support in multiple places.
Then we had to re-bend the provided brackets.
Then I had to 3D-print new upper radiator grommets ($9ea for OEM ones).
Then I had to go buy a 1/4" NPT fitting for the overflow/reservoir connection.
*And we plan to make another two support brackets to make sure it stays in place.
----------

So, I bought the Radiator Kit from TPC, and there were no instructions included at all.

How am I supposed to mount this thing???

Anyone have pictures of how the radiator is mounted?

Any pictures of how the coolant reservoir is connected to it?

What are these brackets for, and where do they go?

What are these three extra ports for?  Which one goes to the coolant reservoir?

The 2 aluminum brackets go on top of the radiator for the original bolts and grommets to set on. The large port on the top left corner of the radiator was meant for the Porsche fan switch, but the rad manufacturer screwed up on the thread size. So just leave the aluminum plug in. The small port above it is where the coolant bleed hose goes that attaches to the coolant reservoir. The coolant crossover pipe under the intake will tee into the hose that goes to the reservoir as well.

Something is definetely wrong, then. Those aluminum brackets are way too wide for the radiator he sent me, there is no way they'd hold it in place. Even worse, this is a 30-year-old car, but he expects us to use OEM rubber grommets? Really? He didn't bother to mention that, so those went to the dump three months ago along with the OEM radiator. I still have the radiator mounting bolts, but thats it.

He also did not include a fitting for hooking-up the coolant resevoir. Am i expected to know what size fitting to buy? AN? NPT? ???

I'll go get more pictures and post here soon.

(click on picture to see it)
the picture below shows that the brackets provided are almost 1/2" too wide
they do not fit at all

does anyone have pictures of the TPC radiator installed in their vehicle?

im not sure if your aware but the turbo radiator was 1" taller than the n/a, s and s2 rad, and the height difference was accounted for with a different lower rad support. im not sure but looking at the pics it looks like this rad is designed to replace a turbo rad and use a turbo lower rad support.

This TPC radiator kit came with a custom lower radiator support. There is about 1/2" to 1" mistake somewhere that is preventing me from installing the radiator.

Clarification - the Turbo and S2 rad are the same taller size. As you said, they are about 1" taller than the NA rad.
