Scirocco radiator

PostPost by: steveww » Mon Feb 14, 2005 2:56 pm

I remember hearing that the VW Scirocco radiator will fit the baby
elan. There appear to be 2 types of radiator for this car 430mm and
525mm any know which one to use? Anyone have any fitting details?
Pictures would be nice.

Dear Steve,
I put an early golf rad in my S1 26R replica. It's very light, cools very well and gives loads more room in the engine compartment. I'm not sure on the mm size, it's been a while. I mounted it with a simple ally L bracket mounted to the inner fender and bolted to the stock radiator mounts. A little sheet ally for ducting to the grill opening and an electric fan and you're good to go. I've included some pics. The header tank is from Tony Thompson Racing. I'm thinking of selling my car and getting an Elise if anyoneis interested. John
