TA are not cheap, but don't flog Chinese knockoffs either. A genuine Setrab is not a cheap bit of kit, you got a bargain there.

only special people can buy from that site... :lol:

I did get a bargain with the cooler, ive been holding out a while to find a cheap fan kit for it, they are just too rare by the looks of it. £135 is the cheapest ive found. And it will need it, so ill have to get it some time soon.

Do love that cohpro site spend ages looking through all this stuff i didnt know i needed :lol: i do want/need the pushfit stuff though, easier to do at home. Oh! and of course a provent bracket......... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :cheese

No need, all the parts that fit T3, T4, LT are in the respective categories on Brickwerks, it's there to service mainly Australian and American Porsche people but sell a bit to the Merc and BWM lot too.

At the moment, none. Setrab come with female m22 threaded holes. You have to get an adaptor nipple, so i was going to get M22 -1/2" like so .
https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/setrab- ... rs-501683/
and have the same connection size on the sandwich plate.
Then use a fitting like this http://www.mattlewisracing.co.uk/produc ... wis_racing
to connect the hose up, thats to use 1/2" hose. not sure whats best/easist/cheapest yet. 1/2" or 3/8"

Sent you a table (email) with data in for hoses, if you get M22 to M18 it's nice and easy then, we can swage the hoses here.
We've also got some 12mm SS overbraid hose, forgot to send details for that but that's here.

A little mock up of where its going, a little trimming of the old brackets is needed so it fits flat. not too big a job though.
