Removed the bumper today to fix a weird as leak I couldn’t seem to figure out. That little corner when you pull the carpet back would get drips of water coming from the body panel causing a super small tiny little pool and make the car humid and muggy. With water testing by placing the outer tail light back on & the bumper removed. I came to the conclusion it was the small outer seals on the tail lights. They were extremely corroded. Ran a hose on the tail light with the new seals and no leak.

My coil pack plugs were all jacked up so I replaced them with new ones, installed SC Skunkwerkz grounding kit, and put in some NGK 91006 plugs.

Noticed the tab on one of the coils sheered off so I’m on the look out for a good deal on some coils.

it's doable with the factory lock carrier I believe, I've been trying to figure out how to keep the AC condenser and parts with the TCR setup since I live in So-Cal
Get a smaller condenser heat exchanger and move it to the fender with some ducting...?

Less capacity to cool, but without removing it from the ic and rad you'll never get max cool capability for the engine

Have you looked at the RX7 V mount conversions? The one on that yellow car is very similar to my cousins' set up, but he placed the condenser at the bottom edge of the radiator. Don't know if it would bring any benefit by doing so. I don't know if the Golf has the same amount of real estate as the RX7... He had 2 fans underneath and a stainless expanded metal mesh to prevent any debris from hitting the fans or the bottom of the radiator. He also had the same mesh on the bumper opening as it was a street car to protect the condenser and intercooler.

Back then everything was custom, they have a few kits now. For reference...

Reason I asked in the first place was because the TCR car uses that scoop to evacuate air from the IC.

I know... but as he noted, the TCR (the actual track car, not the street version) don't have A/C. I posted the RX7 links because V mounted IC/Radiator/condenser is a common aftermarket upgrade. It was posted as a reference/inspiration on what can be done. I'm sure @Track R is probably familiar with the RX7 set up, but maybe other people here are not.

Understood!
