Builing a 489 ci BBC with a 101. Non intercooled, full size radiator for street use. Still havent made the first cut trying to figure out how to mount it. Thinking it will be mounted east west at the lower rad support (trimming upper and lower rad to just a thin strip) with a custom bar between the subframe to hang the turbo from. Rad will have to go infront of rad support closest to nose.

Pics would help, thanks.

There's a thread in this section called 106 in an fbody that you should check out. It should give you some ideas.

Thanks yeah I have read that one but with the BBC its so much closer to the rad support now. Was gonna mount the turbo low but now I am paranoid about oil drainback. Guess we will revisit fitting it higher up.

You can just run a scavenge pump if you have to... The motor is only another inch or so forward so it shouldn't be taking up that much room.

I would not use those braided flex couplings.

If thay have the liner inside should be fine
If they have a solid liner, if it is a mesh inner liner dispose of quickly.
