I'll bite. This has been in the back of my mind for a long while, and just entered into my personal "skunkwerks" production last night. I had to do SOMETHING with all these empty boxes from Summit piling up!!! Its obviously not done, not even to the prototype phase. Plans are to make it out of sheet aluminium, maybe a fiberglass model. I would have liked to weld sections of it together, but I only have the ability to weld steel. So I'll probably end up using clecos, pop rivets and/or maybe some countersunk bolts.
The intercooler as you can see rests on a piece of steel bar stock. This was the original way I mounted it when I first swapped the L28ET in the car. I'm retaining that bar stock, but cutting out the middle section inwards of the lower intercooler mount bosses. Then I'll reweld sections of it to the lower rad support in a triangle shape. In the void created, I'll be mounting a low profile oil cooler in a "V" angle in relation to the intercooler (clearance issues, especially with the -10 inlet/outlet).
I'm also thinking about enlarging the hole on the right side of the radiator support (below where I pass my intercooler plumbing) to pass plumbing for a cold air intake. The filer will be about half the size shown protruding into the ducting. Of course, it will be sealed in.
The whole idea of the design is to block off the upper portion of the grill as others have done, but also retain a stock look from a distance. So I've designed it to fit neatly behind the stock 240z upper grill. I originally was going to drill out the spot welds and remove the 280z turn signal brackets, but they work PERFECTLY for mounting this setup
